Go to your corporate HR rep and ask what a Quinnipac degree can do for you.
This doesn't even take into account getting a degree in basket weaving or athletic taping strategies as majors.
The CHL is your best shot at making hockey a career. The NCAA is the more conservative attempt at the same thing.
Just because you haven't heard of it doesn't make it a bad school. Yeah, some are regional schools. But 'generic giant state U's are generally the ones that are going to be inflating grades for athletes, and while they have the name because of national sports coverage, they're not always the best schools.
The name on the degree won't get you much anyway, unless it's an elite school, regardless of if it's Michigan or Quinnipiaic. And those elite universities? Harvard and Yale have pretty good hockey programs.
