Student & Graduate Reviews

4.1 out of 5 stars
AMBER NARCISSE - 6/1/2019
Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2015
"This school is a good school if you prefer smaller campuses but it is still developing. The school continues to expand in all aspects(location and programs). There are many opportunities, so take full advantages of career services, campus life & clubs, internship opportunities, and networking events. They provided financial assistance for incoming student with good standing. The nutrition department is small which was beneficial because I knew everyone and the staff. The school now has a dietetic internship program which could be beneficial for students who are planning to apply to the dietetic internship after graduation."

Elise Kohl-Grant - 5/11/2019
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2008
"At the University of New Haven, there is an open campus for students to interact and engage in their personal and professional developments. UNH has a unique and personal educational approach with distinguished academic programs to ensure that students excel at whatever it is they choose to do. I would highly recommend living on campus in order to get the full college experience. The specialized program really helps target certain areas of interest. However, I wish they were stronger on the core aspects of education. There were core finance, leadership and economic classes that did not seem to be impactful. I recommend that if you come here, you have an idea of what you want to specialize in. Professors are generally helpful and I was able to make some strong relationships with faculty. On a very positive tip, I made strong friendships that I still have 15 years later! It is fun to go into town and I highly recommend attending other college events around the area like Yale and UCONN."

SEan - 7/22/2017
Degree: Fire Science
Graduation Year: 2008
"My degree in fire science administration didn't help me immediately in my career, but feel I feel it helped me to progress into a well rounded and capable leader. I feel it certainly gave me a step up on other candidates for promotion. The exposure to professionals who valued education early in my career was very helpful in developing me as a professional."

Stephanie Chandler - 3/31/2017
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2011
"My experience at the University of New Haven is something that I would not trade for anything. Every professor that I encountered has incredible experience in the field they are teaching and to this day I hear their names mentioned outside of the school's environment. The education itself is invaluable and a degree from UNH has served me quite well post graduation. The small campus next to a big city feel serves the perfect purpose for outside of class. You have the opportunities to get to know your peers and grow with them while simultaneously being next to the beautiful bustling city of New Haven. As a Criminal Justice student, I was given multiple internship and networking opportunities to help guide me past graduation. Aside from the expenses and a few administrative frustrations that are common on most campuses. I would highly recommend this school to anyone who is pursuing a career in the field of Criminal Justice"

Monica Cecio - 3/30/2017
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2017
"The college is recently accredited with the AACSB. This board will enhance resumes for future career opportunities because employer's will see that the student attended an university which is prestigious and has a strong curriculum. The University of New Haven, although known for Criminal Justice, has a heavy focus on business subjects as well."

Ruqayyah Abdurlahoof - 3/10/2017
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016
"If you are interested in pursing your degree in Criminal Justice or Forensic Science I suggest attending this university. You will have an ample amount of resources if you are interested in pursing a career with the government or any job that allows for you use these degrees. Any other major I would highly suggest looking into other universities. At the University of New Haven the curriculum is self driven. You have to stay on top of what courses you need to graduate because a lot of the time your advisor will give you a course schedule and then next semester, when policies change for your major, you will essentially fall a semester behind. You have to search for internships on your own that will advance in your chosen career path. UNH is a developing university and is looking for new opportunities to maximize their revenue so essentially they are more focused on getting new students in on their increased tuition than keeping their third and fourth year students around. I managed to get a great job after college but I worked tirelessly all four years to ensure my post grad fate. I only worked jobs in college that were relevant to my major and refused to do anything else. Overall the university is okay for those who are pursuing anything other than CJ or FS but you have to push all four year on your own to ensure that you end up where you want to. The price tag may not be worth it however. Do your research. Talk to current students and see if they disagree with my review and if they do UNH may be the perfect fit for you."

AHAZE - 9/16/2016
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015
"The professor within the psychology department are really helpful! Definitely have a lot to offer, they are very knowledgeable and make the classes exciting. Especially History of Systems, Professor Michaud made it fun and we wanted to be in class. Melissa Whitson is one of the best advisors at the school! Very helpful! Proud to be an alum of UNH! I enjoyed my stay, from academics all the way to the athletics department! Thank you everyone for an amazing 4 years of my life."

Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2010
"Thought it was OK. Kind of expensive even with the reduction in price for being a Biology Dept. TA. Higher degree likely helped me get my job in the field, but as a public servant the salary isn't very high and paying off student loans was challenging."

Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2014
"The Henry Lee College is very helpful and is pretty much a big family. They are always friendly and push you to succeed. Personally I always had questions and concerns because I am someone that worries about everything, but my advisors were always there to talk over everything with me and to calm me down. I double majored like most forensic science do and they made sure that I was able to complete both degrees simultaneously and in a timely fashion."
