Southern Connecticut State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (9)
While this is a large school, The Political Science department is very small. This allows for many one-on-one sessions and interaction with professors. All of the professors in this department care and know their students. If the student is willing to ask for help the help will be given. As for other majors that are larger, I know it is more competitive and harder to make interaction with professors. Overall, this was a great institution if you are looking for a large school and community.
I appreciated many of the professors in the English department, however, other professors out of this department did not take their classes seriously. The financial aid department is horrible at this university and recognized for losing paperwork. Overall attending SCSU is a regret i now carry with me.
Earning a Bachelors of Science in Biology from Southern Connecticut State University is a worthwhile choice that I made, with the intention of eventually applying for graduate school after. Coming into the university as a freshmen in 2012, I was at first disappointed with the program curriculum, specially in regards to the lack of classes that I wanted to take. However, I saw multiple changes that occurred both within the department of Biology and the university itself. Some things that are noteworthy about this changes is that the department, especially the faculty, deeply care for their students. New faculty have been hired that teach a wide variety of classes that can satisfy student interest. Another thing to note is that the university is always trying to reinvent itself to become a better institution. A new president has been hired, who is very student centered, and who deeply cares about what is going on within the university. Lastly, this institution is affordable, especially if you want a degree that can help you get accepted to graduate school. A student can use the learning that they received in this institution as they apply these to the professional world.
Southern Connecticut State University is a diverse campus with a variety of programs. The Social Work program is outstanding and their are professors who really want to help the students learn and make an impact in the profession. The BSW program requires a 400 hour internship with supervision which I think is excellent since this is a preview of what you will have to do in the MSW program.
SCSU is an excellent school with a very diverse student population. The professors are insightful and put the needs of the students first. There are over 100 clubs and organizations for students to join to meet the interests and needs of every individual. After completing your degree you will be well equipped to excel in your future career and go beyond your potential.
Southern Connecticut's School of Education is one of the best in the state. The professors are always highly engaged in your learning & invested in your future teaching. There are always events happening on campus and they provide a lot of support for commuter students. You can always find people willing to help you and guide you.
I graduated with a graduate degree, master of science in community counseling. I went on to get both my LPC, licensed professional counselor and LADC licensed drug and alcohol counselor. I have an excellent job where I work full time in a hospital setting and I have opened a part time private practice. The counseling program at Southern truly prepared me for a successful career.
It is an excellent University and for residents, it is very affordable. There is no need to anywhere else.
My experience at SCSU was a rocky one, but what mattered the most was that I loved my major, including the professors and courses. If you focus on that, and getting involved in activities around campus, you will make it through.
