Bryant University Reviews
I'm a person who does not like to be away from home, after my first year (living on campus) I found that I've really evolved as a person. I love the community Bryant stands for. I'm glad to call it my home away from home! If there's anything I would change it would be a better interview/analysis of some of the professors. Some of the ones I had my first year sucked, and need more training to better teach/help the students with material.
I transferred to Bryant as a junior. My experience was challenging in that the work load was a huge increase form the community college. In addition, I am a part time commuter student so I found it challenging to feel like I was a part of the Bryant community. Overall, Bryant does have a great community. Most of the teachers are great and the campus is beautiful!
Bryant is truly one of those schools with a work hard, play hard mentality. The students and school has a high focus on succeeding and getting a great job, but sees the importance of having fun and living your best life. Often a question in the work place is “who would you rather be stuck to in an airport for hours? Either a really smart ivy-student, or someone who is relatable, funny, interesting, and decently smart.” Bryant students are definitely the latter.
