Welcome letter to the Class of 2027

Hey there, future Bobcats! Congratulations on choosing Quinnipiac University, you are officially a student at the University of the Future.

As a Quinnipiac student, you will soon realize the great things our students and community achieve together, which brings a tremendous amount of pride. I stepped onto our beautiful campus in Hamden, Connecticut, about two years ago, and I knew right away I had found my new home.

My name is Jake Cedor, and I’m a 3+1 international business major and economics minor from Rhode Island. I am proud to have an opportunity to serve as your President of our Student Government Association at Quinnipiac next year, representing our spirited student community in a multitude of ways.

As you continue your educational journey throughout the next four years, you and thousands of other students will share many incredible experiences together. The past two years have truly been the greatest of my life so far, and they absolutely have gone by too fast. Therefore, I encourage you all to get involved at Quinnipiac as early as possible to avoid missing out on some amazing opportunities. Whether you decide to join the Student Government Association as I did or participate in the multitude of other clubs and organizations offered here, I can assure you it will be worth it!

Quinnipiac has every opportunity I could have ever imagined, with a wide range of ways to get involved including Fraternity & Sorority Life, club sports, philanthropic organizations like the 1929 Fund, Religious Life, Student Programming Board, Multicultural Student Leadership Council, Community Action Project and over 145 other student-led organizations on campus. Regardless of what organizations you choose to join, be sure to participate in our big on-campus events such as hockey games, Wake the Giant, Big Event and QTHON, as they are all amazing ways to meet and spend time with friends. No matter who you are or where you come from, there is an organization here for you. And if you can't find one, why not start your own? Our Department of Campus Life offers excellent resources for students who are interested in starting a new organization on campus.

Lastly, remember it's okay to feel comfortably uncomfortable. Push yourself out of your comfort zone when you arrive here, and you may discover a new hobby or passion that you never knew existed. This is the perfect opportunity to try new things and achieve great accomplishments. Everyone feels a bit nervous, anxious and scared when they first arrive on campus - I know I was - but keep in mind this is normal and will pass as you get involved and make new friends. I am thrilled to witness what you will achieve during your time at Quinnipiac and can't wait to meet you all next fall. Know my door is always open, so if you ever want to drop in and say hello, please swing by our SGA suite on the second floor of the Carl Hansen Student Center.

Have a wonderful summer and Go Bobcats!
