The centerpiece of Quinnipiac, our campus quad, is quiet on a summer morning. But this image doesn't reflect the flurry of activity in the undergraduate admissions office. We have welcomed hundreds of prospective students and their families for information sessions, campus tours and individual interviews since spring. If you haven't had a chance to visit us yet, the month of August is a perfect time to come and learn more about our three campus settings, as well as the admissions process and financial aid! Detailed schedules can be found here.
The Common Application opened on August 1 and is now available to college-bound high school seniors who want to get a jump on the admission process. We look forward to receiving applications from those who aspire to become members of the QU Bobcat Nation. It's not too early to apply now!
There have been some exciting changes at Quinnipiac this summer!
On July 1, Quinnipiac officially added our sixth academic school within the university. Dr. Justin Kile, was appointed Dean of the School of Engineering. Dean Kile and the engineering faculty have accomplished a great deal in the past four years. The school's first class of engineering majors graduated in May 2016. The department is now fully immersed in the formal ABET accreditation process, which will be complete by the fall of 2017.
Our virtual campus tour now includes 360-degree panoramas of many of the new Engineering labs and classrooms. Access the virtual tour here. (Select the Mt. Carmel campus tour, and click on the Center for Communications and Engineering tour stop to view the facilities.)
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions welcomes Greg Eichhorn, Associate Vice President for Admissions and Financial Aid. Greg has an extensive background in higher education most recently as Vice President for Enrollment Management and Dean at Albright College in Reading, PA.
Greg is looking forward to meeting many of our prospective students and their families in the coming months and getting to know the QU campus community. As a self-professed "foodie" Greg is also looking forward to sampling the many fine restaurants in the Greater New Haven area.
Our admissions counselors are hard at work setting up their fall travel schedules. They will be visiting many high schools and participating in college fairs across the U.S. and abroad.
Register now for one of our fall Open House events being held on the following Saturdays: September 24, October 22, November 12 and December 3.
We look forward to welcoming our new and returning students to campus in just three weeks. In the meantime, a sunny summer to all!
