Sacred Heart University Top Questions

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

Samantha

Yes

William

The girls here are good looking for the most part and we are close to Bridgeport, but we're also bordering Fairfield which is a really nice town.

Lauren

No. Not everyone at the school is made of money nor stuck up. I find so many of the people here friendly. Wherever you go you are going to find people you won't get a long with but that steroetype is far from true.

Danielle

Many students are from Long Island, but there is still a diversity in ethnicity. The school is smaller than other schools but I find it to be a good size( its all what you prefer).

Leigh

Yes.

Kerri

It is partially true, but there are also so many great people at SHU, and it is so easy to make the best of friends.

Jennifer

the internships are "misrepresented", especially the 5 year master's program for education, it's really 5 and a half or 6 if you do the actual internship.

Eric

Yes.

Joe

Unfortunately for the most part they stereotypes are accurate. In my opinion, after four years there, I met only a few people who didn't fit the stereotype. Althpugh the majortiy of the people I associated with in college fit this stereotype, the friends I made at SHU are not even remotely close to it. They are more like me: down to earth, blue-collar kids who don't have wealthy parents.

Stephanie

No not at all. While there are some that fit these sterotypes there is a wide range of diversity throughout the student body. A person can always find a group to associate and feel welcomed with.

monica

sometimes.

Emily

EVERYONE IS FROM LONG ISLAND!!!

Steve

The professors and university staff is always willing to meet with you and treat you like and adult in the buisness world.

Kristen

for the most part

Tina

No.

Jessica

No - in fact the only high school like thing at SHU is the fact that most classrooms and the cafeteria are in the same building...but who's complaining?

Nicole

some

Jackie

Yes, for the most part.

Maggie

Well for the most part, there are a lot of wealthy kids and many are from Long Island but there are also a great deal of other people here that come from a variety of background and economic levels.

Gina

I'd say the majority of our students are from Long Island so yes, it is pretty accurate but the rich stereotype is not accurate.

Allison

Not really. Most people are from Long Island, but that does not mean they are snobby or Italian.

Heather

yes. they are accurate.

Kyle

No, not at all. Sacred Heart does have a GSA chapter, and the staff is very open minded and helpful. The students are really cool about it too. Some may not agree with the Gay Community, but they are mature enough to not be rude about it.

Chris

Somewhat, I'm not gunna lie, there are some stuck up kids here but everyone is pretty much down to earth and it's really easy to find a group of friends here. We definitely study a lot, but we know how to have a lot of fun as well.

Ian

yes

Katelyn

true
