What our Graduates Say About Quinnipiac
Kelly Samselski Massucci '98 says Quinnipiac's small class sizes and personal attention from the faculty helped her in her bid to open her own pediatric OT center. Massucci is the owner of The Talcott Center For Child Development in Farmington, Conn. "The program was very comprehensive; it gave us a great deal of experience in the actual field and I found the instructors were very motivating and encouraging," said Massucci. "We had a lot of lab-based groups and a lot of on-site fieldwork with smaller groups, and we had more personalized attention there."
Suzi Humen '95 says many of her professors had their own businesses, which inspired her to follow suit. "I said, 'One day, I'm going to be just like that--I'm going to have my own office,' " Humen said, owner of Lymphatics Plus, which has offices in Boca Raton, Hallandale Beach and Sunny Isles Beach, Fla. "It was definitely a stepping stone for me to see that they could do it, that they could be successful in that business and be a professor."
