Bryant University Reviews
Do not come here. This school has a great academic reputation however this does not weigh out the numerous other shortcomings of the University. The food is literally prison quality food (supplied by Aramark), the dorms and townhouses are extremely outdated and have mold growing in them. The party scene is non-existent due to the Department of Safety officers who patrol the townhouses and don't allow parties. The athletes get preferential treatment even though they do not even pay to attend. The school pretends to care about its students and their well-being however it just cares about making money by forcing anyone with a scholarship to live on campus (overpriced housing) even though they do not have the room to accommodate all the students. Over 100 seniors were denied townhouses because they did not have enough of them and no housing discounts were given to those students. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND STAY AWAY!
I like the class choice that are available at Bryant. The environment at Bryant is motivating and inspiring, most of the faculty appear to be invested in the success of the students. The classrooms are very modern and most rooms have computers available for students. Some of the classes focus on presentation skills to prepare college students for Business presentation. The presentations are great experience and learning opportunities. Bryant does need to be better when it comes to communicating activities for Student Life as well as to increase the availability of sport intramural teams.
Really appreciate everything this school and it's people have me. I went to Bryant when it was Bryant College back in the early 90s. It was the times of change when a small not a well-known school was beginning to change. I am happy to see more and more Bryant graduates taking executive positions with the national companies as well as embarking on the entrepreneurial paths. Great work!
