I have so far very much enjoyed my time here at QU. The professors I primarily deal with are in the political science, philosophy, and criminal justice departments and they are all so helpful! I only gave 4 out of 5 because I seem to always have trouble with the people working in the registrar and the business office, but everything else is great.

Quincy University has been such a great environment to get involved, make friends, and to get my higher education. The campus is a place where everyone knows each other, and the people and faculty genuinely care about the students. It is a place where you get to be on a first name basis with the cafeteria workers and all the heads of the different departments. The campus is small, which always brings comfort because you can walk through and see all the buildings around and most likely run into a few friends on the way to class. While it gets a reputation for being boring sometimes, the students know how to make the best of their experience here, and as long as the student makes the most of what they have, they will have fun everyday here.
What I like about Quincy University is how diverse and open the school is to students. The teachers a very interactive and classes are interesting and fun to sit through, the teachers really want us students to take something back from their classes.
What I dislike about QU, is that there isn't much help they offer for students in need of financial help. There are also certain staff and faculty members who are rude to students when they ask for help.
