Quinnipiac is where professors who want to know students by name come to teach, and where students who want a personal, challenging education come to learn. At Quinnipiac, students are our first, second and third priorities. What does that look like? Our faculty and staff look to engage students in examining their educational goals and identifying the learning outcomes that are important. Our Learning Paradigm emphasizes the intellectual and interpersonal outcomes of your education.
Quinnipiac is a medium-size university offering big opportunities.
You'll find top-rated academic programs, classes averaging 25 students and a student-to-faculty ratio of 16 to 1-plus Division I athletics. Those are just some of the reasons why Quinnipiac is consistently ranked among the best universities offering undergraduate and master's degree programs by U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review.
In our hands, technology offers amazing hands-on experiences. All three campuses are wireless and students receive tech support at the technology center in the Library. Students simulate buying and selling stocks in the Terry W. Goodwin '67 Financial Technology Center, produce news packages in the fully digital high-definition broadcast studio, study how the human body moves in the motion analysis laboratory, and the Sim labs offer lifelike situations for those studying health care.
Quinnipiac is all about students.
Collaborative, innovative teaching is so important to us that we give three Center for Excellence in Teaching annual awards to professors who do it best. Our faculty members are experts in their field, generous with their time and eager to share their knowledge. But that's not all. We also give Center of Excellence in Service to Students award to three staff members each year who offer great service. Students will experience that as they explore career development, the Learning Commons, residential life, recreation and elsewhere.
Quinnipiac is the best of a small town/big city.
Quinnipiac offers the best of small-town spirit with access to lively alternatives. You'll feel it the moment a huge team of upperclassmen help you unload your car and move into your freshman residence. You'll feel it at meals--faculty and students eat in the same dining halls. And you'll feel it in our small classes. Within the town of Hamden, you'll find lots to do, and we're just eight miles north of New Haven with outstanding restaurants, museums, theater and concerts.
Quinnipiac is forever.
