Quincy University offers multiple different majors for students. As an NCAA Division 2 school, our athletics provide students with a great on the field/court learning experience in which each student athlete can learn in every day life (hard-work, determination, effort). The on campus student life is very outstanding. The campus is very warm and welcoming and there is never a moment of boredom- there is always something to do on campus! Around campus there is multiple bars and restaurants in case a student isn't feeling up for our Cafe. Campus security is ALWAYS available at any time of the day which makes the campus life more reassuring and enjoyable.

I love Quincy University because, despite its small size, it truly did give me the entire college experience in my first year there. They were sure to get people involved on campus and there was always some type of event happening. The small-town feel really comes across when you live on campus and it was super easy to make friends. The only thing I found myself disliking was the state of the dorms. The freshman dorm was slightly outdated and while I was there, we experienced some problems with the building itself. Though this year COVID-19 did send many students home, Quincy University still maintained on-campus housing for those who needed it and made sure we all were well informed about what actions they were taking to ensure safety. They handled it very well.
For the last half of the Spring semester, classes were entirely online. All of my teachers were very clear about their own hesitations about moving to the online platform in the wake of the pandemic, however, each of them made sure to keep communication open as they made the transition. Overall, it ended up working extremely well. The teachers took the feedback to make the classes easier for not only the students but for them as well. I do not think there was much more that any of my teachers could have done to make it any better for those involved than what they did. They managed to successfully teach us the material as well as making it extremely easy for us to voice our concerns regarding their classes.
