Sacred Heart University Top Questions

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?


Do not take everything you hear from the colleges or universities on step one at orientation or college fairs, etc. at face value. They are business and are interested in making money. Make your decision based on size of the school you are looking for, the distance from home you are looking for, and if you have any special needs make sure the schools you look at have what you think is most important to you.


Finding the right college is like finding the person that you're going to marry; it's an experience that shouldn't be taken lightly. Like the dating process, there are going to be some schools that you think you might like but decide you don't, some that don't want anything to do with you, and some that just don't have everything you're looking for. Everyone looks for that perfect person and that perfect school, but the truth is: There is NO PERFECT person, PERFECT school, PERFECT anything. You need to find a school that FEELS RIGHT. I toured 2 colleges, Sacred Heart and Quinnipiac, and I knew immediately that Sacred Heart was the right school for me. Beautiful lawns and buildings are nice, but it's the PEOPLE who determine the quality of a university. One final thing: Don't let price stand in your way. I have plenty of friends who currently attend Massachusetts state schools, and they tell me that they wish they had the money to go elsewhere. With the amount of aid and scholarships available, they COULD go elsewhere. College is a major investment, so don't be afraid to spend.
