Students and the value of their degrees were at the heart of every decision John L. Lahey has made in his 31 years at the helm of Quinnipiac. With the remarkable growth he helped engineer, he will retire in June satisfied that he fulfilled his mission to bring national prominence to a small local college.
Students and alumni love Quinnipiac’s accelerated dual-degree programs that offer an innovative, cost-effective way to earn a bachelor’s degree in three years and a master’s degree in one year and stay ahead of the job-market curve.
Sick and Tired
Carol Sirot has suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome for most of her life. She knows the condition can be difficult to diagnose and treat. Her generous gift will contribute to the body of knowledge about CFS and raise awareness of it among health sciences and medical students.
Everybody procrastinates sometimes, but when it becomes an individual’s work ethic of choice, trouble often follows, whether it’s failed classes or being fired. In fact, the habit is so pervasive that behavioral science has identified six different categories of procrastinators. The good news — they can all be cured!
The cultural and global engagement programs at Quinnipiac are rich with learning opportunities in homes, schools, clinical settings and businesses. During the trips, community-based relationships are built with laughter, tears and trust, a commitment that gives students and faculty a chance to connect with families in Nicaragua, Guatemala, Barbados, the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.
