Sacred Heart University Top Questions

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

Samantha

Wealthy/limited diversity

William

hot girls go here, we live in the ghetto

Alex

As you have probably read from other reviews, we are stereotyped as a bunch of snotty rich kids from Long Island. I personally only have a handful of friends from Long Island here, none of which I would consider anywhere near snotty. A great deal of my friends are from New England. Regardless of where we are from, SHU students are really friendly and helpful to eachother.

SHU is often stereotyped as a total Long Island school. Take it from a Bostonian, there is a place for everyone =) We all coexist harmoniously and it makes the NY/Boston rivalry that much more fun and exciting, no comments on the Superbowl. People also ask if we are a suitcase school-not at all! There is a TON to do everyday and every weekend, so get involved. You'll want to stick around. Your friends will too! Underage drinking is a problem across the country. I don't think SHU falls into the category of more than any other school. We are a dry campus, so stricter rules fall on campus grounds and offenders-this shouldn't be a surprise! One thing I think SHU really excels in is promoting a lot of various activities for students to participate in-partying is not the only weekend option!

Everyone at Sacred Heart is rich and stuck up.

party school, most students are anything but good church girls and boys, internships are supposed to be good

Joe

Rich, spoiled, shallow individuals. The majority of SHU students are from Long Island, which is notorious for wealth, greed, and more or less, the "guido" lifestyle of excess. Sacred Heart students are perceived as slackers because most opt for majors which are considered easy, such as psychology, business, or other social sciences.
