Quincy University is like a big family home. Everyone knows everyone for something or other. Everyone is very friendly, loving and accepting.

Quincy University is a campus near the Mississippi river and is gorgeous. The staff are all very friendly and willing to help many people when ever they need to or are needed. Like the staff the students are all very outgoing and willing to meet new people, after being accepted for the fall semester I am proud to say i'm a Quincy Hawk.
