"School was ok overall, had great professors in the Psychology and Sociology department. Not enough diversity, it's definitely getting better though. Food was alright. The school is close to the mall which is nice. The school has been buying a lot of property so it will be more new and innovate buildings. Has a great nursing program and business program as well."

"I received my BS in chemistry with a concentration in biochemistry, so I was a student of the chemistry department. At SHU, the biology department is much larger than the chemistry department, which has its pros and cons. A con is that it can seem like more resources are allocated to the biology department. However, the class sizes in the chemistry department are much smaller and make for a much more personalized experienced. The chemistry department also has wonder and bright professors that are more than willing to help their students. Even though SHU is not necessarily known for their science programs, I very much enjoyed my time as a chemistry student at SHU."

"I absolutely loved my time at Sacred Heart University. The athletic training program is incredibly difficult. It was also pretty small, but now, with the new building that was created for the College of Health Sciences, the program will grow leaps and bounds. Housing on campus is pretty tight for upperclassmen, but there are plenty of houses nearby to rent and I believe this made my college experience even better. Overall, Sacred Heart is an up and coming school that has plenty of potential. Even in its rebuild, I spent the four best years of my life at SHU."

"Sacred Heart accounting program include motivated teachers, tutoring opportunities (from teachers and underclassmen), a career development center (where students are helped with job placement, internship placement, resume building etc.), monthly lectures from various accomplished business men and women, and a mentoring program (to help incoming freshmen learn about the college experience and give underclassmen a chance to practice their leadership skills)."

"Sacred Heart University is an amazing college for anyone who wants a relationship with their professors. The small class size allows students to have easy access to their professors and form professional relationships with them that open up for networking opportunities. Professors at Sacred Heart want their students to succeed and want to ensure their students are in the correct field and know what their goals are after graduation."

"Sacred Heart University is a small campus that is located in the Fairfield/Bridgeport area of Connecticut. Sacred Heart has given me many opportunities when I was attending for the four years. Not only did they have a great curriculum for academics, but also outside in the community like volunteering. Our campus offered many organizations and clubs to join, all diverse in many ways. The diversity ranged from individuals in the club and what the goal was for each club/organization. I was involved with many organizations on campus, but focused on volunteering and my studies. The social work program has a wide range of professors with different backgrounds. By listening to the professors backgrounds, it helped me as a student to figure out where I see myself in the future as a social worker. It has also helped me in using different techniques when working with clients and patients. Each of their experiences has enhanced my understanding of a social worker in the field. As stated before, Sacred Heart has many opportunities for everything you can imagine, not only for academics but also involvement on campus and in the community."

"I loved the psychology program and really enjoyed all of my teachers. However, the biggest problem that I encountered with this school was the administration. When needing help on various issues such as financial aid, registration, and even graduation, I was frequently met with resistance even if it was a simple question. Unfortunately, I was hardly the only student who encountered these issues. I graduated a few years ago so I hope that things have changed by now."

"SHU is an incredible community suited for the brightest students looking to use their talents to benefit others. The goal of all students is to leave Sacred Heart in a place that it better than when they arrived. As a result the University is one of the fastest growing in the country. Nevertheless, SHU has not lost its commitment to students who advocate for themselves and seek leadership not for their resume, but for their future communities."

"Sacred Heart University is the type of school where you are family, not just a number. Where teachers spend sleepless nights helping you reach your highest potential. Where you walk on campus and people are smiling and calling your name. This is not just a school, it is my second home."

"Sacred Heart University was a place where I felt at home. It allows you to try new things and meet new people within the first week of moving in. There are plenty of opportunities offered that range from academic to recreational. Whether you want to join an athletic club, academic club, or Greek life, there is a place for everybody. There is a real sense of family when you come on to the campus. As far as the Social Work department, it can't get much better. All professors are supportive and knowledgeable. They are true resources in learning about the field and moving forward in a career. They prepare you fully for the next step you take after graduation and support any path you decide to take. If you want to be a part of a department where you learn and grow not only as a student but as a whole person, the social work department is the place to go. I have nothing but positive experiences after attending Sacred Heart for my BSW."
