Students who participate in Bobcat Academy are better positioned to succeed in all aspects of the college experience here at Quinnipiac University. Designed for students pursuing any major area of study across our 8 schools and the College of Arts and Sciences, this program is especially beneficial for underrepresented students and first-generation students.
Upon joining Bobcat Academy, students will be assigned a dedicated faculty adviser within their school or college. This faculty adviser will provide one-on-one academic coaching and mentorship throughout the academic year, offering guidance for building successful study habits, selecting courses and adjusting to the expectations of college-level academics.
In addition to academic mentorship from faculty, Bobcat Academy connects students with current students to serve as peer mentors here at Quinnipiac. These peer mentors help students form strong and reliable social connections with students who share similar interests and values, even if they are pursuing a different major, live in a different residence hall or come from a different part of the country.
