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.

My school is far smaller than my high school I attended which made things very strange and uncomfortable at first. Though this may be a downfall to most, having such a small school is what makes Quincy unique. Less number of students in a classroom allows for the teachers to be far more hands on and answer multiple questions throughout the day. Also, personal relationships are made between the teachers meaning if a major favor is needed, there's a possibility that if the relationship at hand is on goof terms the teacher will do everything in their power to help.
I absolutely love being a music major at Quincy University!!! The professors are extremely kind and helpful. They will always take time out of their day to talk to a student. The school is expensive, however you can take up to 18 credit hours for the same price. If you are in the honors program you can take more without additional costs. They keep their students active. School spirit is very high and sports teams are fun to support.
