I think that the University of Bridgeport is a great that wants to gives its students all that they can, but I also think that because is a private university they don’t have the resources to improve the things that they want to improve. If the the university was given enough donates this school would have the opportunities to go even greater things.

very good university.


The food here sucks, The only good housing is in University hall and freshman can't even get in there, plus you have to pay extra. The academics suck and the classes aren't challenging that much. Bodine Hall is the worst because it reminded me of a haunted house when I first saw it and went inside.


University of Bridgeport is a interesting school. It very diverse but also some how segregated. Bridgeport has many different cultures, Americans of all races as well as culture outside the USA such as middle eastern, Chinese, Korean, Indian, and West African. It nice to have a school so diverse, learning different cultures and the way they do things. At the same time though everyone sticks to their own culture never really mixing together. The classes at the University of Bridgeport are pretty good. All the professors I had have been good with their teaching. The events on campus are fun to attend be prepare to pay a fee, which I think you can expect at any college. The food is decent the like to repeat some of the meal choices which gets a little bit tiring. Overall University of Bridgeport is what you make it.

  10. Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

    Your success in college largely depends on your attitude, your preparedness and your desire to succeed. Never procrastinate, copy, cheat or neglect to treat each assignment as if your stay in college depended upon it alone. No amount of ability will supercede the value of tenacity and good judgement, integrity and moral breeding. Work hard, play and pray hard, but most of all, remember that success is the result of good planning, hard work, persistence and a little bit of luck. So plan well, work hard all the time and then you may not even need luck.
