Quinnipiac is where professors who want to know students by name come to teach, and where students who want a personal, challenging education come to learn. 

At Quinnipiac, students are our first, second and third priorities. What does that look like? Our faculty and staff look to engage students in examining their educational goals and identifying the learning outcomes that are important. Our Learning Paradigm emphasizes the intellectual and interpersonal outcomes of your education. Quinnipiac is a medium-size university offering big opportunities.

You'll find top-rated academic programs, classes averaging 25 students and a faculty-to-student ratio of 16 to 1-plus Division I athletics. Those are just some of the reasons why Quinnipiac is consistently ranked among the best universities offering undergraduate and master's degree programs by U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review. In our hands, technology offers amazing hands-on experiences.

All three campuses are wireless and students receive tech support at the technology center in the Library. Students simulate buying and selling stocks in the Terry W. Goodwin '67 Financial Technology Center, produce news packages in the fully digital high-definition broadcast studio, study how the human body moves in the motion analysis laboratory, and the Sim labs offer lifelike situations for those studying healthcare.
