    There are so many events that are held on campus and so many ways in which to get involved at Quinnipiac. Some of my best friends have been made right on campus. The size is absolutely perfect as well: large enough to always stumble across an unfamiliar face in the caf, but small enough so it isn’t difficult to spot your lab partner or last year’s roommate while walking on campus. The grounds are absolutely breathtaking, especially in the fall, and there is an overwhelming sense of community. Class sizes rarely exceed 35 students (with obvious exceptions, of course), and your professors take the time to get to know you. It is not uncommon to run into a professor in the caf and have a conversation with him or her while in line to pay for your food. Quinnipiac is truly a home away from home, and I didn’t get that feeling when visiting other universities. The fact that the main campus is not extremely large also makes it quite nice to walk to class, especially in the cold. If, by chance, you are displeased with something on campus or you want a change made, Student Government goes above and beyond the call of duty to make the student body happy, and the administration is very accommodating.

    While this University did not end up being an appropriate fit for me personally, I did meet a lot of great people. A large part of the student body participated in University sanctioned events such as Hall Wars and other programming that can be overlooked by the general population at a larger school.

    I transferred to Quinnipiac from a big school that had various campuses scattered over neighboring towns. I didn't like the big school atmosphere and Quinnipiac was just the right change. There is plenty to do at QU, there are local stores, restaurants, and bars and if you want to go out a more busy atmosphere the school has shuttles that go out of town to New Haven where there are clubs, museums, and plenty of more activities to do. I also love that there are so many organizations that students can get involved in, and there is always something to do each day so you can never get bored!
