One thing I always loved about Quinnipiac University is the beauty of its campus! It is such a relaxing environment and you never get bored of looking at that view. Quinnipiac was a very convenient choice for me because I was planning on being a commuter and the campus is close to home. In my second year here, I can say with certainty that everyone here is so friendly and always willing to help you. The professors are amazing and they will do everything they can to make sure you are understanding the concepts and succeeding academically. Another interesting thing about Quinnipiac is that it has many clubs and organizations available. In this way, each student can definitely find something that matches their hobbies and interests. And lastly, I am glad I chose Quinnipiac because it offers such an interesting major, which is Behavioral Neuroscience. I recently declared it and I can't wait to explore it further more in the months to come!
Review Quinnipiac University
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!
My experience with the school is amazing! I am definitely receiving a quality education. However, I do find the costs of the school high. I do have a fairly hefty scholarship, but I am still paying way more than I should be, not including the cost of dorm supplies, school supplies, and books!
