he quad is brimming today with excited students and faculty experiencing that yearly sense of renewal that comes with the start of classes. Two weeks ago, the brick paths connecting our academic buildings were less traveled, presenting a perfect opportunity for President Judy Olian to see the university through the eyes of two seniors who accompanied her on a tour of the Mount Carmel Campus.
Shannon Cardoza ’19 and Ryan Cuttitta ’19 had the opportunity to spend a morning with their new president. They conversed candidly about Quinnipiac, sharing their experiences and highlighting issues important to them. Getting to know members of the community and to experience Quinnipiac’s culture is important to Olian.
For nearly two hours, Olian and the two students strolled across the quad and through the Carl Hansen Student Center, with stops at the Piazza, the bookstore, Tator Hall, the Center for Communications and Engineering, the Commons Bridge and the Arnold Bernhard Library.
