  • Graduation Year: 2019
"Southern Connecticut State University is affordable and provides students with a well-rounded and functional education in their area of study. As a psychology major I had many professors who were committed to helping students arrive at their final academic or career goal by walking them through each step of the process to get there. My biggest piece of advice to new students would be even if you do not like the school or the campus after the first semester, continue into the spring semester and then reevaluate after you have completed the entire year. So many people at Southern, including myself, do not like their fall semester and want to transfer but the spring semester is entirely different. The spring semester does not have the stress of transitioning and starting something new so you can appreciate the school and your environment in a completely different way."

"-Supportive teaching staff -Great variety of field-related club activities on-campus -Local activities are plenty for on-campus students The staff at SCSU is really accommodating to the working full-time undergraduate student and looks out for the interest of its students. The schools also provided a lot of career fairs though I would have appreciated more connections to career pathways within my field of study at these provided events. The campus is also always renovating and making newer facilities available to students so you know your tuition dollars are going to good use in a short amount of time so you as a student can enjoy the newest technologies and experiences during your degree program."

"Southern Connecticut State University's Public Health Program is a well-balanced program that touches on all aspects of public health. From food hygiene to epidemiology to planning programs. The teachers are very knowledgeable and really prepare you for any career path within the Public Health Field. The only aspect I feel I was not prepared was a more scientific background. Perhaps, since many nursing students used public health as a background, it would have been more helpful to add in more science courses to the program. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this program and felt adequately prepared to find a job and begin my career within this field."

"I completed both my Master's degrees at Southern Connecticut State University. The first was in Exercise Physiology and the second in Public Health. Both degrees have made a significant impact into my personal and professional success. The faculty in both programs are top notched and truly care about their students success. Many years after graduating, I continue to stay in contact with them for mentors in my field and certainly for this newest pursuit of my PhD. I would highly recommend anyone interested in SCSU to commit to themselves and have a great learning experience."

"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."

  • Degree: Biology
  • Graduation Year: 2012
"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."
