First-Year Welcome Receptions

Every summer, Quinnipiac Parents Council members, in conjunction with the Parents and Family Development Team, host First-Year Welcome Receptions exclusively for incoming families. Parents get to hear from current parents as well as ask questions to gain further insight into the QU first-year experience prior to move-in.

Welcome to the Quinnipiac family

Quinnipiac University organizes First-Year Welcome Receptions, hosted by Parents Council members, to celebrate and welcome parents to the Quinnipiac family. This year’s First-Year Welcome Receptions were hosted virtually using the Zoom platform. At these casual, fun and convenient Zoom receptions, parents had the opportunity to meet face-to-face with fellow Quinnipiac host parents, university administrators and other incoming families to prepare for their student’s first-year collegiate experience.
