e are proud to help our students build a strong foundation for their future success.

Take Angie King ’17. The media studies major and management minor has made the most of her Quinnipiac education — in the classroom as highest GPA and Overall Achievement Award recipient in the School of Communications; on the field as the field hockey co-captain and season MVP; and around the world as an international service learning scholar.


“My Quinnipiac experience has been so special because of the opportunities it has given me outside of the classroom,” she said. “I have been so fortunate to travel to Bali, Indonesia through an international immersion course; South Africa to visit a teammate and Europe during my senior spring. Quinnipiac has set me up for success to not only be successful in the classroom, but to also be an experienced traveler and global citizen.”

Story Continues

During her time in #BobcatNation, she interned at Brightmark Consulting — which works with clients including General Electric, Snapple, Deloitte and IBM — near the Connecticut-New York line where she did market research and managed several social media accounts.

“The media studies classes prepared me to conduct market research, trend analysis and client proposals,” she said of the market-driven knowledge she developed. “I love having professors who are passionate about what they teach and that is what I have seen from every single media studies professor. It’s hard not to be passionate about the media industry when you are surrounded by these professors.”

Our professors are a leading reason why we’re proud to have a 90 percent first- to second-year retention rate — a full 22 percent higher than comparable schools nationwide.
