Central Connecticut State University Campus Tour  $40
Pre-registration required

Please join us as we visit the Blue Chip card office located in the newly renovated Willard-DiLoreto hall. This building houses most student services found on campus and has a large central atrium.  From there we will walk across our tree-filled campus to the Student Center to visit our largest retail dining location. This dining area was remodeled during the summer of 2017. Part of the remodeling process involved the removal of cash registers at each food concept. They were replaced with a kiosk ordering system that integrates into our point of sales system. From there we will head over to the campus bookstore at the other end of the Student Center. Finally, time permitting, we will visit Burritt library and the Starbucks located there.

You’ll begin the day with a tour of ASSA ABLOY’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities, test labs and Innovation Showroom, and then take a short bus ride to Quinnipiac to see how these concepts have been put into practice on their campus.

Quinnipiac University enrolls 7,000 full-time undergraduate and 3,000 graduate and part-time students in 110 degree programs through its Schools of Business, Communications, Education, Engineering, Health Sciences, Law, Medicine, Nursing and the College of Arts and Sciences.
