What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sacred Heart University is the definition of 'home away from home'. I have wandered campus at all hours of the day and night and have always felt more than safe. The teachers are exceptional. I haven't had a teacher that isn't willing to help me beyond the classroom. Everyone on campus is welcoming and there are endless opportunities to involve yourself with the community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am an online masters nursing student and couldn’t be more disappointed in the lack of communication this school has with me considering all the money I pay them. It’s a regret I am there for certain. Save your money, go elsewhere. I have been in education for years, and this is quite possible the worst experience I’ve had.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Going to Sacred Heart University was the best decision I have ever made. The professors are out of this world, and strive to make sure each and every one of their students understands the course material. Professors always offer to extend office hours and review sessions, which shows their level of dedication in and out of the classroom. The students are nothing short of unique. Every student is involved in some way on campus, whether it be a Division I sport, Greek Life, or in community service. Involvement on this campus is huge and I think it is what makes Sacred Heart so much more incredible than other universities. Lastly, Sacred Heart University's career office is state of the art. Advisers do their very best to help students form resumes, find internships, and submit perfect job applications. Sacred Heart University truly sets each and every student up for success, and will always be known as the place that changed my life tremendously.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is an amazing school! The atmosphere is great! The school is big on community service! Sacred Heart has great arts programs and sports! The food is great! They have a brand new diner on campus everyone loves. The class sizes are small! Overall, you can see if you think the SHU fits for you then come to SHU!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really liked the way that the Sacred Heart University teaches us to be a great profissional in our area, but I think they need to improve the interaction between the students and also improve its relationship with the international students, because the university give no attention to that type of student, and the international student need its atention because their families are so far away, so they miss this presence on their lifes, so i think the school should give more attention to this type of student, because they dont know anyone here and until get into the community here, they need the attention of the school to enter in the place of that.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's an overall somewhat good school. They lack diversity and overall student inclusiveness. And some of the professors could really use some work on how to teach students. They just need to get their priorities in order and let students have more freedom when it comes to academics.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Before going to Sacred Heart, I knew that because of the rigorous program that I am in I would have to work hard to get the grades I want. Classes are hard, but if you came into college as a nursing major thinking it would be easy... you are so wrong. However, I was extremely lucky to have amazing professors my freshman year who would always be available via email or even text to answer my questions. Not only do teachers help you succeed, but I cannot stress enough how important it is to find people in your major to be friends with. They will understand your struggle and you both will push each other! Girls don't really need to join a sorority unless you want more friends and pay as much as $1000 per year, but guys should join a frat.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Sacred Heart University is that it's a home away from home. When first touring SHU I was extremely nervous that it was going to be a University full of higher end kids from the Fairfield area. However, I was extremely mistaken right away as there is a huge variety of kids at this school. Everyone is friendly and has great manners someone will always hold the door open for you and you'll always see a recognizable face in the halls. This is one of the many comforting factors I love about the school. Some may feel that they won't fit in at this school, but there's plenty of groups to get involved in that welcome you with open arms. When it comes to class they are the perfect size especially for discussions and professors being personable. SHU also offers a variety of of centers to help with school work and you can always find students in the library willing to help one another. If I had to go back and choose colleges over again I wouldn't change my decision by choosing Sacred Heart University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Sacred Heart is a place where you definitely feel like family from your first week. It is so easy to get involved in clubs and activities so making friends with similar interests is pretty simple. Also, as a nursing major, I could not have asked for better preparation than this school has given me. So happy I chose SHU!
