I couldn't be more happier that I made the decision to attend Quinnipiac University. I love that the school offers so much to do on campus and there are so many clubs and organizations to be a part of. The school itself is stunning and very well maintained. Quinnipiac has the best school spirit. There is always an exciting game to go to, especially the hockey games at the TD Sports Complex! I also strongly believe that Quinnipiac has great professors who actually care about their students and their success. Classroom sizes are typically small, and many professors get to know their students personally. I can't wait for the years to come!
It's hard for students in sports to join greek life, not impossible but hard. Sports are demanding and time consuming on their schedules. Greek life hold meetings at night and weekends which can interfere with sports, or sleep. Neither can miss attendance. Greek life at Quinnipiac is base on doing good for the community and the select philanthropy they are known for. I was accept into Kappa Alpha Theta and love my sisters and the work we do! Connecticut does not have separate houses for Greek life.
Quinnipiac Hockey is the best! Almost every student has attended a game because it is the only sport in the school that is really well known. When most people hear "Quinnipiac", they always say "hockey". Unfortunately, most other sports teams do not receive the same attention. I wish more students would go to the basketball games or the soccer games.
