The campus is in a rural area, but both the campus and the law building are sleek and modern. The campus is directly across from a a beautiful state park. Hamden is pretty small, but New Haven is just 15 minutes away. New Haven is a pretty cool mid sized city with theatre, music, and the such (Yale Law School). There are also other mid sized towns near-by with available housing. They don't have on campus housing and their is not much (if any) within walking distance, so you will be commuting. I visited it twice and really liked it. Heading there in the fall (I hope that the traditional negative posters can refrain from criticizing my decision- though I'm not holding my breath).
I've only explored the area on google maps and street view but I really like what I see. I love the idea of living in a semi-rural area but with access to nyc and boston. I really wish I could visit Quinnipiac. Do you have any other information on the area? What is the school itself like? Are the people nice?
Everyone I met was real nice. The low student to teacher ratio (10:1) is emphasized a lot and the professors I met seemed pretty cool. I only met a couple of students, but it seemed like a nice crowd. Not sure what else to tell ya, but if you have specific questions I can try to help.
There is a train station in New Haven that can get you to NYC in under 2 hours and Boston is about the same in a car, so that's pretty cool.
