Sacred Heart University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (10)
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.
Sacred Heart is an outstanding university and I am lucky to have spent my four years of undergraduate studies here. I will be graduating with my bachelors in Exercise Science. All of my professors have been great and are always willing to help you out.
The social work department at my school did a very good job of preparing the individual for a career in Social Work. So much so that actually having a job in the field will likely be less work that what it took to get the degree in the first place. It is not that the curriculum is terribly difficult but it does a good job for preparing one for a job in the field. The amount of field placement that is done is one of the major factors in this. As a program that social work department required more field work hours than our schools nursing program, which by itself was known for being tough. All of that preparation only makes one even more suited for a job in the social work field.
The University of Sacred Heart is a great university with lots of opportunities. If you want to major in any communications department or any administration department, this is a great opportunity. The professors are amazing professionals with a lot of experience and dedication to the university and its students. They will do anything possible to make sure you live with a great education and, furthermore, a great experience. The admission office and financial assistance office have their doors wide open to help any student or potential student with anything they need to fulfill their dreams. And Im a great example of that, economically I couldn't afford to study but these great professionals help me find a scholarship that could help me with my financial problems, and today Im a proud Accounting graduate student. And not only are the people great, the facilities are amazing, they have a lot of open spaces so you could study surrounded by nature, the class rooms are been modernized and have air conditioning and smart boards, and the library is a great help for every student, not only does it have a great collection that is easy to obtain, it also has great librarians that are dedicated to helping every student with all of their needs. Also, in the library there is the best computer center that is available for students and visitors. In conclusion, this is a great opportunity and experience that I would recommend for anyone who is interested in attending the Best University of Puerto Rico.
Sacred Heart's online program is ultimately worthwhile, however some of the professors left a lot to be desired, and it appeared that overall the online program was given a lot less thought than physical programs.
This university has made positive strides in expansion since I graduated. The student body is now given much more opportunity and the campus has swiftly begun to catch up with its peers (Quinnipiac, etc).
