About Quinnipiac University
The University was founded in New Haven in 1929 with an emphasis on business, was known as the Connecticut College of Commerce until it changed its name in 1951 to Quinnipiac College. Soon thereafter, having outgrown its New Haven surroundings, the school moved to its 250-acre Mount Carmel Campus in Hamden, Connecticut, 90 minutes north of New York City, two hours from Boston and eight miles from metropolitan New Haven.
In 2000, the name Quinnipiac University was adopted to better reflect the quality and diversity of the school?s programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Over the years, Quinnipiac has experienced dramatic and steady growth. Its nine schools offer programs in business, communications, education, engineering, health sciences, law, medicine, nursing and the arts and sciences and it is among only 2.1 percent of all U.S. universities with a medical school and a law school.
Over the past 20 years, Quinnipiac has expanded to three campuses in south-eastern Connecticut and 21 athletic programs in Division I. It is home to the Quinnipiac University Poll, widely viewed as the gold standard in national and state-wide polling.
The Mount Carmel Campus, next to Sleeping Giant State Park, contains academic buildings and residence halls. The nearby 250-acre York Hill Campus houses the People?s United Center, residence halls for 2,000 students, and the Rocky Top Student Center. A third 150-acre campus in North Haven serves as home to the School of Education, School of Health Sciences, School of Law, School of Nursing, the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine, and other graduate programs.
Quinnipiac is recognized by U.S. News & World Report and Princeton Review?s ?The Best 385 Colleges.? The Chronicle of Higher Education has named Quinnipiac among the ?Great Colleges to Work For.?
