Long road for Quinnipiac to Frozen Four

HAMDEN, Conn. — Nestled at the foot of Sleeping Giant State Park, Quinnipiac University is an institution that once could be described as a sleepy little commuter school, with an enrollment of 1,900 students. But it slumbers no more. Quinnipiac is a giant that has been awakened.

“I’ll tell you, we were a sleeping giant when I was inaugurated 26 years ago,’’ said Quinnipiac president John L. Lahey, who has presided over a stunning remake of the school into a thriving, three-campus Division 1 university with an enrollment of 8,500 students and an endowment that has grown from $5 million to $279 million.
