Husson University is an amazing school. My favorite part about it is the student to teacher ratio. Every class I have had, my teacher knows my first and last name, and even knows other things about me. My biggest class was around 35 students, but the teacher still knew every student’s name in the class. The professors and all of the staff at Husson University are always willing to help you with anything, whether you need help finding something around the campus or if it’s help with homework, they will help you even if they do not have you in class.


The residence hall I lived in at Husson was very quiet, which made it easy to study and sleep. I have heard about how other campuses are and I think that Husson is one of the quietest campuses. There is also very high campus security that will escort you from the parking lot to your dorm if it is dark, and they are always willing to lend a helping hand if it’s needed. Husson University is an awesome school all around!

I like Husson University because it is a small school, it is safe, and the program I am in is top notch. I wish there was a larger fitness facility because it always seems packed with student/athletes and there never seems to be enough room for students who just like to stay in shape. It would also be great to be able to shoot hoops and have a place to do that. The food is great! I wish there were more activities on campus and more diversity.
Husson University is a college where you are truly able to grow. I have had nothing but the best experiences with faculty members, and other students on Campus. It feels like home here because everyone is so friendly and supportive, plus the food is AMAZING!
