Quinn is an alumna of William McKinley High School where she was captain of the Cheerios cheerleading squad, president of The Celibacy Club and member of both New Directions and The God Squad. Quinn was also in the prom court in both her junior and senior year, and was the most popular girl in school. She is now a student of Yale University as of her graduation in Goodbye, the twenty-second and final episode of Season Three.
Quinn was dating Finn Hudson at the start of the series, though it was revealed that she lost her virginity during a one-night-stand with Puck after she said she felt "fat" and he got her drunk on wine coolers. She became pregnant with his child Beth, and told Finn that the baby was his. Quinn was happy after giving birth to her lovely baby girl Beth in the Season One finale, but she gave her up for adoption. She was introduced as one of the main antagonists; but throughout the season, Quinn changed her bad attitude. Rachel was competing with Quinn to win Finn's heart, but when he discovered the truth about her baby, he left her and started dating Rachel. She later started a relationship with Puck, but broke up during the summer.
In Season Two, she began a relationship with Sam, which later ended when she cheated on him with Finn. Quinn later marked her relationship with Finn public in order to promote themselves to be Prom King and Queen. Her mean attitude started to return when she realized that Rachel still loved Finn. He broke their relationship off when he told her that he still loved Rachel too. Quinn tried to get revenge on them, but Santana and Brittany helped her to get over it.
She comes back in the third season as one of The Skanks, with new friends and an attitude, but she goes back to her old look and rejoins New Directions in order to get Beth back at any cost. She later realizes that if she wants Beth safe, Beth has to stay with Shelby, Beth's adoptive mother. Quinn rejoins the Cheerios, but then gets in a major car crash while texting Rachel in the episode On My Way, leaving her paralyzed from the waist down.

While talking with Sam, Mercedes mentions Quinn along with all of Sam's other girlfriends.
Quinn is first mentioned by Tina that why isn't she in New York to support Rachel for her Broadway Opening Night. Later, Kurt tells Rachel that Quinn sent some flowers praising her for her show.
PersonalityWhen first introduced, Quinn is the ultimate snarky mean girl. Popular, beautiful, and a complete snob, she is admired by every single boy in the school (not to mention everyone else). Quinn makes certain that everyone around her knows who is top dog. She feels that being popular is the most important thing and as a cheerleader, she constantly goes out of her way to demean those who she doesn't like - willing to do whatever she can to demonstrate her superiority. Furthermore, as president of the Celibacy Club, Quinn is originally an extreme borderline Bible-thumper, preaching her faith at random periods.
Aside from being cold and judgmental, Quinn is also extremely manipulative. She views anyone and everyone as a potential enemy or pawn to be used. Willing to lie and cheat, Quinn will do anything and everything she can to make sure that things worked out in her favor, no matter how they affected others - she went so far as to convince Finn that he was the father of her baby. Quinn is also very petty and easily angered by jealousy, and would do anything she can to exact revenge.
At home, meanwhile, Quinn plays the role of "Daddy's Little Girl," always being as sweet and polite as possible, and doing everything she could to hide from her WASP parents all the 'sinful' things she might be doing. After discovering that she is pregnant, however, Quinn begins her transformation, thanks, in large part, to the support from the Glee Club. Initially unwilling to trust them, she sees this as an opportunity to abuse their open and loving nature. She admits to loving the glee club; however her obsession with popularity almost forces her to leave glee in order to be with the Cheerios. However, she spends more and more time with glee and for the first time deservedly faces struggles of her own as when she finds herself a social outcast due to her pregnancy.
It is also shown that Quinn used to be the same type of person she regularly teases. Before eighth grade, she went by Lucy, was overweight, and a brunette. The other children called her Lucy Caboosey. Quinn takes up ballet, gymnastics, and cheerleading to help lose weight. When her father was transferred to Lima and got a raise, Quinn asked her father for a nose job, and then dyed her hair blonde, and asked her parents to refer to her by her middle name; Quinn. She still seems to enjoy bullying Rachel, but she does not seem to go out of her way to bully anyone else. In fact, she seems more empathic towards those who are bullied such as Sam, due to the fact she remembers vividly how it feels. She seems more intent on coming to terms with her prior life, and wants to rebuild herself. This has caused her to be reluctant to start a relationship with Sam, for fear for falling back into old habits regarding men. Quinn is forced to act more aggressively than before, due to her continued rivalry with Santana. Her personality has become meaner after her transformation. In the last episode of Season 2, Quinn has a breakdown, crying that she just wanted someone to love her.
Between the summer of 11 and 12th grade, Quinn begins to spend time with an all-girl group of delinquent girls called "The Skanks." As she joins "The Skanks," Quinn starts smoking and changes her image by dying her hair hot pink, getting a tramp-stamp of Ryan Seacrest's face and piercing her nose. She also starts dating a 40-year-old skateboard dude and quits New Directions. When Santana, Brittany, and later Rachel talk to her about it, she explains that she's hated being "under pressure" and also reveals in a voice-over she is "never going back." However, in the last scene of The Purple Piano Project, she sadly watches from the shadows as the Glee Club perform. In I Am Unicorn, she returns to her normal appearance because she wants to get Beth back. After she tricks Shelby by making her look like an unfit mother, she realizes that Beth is better protected with her Shelby. When she gets into a car crash in On My Way, she becomes paralyzed and uses a wheelchair for a period of short term. She recovers throughout the season and can walk again in Prom-asaurus, but she deceives everyone by telling them that she is still in the wheelchair, so she can get more votes to be the prom queen. When she discovers that she won the election, she changes the votes and makes Rachel win prom queen, because she thinks that she has to do something good before she graduates. She stands up of the wheelchair, when she sings Take My Breath Away with Santana in the same episode. She graduates in Goodbye and goes to the Yale University. In Thanksgiving she seems back to her old manners since she's trying to protect Kitty and slaps Santana in the same episode. During I Do she hooks up with Santana twice. In 100 Quinn is shown to be lying about her past in order to to present herself in a certain way to her new boyfriend, Biff McIntosh. With the help of Puck she learns to accept her past and breaks up wiith Biff to start a relationship with Puck, realizing she still loves him.

In season three, Joe and Quinn join The God Squad in the same episode (Quinn rejoined). After Joe tells the other members about himself, Quinn calls him "Teen Jesus." Although, Quinn and Joe don't seem to be attracted to each other in Heart, they sing love songs together, Stereo Hearts and Cherish/Cherish, with The God Squad.

Later, she tells him that she admires him. She introduces him to New Directions and he ends up joining. Joe accompanies her to physical therapy throughout her time in her wheelchair. In Dance With Somebody they sing Saving All My Love For You in front of New Directions. During the song, while he is helping her stretch, Joe leans in to kiss Quinn, but then he pulls away, concerned because of his faith. They later reveal that they have feelings for each other, and Joe asks Quinn if she wants him to go against his faith to be with her. She says no, because she likes the idea that there's something that can't be lost. They stay platonic friends, and Quinn calls their special connection "something new." It is believed that their relationship has ended as crushes due to the fact that Quinn went to Yale and Joe hasn't mentioned her or their relationship in Season 4.
In the episode Thanksgiving, it is revealed that Quinn is dating a professor that works at Yale. Quinn has been to Jodie Foster's campaign with the Psych Professor. He is 35 years old and is married.
