What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
Quinnipiac University is the best decision I have ever made. The physical therapy program is one of the best in the country. The campus thrives from all the energy of intelligent students.
Kaitlin from Commack, NY
I could not ask for a school where I feel most at home. The students are so caring and full of life, the classes are challenging and educational, and the views are absolutely beautiful. I would rate Quinnipiac University as an A+.
Hannah
as i reflect on my first year at quinnipiac, my main thoughts are about the careers in the health field that i have been exposed to. this university is highly ranked for their health sciences programs and i understand why; faculty work strongly with students to enhance their knowledge making, and i have appreciated all the help. all it takes from a student is to reach out to faculty, who are eager to aid in his/hers process of career development. although the student body is not large and is majority females, i've created strong bonds with both faculty and students. for my particular career in the health sciences, i am very passionate about my school.
