Multicultural Admitted Students Day

Multicultural Admitted Student Day

The Multicultural Admitted Student Day is an opportunity for newly admitted students and parents to participate in a full-day program that provides exposure to campus life, resources geared toward student success, and an introduction to the faculty, administration and students of the university.

The Multicultural Admitted Student Day is designed for students from traditionally under-represented and marginalized groups, such as African-American, Hispanic/Latinx American, Native American and Asian-American. This program is one of many university-wide efforts to support our commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity.

Please watch your email for registration information.

You’ll want to experience this

Each of our campuses has been purposely designed to deliver the quintessential student experience with your learning at its core. Admitted Student Days is the perfect opportunity to really explore what we have to offer and see our campuses in action. We encourage you to take the short ride to visit all 3 of our campuses in Hamden and North Haven.

Mount Carmel Campus

The Mount Carmel Campus is where you'll find your new home away from home. The picturesque quad at the foothills of the Sleeping Giant State Park is where many students first fall in love with our university. The sprawling lawns lead to the Carl Hansen Student Center, our network of academic classroom buildings and the 600-seat Arnold Bernhard Library.

Admitted Student Days 2019

Picture yourself here

Last year, admitted members of the Class of 2023 had the opportunity to get to know Quinnipiac better during Admitted Student Days. 

From meeting with students, faculty and deans to campus tours, students and their families experienced what it means to be part of the Quinnipiac community.
