Quinnipiac University, Hamden, CT
The clock tower is playing a show tune. The Division I Tennis Team is practicing. You look out at the spacious quad and to the adjacent Sleeping Giant Mountain State Park.You are in Quinnipiac’s 250-acre Mount Carmel campus, one of three campuses that make up the university.
The school is best known for health, including physical therapy and nursing; communications, with two radio stations, a TV station, and home to the famous Quinnipiac Polling institute; and business, with the facilities of the Lender School of Business.
Classes are small with an average size of 22. Students are involved in clubs, intramurals, and Division I sports. A small percent participate in Greek life. Students also take advantage of activities in Hamden and New Haven. Juniors and seniors will need a car for travel between the York Hill and Mount Carmel campuses.
