What is your overall opinion of this school?

American education is about making money and this university is no different. You integrity is gpa based. They have corrupt professors. And the chain of command is corrupt too. All of them. If you attempt to change or file a complaint about it, they will hide it and do their best to be rid of you. Don't waste time or money, take your children else where. Oh, they also threatened the VA rep for helping a vet after the school showed exextrem disrespect to a crippled infantry vet who confronted another student for valor stealing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Southern Connecticut States University by far is one of the best instate colleges that I’ve attended. Students who attend here can find just about any major. They have one of the best Exercise Science and Nursing majors which many students attend here for, including myself. The campus itself is not to big nor too small. It is about a perfect size, allowing adequate space for on campus activities and students to walk or hang out. Southern also host many activities for students to participate in. Many classrooms are within walking distance, which is very convenient for the students. The classes themselves are great because they aren’t very big. As for teachers, I recommend visiting RateMyProfessor and reading the reviews for some teachers. I say that because every teacher has a different teaching style and you do not want to end up with one whose teaching style you don’t like. The only downside is you would have to be flexible with your schedule. Southern Connecticut has very clean facilities and very polite staff members, especially ones at Connecticut Hall (Dining Hall). The staff always greet students with a smile and when students need something they help with no issues. For those who are looking to live on campus, I recommend visiting and checking out the dorms. There are many dorm options depending on your college status. Another great thing about Southern is that parking is free! All you must do is to provide some information to the campus police and they give you a parking pass in return. If your looking for a college to attend, I’d attend Southern!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Southern Connecticut State University has a very diverse student body, which appeals to what I look for in schools. The teachers and staff are encouraging and invested in the student's success. The campus itself is very nice, kept clean and looking nice all year round. I really enjoy going here and would recommend to anyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion on Southern Connecticut State University, is that its an amazing school. Not only is the school academically amazing but also socially. All the students and faculties are friendly and are willing to help if you’re in need. Usually people say “once you’re in college you’re on your own”. Which is true in most cases with the responsibility of becoming a young adult. But Southern provides a variety of resources you can use if you’re truly in need. So far Southern is making my freshman experience not as scary as everyone says college would be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I liked the school but wish it wasn't in the middle of New Haven where students are getting robbed at night. Don'y get me wrong their was campus police but and robbery happens so quick and they never find out who the robber is because it's not a student its a resident from the area.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Southern Connecticut State University is a great school. It is very lively and quite diverse. There is all sorts of clubs for just about anything. From your major, minor, and ethnic background! SCSU are always trying to get the students involved through charity events, concerts, and more! Professors are always willing to stay a few hours to help!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Excellent school with top tier professors (most either share time between Southern and Yale or are students at Yale) Excellent facilities to include: New Gym and bookstore New geoscience department Veterans area complete with computers and printers If you're looking for a university that feels small but has a huge footprint with excellent faculty, Southern is for you. Plus it's only an hour and half by train to NYC or Boston, and New Haven is a student city—with everything you'd want it to have.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although SCSU is still a predominately white institution, as a minority, I do feel that they try their best to be inclusive of all races, genders and sexual orientations. I feel as though this school has allowed me to find my voice as a student and discover new passions as a student. There is a lot of academic and personal resources on campus, it's just the students' job to find them. There are several activities that are posted throughout the academic buildings, dorm buildings as well as the dining hall. If you ever need something to do, check the weekly email updates as well as the school website. As far as academics, I have made pretty good connections with my professors as we all have a common goal of creating an effective learning environment. The class sizes vary depending on the type of class. For example, they can range from about 25-30 students in a class but they will not exceed 200 as that is the biggest lecture spaces. I really enjoy the opportunities that I have been given at this University and look forward to continuing my education here at SCSU!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a very popular school for commuters. If you live nearby, it would just be easier to commute than living on campus. Several people go home on the weekends or after class. Professors and faculty are helpful and nice, but other staff can be unfriendly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Southern is a good school. I decided to attend because it won't break the bank and it's close to home. For what it is, it's not half bad. However, it isn't an amazing institution. I have also attended a Community College in the area, and the only real difference is the size of the campus and an extra $3,000 on the tuition.
