Drinking is the most popular activity. Dont see much drug use--I don't hang with this crowd

All of the dorms on campus are fairly old except for one building, so they are pretty run down. All of the buildings are close so it doesn't take much time to get from one side of the campus to the other. The food here isn't great so I recommend choosing the lowest food plan and buying your own food if at all possible. There isn't a lot of students so campus is pretty low key; there isn't a whole lot that goes on around campus.

The transportation between main campus and north campus is really good. There are buses that run constantly throughout the day every 10-15 minutes so they make it easy to get to classes. Sometimes the bus breaks down though or the driver has to take a break so students have to wait longer and it can cause an issue sometimes. These buses are just for students so there are no other stops except main and north campus. There is also a public bus stop on campus that will take you around town if need be.

If you get caught underage drinking you can get in a lot trouble especially if you are involved in sports. The RA's do regular checks to make sure there is nothing going on that is not supposed to be. You have punishments for minor infractions of the rule book as well where you have to write papers explaining why the behavior was inappropriate, and punishments increase for actions like drinking underage.

Greek life doesn't have a big influence in our school. I don't ever hear about Greek life doing much around campus; there isn't very many students in our fraternities or sororities, but the people I know that are in them are very nice. I know that our Greek life is always looking for more people to join.

Cafeteria is ok most days. Hawks nest good option.
College Sophomore 2013-08-13T20:49:58Z
Lots of on campus activities sponsored by athletics, sorority, frats, etc. House parties are usually happening every where.

I feel Quincy University does have a really good business program. The professors have actual experience in the workforce so you get more than the behind the desk view on business. I am also a ASL interpreting major. I found the professors to be very knowledgeable and really push you to learn, which is excellent because there is so much to learn in ASL. If I had to do it over again I would have started my double major sooner than adding it junior year. I am not concerned about finding a job. I will have two majors in completely different fields and two minors, one non-relating, and the other relating. I am really looking forward to the career options I will have.

We have two sororities, one fraternity, with several academic and honorary fraternities as well. We have tons of sports and clubs. There is almost always something going on. Meetings are held every night. Events are happening every weekend. We also have a great policy of creating your own clubs and such. We just had a few people start a Creativity Club and a Paint Ball Club. If we don't already have it, all you have to do is get a group of people who want to do it and sign them up!

Health & Safety:
Our security is everywhere. They are at every event, patrol every day and night, stop by every party, and take care of everything they need to. I feel extremely safe on campus. We recently just put in new locks for our dorms where a magnetic strip in our student ID allows us access instead of having extra keys. It has really cut down on people borrowing keys and others losing them and all around keeping us way safer.

We have an integrated nursing program with the local hospital. Our music department is renovating for a brand new recording and producing studio. Our theater department is offering student writers changes to perform their own work. Our Business degree is great. We have a great school community. We are one of few schools in the area to have a Kappa Kappa Psi (the Honorary Band Fraternity) chapter.

We have people who offer great deals for students. The houses are on the same block as the school or at least walking distance. It is a safe neighborhood surrounding schools and churches. The houses are definitely worth the price. They are cheaper than living on campus and students can still use their meal plans if they want to eat on campus. It is actually pretty easy to find a house or at least a room near campus to rent.
College Sophomore 2013-05-10T01:42:10Z
everything is within walking distance and there are numerous people to help you if you have questions. also the quincy university website has most of the information you will ever need.
College Sophomore 2013-05-10T01:30:54Z
They have buses all the time to get you from place to place.

The food midly scanty, and somewhat expensive. The only good option is the cafeteria food, but even that becomes a matter of selective shopping for what is on the menu that day. I was altogether not impressed by the on-campus food options. The two main places are either expensive, crowded, or just plain not appealing on most days.

Quincy is very rich in dining options. Maybe too rich. There are a lot of chain restaurants, and some smaller individually operated eateries. Whatever your taste may be, it won't be difficult to find a good place to eat. If nothing else, and your on a budget, there are a lot of cheaper grocery stores for those seeking to save on coupons or eating at home.

Health & Safety:
The campus security were sufficient. Luckily, our town was small enough so as to not give unsafe feelings or lots of crime. The crime rate on campus was low, with little to no thefts or burglaries, and even fewer violent crimes.

The university seeks incoming students from around the country and internationally. Mainly we see a lot of people from either Chicago, St. Louis, and from the area. We have a few people from outside the country. Even though it is a catholic university, not everyone follows the Catholic religion, but most people are from teh Christian religion
College Sophomore 2013-04-30T22:49:52Z
Quincy provides diverse choices for dining. Resurants and fast food chains are always opening, and there are plenty of small, local resturants.

Majoring in sciences, chemistry and biology in my case, takes a lot of effort. However, Quincy University provides many opportunities for outside help. Tutoring, study sessions, and review sessions are a courtesy provided for us students.

I always find a parking spot, the permit for parking is free, and you dont really NEED a car, you just will want one to get to Walmart faster than the bus

I maintained a good GPA throughout highschool and only received one scholarship
