Parents + Family Weekend

Nearly 2,000 families converged on our three campuses Oct. 9-11, 2015, for the annual Parents and Family Weekend festivities. Among the events open to our students and their families were Bobcats Madness, academic-focused conversations, various athletic games and co-curricular activities.

Parents Council

Parents Council members serve as ambassadors for the Quinnipiac parent community and advance the University through engagement, career development and philanthropic support.

Quinnipiac Parents Fund

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.



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.

Parents Leadership Giving

Quinnipiac University encourages parents to be involved in our community. Parents who make leadership gifts to Quinnipiac can make an immediate impact on the experience of their son or daughter.

Parents Resources

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 Association

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.


Commencement is a time filled with excitement and achievement. The University will hold eight Commencement ceremonies in May 2016, including two ceremonies for graduate students, one ceremony for law students and five undergraduate ceremonies.

Freshman Welcome Receptions

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.
