Office of Student Affairs Mission Statement:

The mission of the Quincy University Office of Student Affairs, in support of the University mission, is to create an environment in the Catholic Franciscan tradition that promotes the holistic development of the student.

The Office of Student Affairs will provide programs that increase self-awareness and direction, personal development and wellness, social responsibly and empowerment, ability to function in a global society and support the academic success of each student.

Feel at Home

You'll feel at home in a community that welcomes QU students. Easy to navigate and incredibly friendly, Quincy (pop. 41,000) features the advantages of a large metropolitan area and the convenience of a small town.

Student Diversity

QU welcomes more than 1,200 students representing 26 states and six foreign countries. Slightly more than half are female. Our students come from small towns and large cities.

Get Involved

Participate in Hawk Wild Days, The Gauntlet, music and theatre productions, and intramurals! Join a fraternity or sorority, the Student Programming Board or any one of our 30+ clubs. When it comes to getting involved, you'll find unlimited opportunities and support starting your freshman year!

Lend a Hand

Quincy University students serve and respect those in need. They devote many hours to community service each year; building houses, serving in soup kitchens, tutoring children and visiting the elderly.
