Quincy University Reviews
Quincy University has small beautiful campus and honestly, I like that. The experience that the staff had shared with me while I was touring the university was absolutely great. I really enjoyed every moment on my visit and I hope this will be my next school!
Quincy University is an amazing school in a great small location in Adams County. Not a day goes bye without enjoying a nice sporting event, hanging out with friends, or meeting a new friend. Quincy University is a top notch school when it comes to education. This is the reason why Quincy excels at academics. The hands on training at Quincy is superb. Every teacher cares and wants to help each student be the best at what they want to be in life. That is what makes Quincy so great, everybody's on one page and have the same goal to be the best student, to be the teacher, to be the best athlete to be the best period. That's what makes Quincy...... Quincy.
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.
