Graduating doctor of physical therapy students celebrate major milestone

Doctor of physical therapy students don ugly sweaters after completing their finals

O

ur North Haven Dining Hall was filled with excited third-year physical therapy students donning brightly colored, ugly sweaters. There were happy tears, hearty laughs, enthusiastic cheers and broad smiles as the more than 50 women and men completed their final finals of their academic careers.

For the past seven semesters, the doctoral students rallied around each other at each semester’s end in what has become a beloved tradition.

“It filled me with a greater sense of community because everyone is there for each other — literally,” said Michelle Wendt ‘15, DPT ‘18. “They have become family.”

As Public Safety officers snapped photos, they shared memories of getting to know each other throughout the past their years at Quinnipiac.

The students will present their capstones on Friday before celebrating the holidays with friends and family — and then spreading out throughout the world for their final clinicals in the Spring.

They will rally around each other one final time at Commencement in May.
