What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
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.

Quinnipiac has a beautiful campus right across from Sleeping Giant state park; no matter what season it is the campus is stunning. The class sizes are nice and small so it is easier to learn in the classroom. The professors are amazing and try to help you in any way possible.
