Southern Connecticut State University Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


That scholarships are always available and that you should be looking before you even graduate high school.


I wish I had known that, the transition from living with your parents to living on your own would be more easier but it wasn't for a while. Only because you are so used to your parents doing everything for you, that you don't know what you need to do, when on your own. Also , on the variety of food choices that we have on campus; most of the food is pretty nasty, and are basically the same thing every single day.


How biased the process is for admission to the nursing program


The size! I had no idea how big the student body was. I come from a small middle school and an even smaller high school. Enrolling into such a big-campused college was a little intimidating a first.


That it can get really boring when you don't have class.


I wish I had known that the classes needed in order to graduate would not be offered when necessary and that some of the professors would not be helpful.


I wish I knew more about the finacial aid because it is very difficult to keep up with all the costs and payments.


To be honest I loved SCSU...I had fun and the teachers were great. Its a great school to learn responsibilty and it will help you grow up quick...They treat you with respect and we were like family.


I wish I had known how much easier it would have been to live on-campus.


I wish I had known how much the professor care about what you learn. While some may look at it as a way for them to be hard and develop a reputation I simply see it as their trying to get the student to push themselves and get the most out of the education they are paying for. I feel as though many schools lack the care of their educators towards the people they are educating. If I had been aware sooner I feel as though I would have attended this University sooner.


I wish that I had known how many students go home on the weekend. Campus is extremely quiet on weekends with not many things to do. Also, I was a cheerleader in high school so school spirit is a big thing for me. Not many fans attend football/basketball games and there isn't much excitement for athletics around campus at all.


I wish i would have know the things i know now, it would be much more relaxing.


How dead it was on the weekend




the different housing, i live in an apartment owned by the school. i love it compared to the dorm i was in before.


i wish i would of haven known how many general requirements were needed to be completed to graduate.


I wish I had known more about the acamdemics. I was unsure of what I wanted to study, and I wish that upon enrolling in the school I received more academic advisement before I signed up for my first semester of courses. I would have liked to have been able to talk to somebody from the university one-on-one about my education.


The large amount of general requirements required for the school in order to graduate


That the advisement is not good and to talk to other people attending the school before registering for classes.


That I would not finish in two years like they make you belive.


I wish i had known that the campus would be dead on the weekends and also that the presence of fraternities and sororities was low


I wish I was informed of the different activities more. I was not informed of anything really before going in. I did not really make any friends the first year, but hoping this year since I know how this runs I will do a better job at being envolved.


more about the communication department


that books were so expensive
