Quinnipiac University

Celebrating a Quinnipiac legend

March 02, 2020

Candy on Table

Join us in wishing one of our most beloved alumni, staff members and professors a happy and much-deserved retirement.

David Hall ’70 began his Quinnipiac experience on the same day as the then Quinnipiac College opened its Mount Carmel Campus in October 1966. Over the next half century (sans the two years he went to Boston University for his master’s), he has distributed hundreds of thousands of Q-cards and more than 250,000 pieces of candy — enough, in fact, to extend from the front door of the Arnold Bernhard Library to the front door of the Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences on our North Haven Campus.

He began his time as a Quinnipiac Brave on a campus with just two dorms, a library and an academic building — and has had a front-row seat to six Quinnipiac presidents, the transition from Braves to Bobcats, college to university and D-II to D-I athletics.
