Parents play an important role in the lives of their children. We want to assist you in getting comfortable with the Quinnipiac community during your student's years here.
Parents Council members serve as ambassadors for the Quinnipiac parent community and advance the University through engagement, career development and philanthropic support.
Gifts to the Quinnipiac Parents Fund support high-impact educational and developmental programs that benefit current students. Your philanthropic support helps to ensure that students continue to reach their academic dreams through the quality educational experience that Quinnipiac offers.
From the day your daughter or son enrolls, you are a valued member of our community. As a parent of a Quinnipiac student you are automatically a member of the Quinnipiac Parents Association, connecting you to campus life and planning.
Quinnipiac University encourages parents to be involved in our community. Parents who give to Quinnipiac can make an immediate impact on their son or daughter’s experience.
In preparation for the upcoming fall semester, please come visit with other freshman families in your area. Special guests will include members of Quinnipiac University's academic leadership team and current upperclassmen who will share insights from the University.
Thousands of parents visit campus each year for Parents + Family Weekend. The weekend provides the opportunity for parents to catch up with students, check in with faculty and deans and enjoy the peak foliage on Sleeping Giant Mountain.
The Orientation program is designed to help your son or daughter make a successful transition to Quinnipiac and college life. Orientation is held each year in June.
Commencement is a time filled with excitement and achievement. The University held six Commencement ceremonies in May 2015, including two ceremonies for graduate students, one ceremony for law students and three undergraduate ceremonies.
