The annual New Play Festival immerses theater majors in a series of workshops and experiences dedicated to all facets of theater production, from acting to design and tech, producing and stage management. The workshops, run by seasoned professionals from The Barrow Group Theatre Company, culminate in professionally produced, student written and directed plays performed on The Barrow Group's Main Stage Theater, just steps from Times Square.
The Inside-Out Prison Exchange, an initiative of the campus-wide Prison Project, allows Quinnipiac students (outside students) behind the walls of a correctional facility to take college-level courses alongside current inmates (inside students). All participants involved study as peers and are regarded as equals. This community-based learning experience gives students first-hand perspective on punishment, deterrence and rehabilitation, and challenges them to examine such issues through the lense of social class, identity and social structure.
