What is your overall opinion of this school?

Way too overhyped. Most of the staff are rude here, especially the cooks and pub safety. Professors are really hit or miss, they’ll either be the best and help or they’ll just be petty and yell at you for asking questions. Safety has been really questionable here lately. Public safety cares more about ticketing cars and busting kids with alcohol, pretty much glorified mall cops whole will flex their authority on you at any chance. Also if you’re a female there’s a high chance you get sexually harassed by a pub safety guard. Food is alright, dinning halls are packed because they accept way too many people for what they have which also makes housing a pain. Res life is a joke and run by idiots and hire idiot RA’s typically who will flex their authority. Parties are alright, typically some on the weekend but unless you’re in a club, sport or a female you prob aren’t getting in. Plus the school goes out of the way to get the cops to stop the parties. And the worst of all is there is never ever any parking, the school knows this but does nothing so they can get their parking ticket money. A lot to be desired but I guess it could be worse.

Overall, SHU has been great to me! There are many academic choices via different college campuses. The professors are always there to engage with students. They listen and actually care about our opinions. And they’re expanding the campus for more great resources and dorms!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great school, the overall appearance of the school is a modern clean architectural style. It is constantly growing with new buildings added each year, while still staying true to the small private school feel. Its Catholic community has a welcoming presence while also not too overwhelming so that students of all backgrounds can enjoy and embrace all the university has to offer. It is a school with tremendous opportunity for all regardless of major, all professors are dedicated and reliable in teaching students, the necessities to succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a inviting, fun and friendly campus. It is small enough that you see a lot of the same friendly faces. There are always events for students and lots of opportunities to get involved. Sacred Heart is a very clean and well kept campus and all of the facilities are fairly new and modern, making the transition as a freshman a little bit easier. Overall, I would recommend this campus to anyone that is interested.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a small school, but with a big heart! Being involved in clubs or sports teams plays a big role in our social lives here. Even being there as a work study, my co-workers are my best friends, even though there a bit older than me! Although I'm only a rising sophomore, I have made so many friends who share common interests with me, and I can confidently say that within the two semesters we've known each other, we got each other's backs. Looking into the classrooms, the professors are really passionate about their courses, and inspire us everyday to do better. I know that from my anatomy professor, a retired physician assistant, who would tell us crazy case stories about patients she had to deal with and related it back to the topic we were studying at hand. The laboratories were my personal favorite because we managed to gain hands on experience through numerous of dissections (sheep's brain and kidney, rats, Pig's heart, more rats) and microscopes. Overall, I think Sacred Heart is a great school for those who are seeking to be part of a wonderful community in a small town. This school is for students who want to be noticed by their professors in smaller class size lectures, and take advantage of their numerous internship programs to overall pursue their future careers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I will be starting college at Sacred Heart University this fall. I have visited the school several times and even stayed over one weekend. Each time I was thoroughly impressed with how clean and safe the campus is. I got the opportunity to speak to professors about my program and they were very friendly and informative.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first visited Sacred Heart's campus I was blown away. My first visit was for my band audition and I was lost and people helped me right away and they weren't rude about it. They walked me to my audition room and wished me luck and told me they couldn't wait to see me next year. At my audition I met the assistant band director who was very kind and welcoming and made me fell comfortable to play for him. I also met my professor for my major and he was also very kind and welcoming. He answered all my questions about the program and he said his email was always open for questions. Everyone who has talked to me and helped me were some of the nicest people I've ever met and I cannot wait to meet more people when I attend it the fall.

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.
