Christina is one of those people who shines from the inside out. Her enthusiasm is contagious. She’s a sophomore at Quinnipiac and what I loved so much is underneath her signature is this quote: “What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?” -Robert Schuller. Love it! Read on for the social lowdown at Quinnipiac.
Secret Study spot: The second floor of the main cafeteria. It’s pretty quiet, there are comfy booths with plenty of space to work and you are really close if you ever need a snack to keep you going!
Late night cravings: Falcon Pizza mozzarella sticks or Insomnia Cookies!
Most fun campus traditions: The first night of the fall semester, all of freshmen meet up at the bobcat statue in the center of campus. It was a great opportunity to meet new people and I made friends there that I am still close with today!
Dorm, Bar or Greek?: QU is definitely a “bar school.”
A typical weekend is….: TOADS…every Saturday. Going to Toad’s Place in New Haven has been a Quinnipiac tradition for years! It’s one of those places that you can’t describe, you have to experience a Toads night to really get it.
How I met my closest friends: My sorority! I am a part of the Iota Mu chapter of Chi Omega. The girls in my chapter are my sisters, my best friends, my motivators, my study partners, my gym buddies, and my roommates!!
Club favorites: Q30 and Panhellenic Council!! Q30 is the student-run TV station on campus and I love being a part of it! I have made so many friends, I’m gaining great experience, and I always know what’s happening on campus because I am an Associate Producer for the Q30 Newscast.
Panhellenic Council is the executive board that helps run all of the Greek Life on campus and this year I am the Vice President of Communications! I get to meet people in all different fraternities and sororities. It’s awesome!
Best study tip: Always check if there are any useful videos, study guides or pre-made quizlets online before you get started. You never know, what you find could save you a lot of time and work!
Best cup of coffee can be found: I call New England “the land of Dunkin’ Donuts” because it feels like there is a Dunkin’ on every corner. BUT the best cup of coffee definitely is Cheshire Coffee.
Favorite discovery on campus/off campus: All of the different views from the Sleeping Giant State Park that is across the street from campus.

When I missed my family the most/how I got over it: I miss my family the most when I can’t find anything good to eat in the cafeteria. Kidding! (kind of kidding) I usually call my parents and try to catch up with my brother as often as I can.
Skype or FaceTime: FaceTime for sure!
Last time I did laundry: A week ago? Maybe??
Dorm advice: Be the roommate that you would want to have! Also, don’t be afraid to “go random” for your freshman year! I went random, and my roommates ended up being my best friends!
We’ve covered a whole lot of schools over the past year and have more coming! Stay posted.
