Quinnipiac University is located in Hamden, Connecticut. The school was founded in 1929 under the name Connecticut College of Commerce, but it changed its name in 1951 and moved to its current location in 1966. Judy's interviewer told us that this is the first time in 20 years that there hasn't been construction on its campus.
The afternoon we visited the college was drenched in sunshine, as you can see, but very cold.
Quinnipiac is comprised of three campuses. We only toured the main campus. We did not see the upper classmen apartments and the athletics complex on the York Hill campus or the medical training facilities on the New Haven campus.

Although the campus architecture is quite modern, it was designed in traditional East Coast college fashion. The Library, with its tower, is perhaps the most impressive building on the main campus.
Quinnipiac seemed to have less tradition and history than some of the other schools we've visited, but it was quite impressive in its own way. Though we did not see the Frank H. Netter M.D. School of Medicine campus in New Haven, it too is quite impressive in the opportunities it provides Quinnipiac students.
It might be interesting to note that we have enjoyed all of the schools we've visited and liked them for different reasons. It seems that each of them offers their own unique benefits and sadly, I can see Judy walking the campus of most of them. It will be interesting to see which school she decides to attend.
