It's an active spring semester!!

Spring has finally arrived at our campus in Hamden.  And a sure sign of spring is Admitted Students Days which took place on March 29 and 30.  The Admissions Office was excited and pleased to welcome so many of our admitted students for a final chance to connect with faculty and staff, tour our campuses and learn about what happens outside the classroom.

Although the skies were gray, the mood was upbeat and the tours went on with only a few showers to dampen the mood.

The admissions office welcomes any communication with accepted students.  You can also sign up for QU4U and QU Parent View our on line communities for future Bobcats.

With only five weeks left in the semester, the Class of 2017 will be heading home after a successful first year.  We look forward to meeting the members of the Class of 2018.

Quinnipiac students committed to service

Quinnipiac students are preparing for their Spring Break which begins in just over a week.  But, before the students depart for their service trips, visits home and vacations they are spending significant amounts of time raising awareness and funds for charity.

The video above was made to publicize QTHON 2014.  The event takes place on March 1.  The proceeds from this dance marathon will go to support the local Children's Miracle Network and the Connecticut Children's Medical Center. 

In addition, there are many young men walking around in the cold with shaved heads.  They lost their locks for St. Baldrick's.  In what has become an annual tradition, the students solicit pledges for their "sacrifice" and the funds are then contributed to The St. Baldrick's Foundation which provides support specifically to pediatric cancer research.

These are but two of the numerous philanthropies that Quinnipiac students support through fundraising and volunteering.  The admissions officers are often asked about the "typical Quinnipiac student".  Although our students come from many places and study many different things they all do have one thing in common...  The willingness to give of themselves in service for others.
