16 Things Every Quinnipiac Freshman Needs To Do Before Summer

The ultimate QU freshman bucket list

16 Things Every Quinnipiac Freshman Needs To Do Before Summer

No matter where anyone goes to school, every college student has a freshman bucket list. Where I attend school, at Quinnipiac University, this is our bucket list... I know I want to check off everything on my bucket list, will you?

1. ABL

No matter what season, take a picture of the beautiful and famous Arnold Bernard Library on the Quad!

2. Involvement Fair

Going to the fair because it's like Christmas with so many free gifts!

3. Sleeping Giant

That hiking trail across the street that everyone talks about...go do it. Sleeping Giant State Park is a place you won't regret hiking.

4. Hockey games

Go for a fun Friday/Saturday night at the T.D. Bank Center and enjoy some exciting hockey by our Bobcats!



6. Talk to Java John

If he calls you by your first name without looking at your QCard than you know you're officially best friends...

7. Hep Creek

The gross looking pond behind Dana, Irma, Larson, and Perlroth is that gross lake at least one freshman ends up jumping in for some strange reason...

8. Chill on the Quad

Sitting on the Quad's grass during the fall or spring, is a freshman must.

9. Go sledding

Go sledding! But not your average snow day.... use the top of trash cans or better yet, trays from the cafeteria!

10. Toads

The place where every freshman goes wild...and sophomore, junior and senior...

11. All the pizza

What's better than a 2 a.m. call to Dominos, Tonino's, or maybe even Falcon/ Bobcat Pizza... YUM!

12. Saturday Night Shuttles

Every freshman needs to experience the shuttles to or from Toads at least once... You will never want to breathe on the shuttle again.

13. Greek Life/ clubs

Whether it is a sorority/ fraternity, the TV station at school, newspaper, SGA, Spanish club, yearbook, dance team or pep band getting involved at QU is tons of fun!

14. Ray and Mike's

Like Subway but 100,000 times better!!!! This is a must go!

15. Eli's on Whitney

The best place to eat on Whitney Av., right by school!

16. NYC/ Boston

Take a day trip with friends to NYC or Boston which is only an hour and a half away!

Hope all you freshman like me at Quinnipiac are enjoying every minute. Freshman year is sadly flying by too fast!

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
