Parents & Families

First-Year Welcome Receptions

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

Welcome to the Quinnipiac family

Quinnipiac organizes First-Year Welcome Receptions, hosted by Parents Council members, to celebrate and welcome parents to the Quinnipiac family. At these casual, fun and convenient receptions, parents will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with fellow Quinnipiac host parents, university administrators and other incoming families.

This year’s First-Year Welcome Receptions are hosted virtually using the Zoom platform. Show your Bobcat spirit; wear your blue and gold or QU gear while you share and prepare for your student’s first year at Quinnipiac. 

Upcoming events will be announced.
