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!

The lack of financial aid is flooring. Professors themselves within my program are exceptional: they are knowledgeable, professional, personable, accessible; everything you would hope for in an intensive graduate program. After being in school for 5 years in my undergraduate program, I have minimal financial resources. This university leaves graduate students completely on their own to find resources. That's my biggest complaint: this university is expensive and it does nothing to aid the students who will move forward professionally carrying their reputation as a school.
I enjoy the environment, and I feel as though I am connected very well to the university. I have made many friends, and through playing soccer, have had a great experience on and off campus. It is close to home, and still far enough away that I am able to grow as a person individually, but am able to go home when necessary. Husson is a great fit for me!
