Sacred Heart University Reviews
During my fall semester, SHU helped me learn about myself, meet new people, step out of my comfort zone, and grow astronomically as a person. The beautiful campus, excellent faculty, and overall atmosphere come together to form a holistic environment in which a student feels motivated to be better. Though, it goes far beyond the simple fact that the school is building new facilities...any school can do that. Rather, its the culture that exists where the school itself is constantly striving to be better, which is why our mascot, the pioneer, is fitting. SHU is constantly pioneering what a college can be. Being a part of this truly makes a difference in the students' college experience. This is the ONLY SCHOOL that I visited that had this type of environment.
Sacred Heart is a great school for the busy student! Be sure to join clubs and organizations, as this school is full of students who love to participate. The classes are pretty good, although a couple professors are a bit difficult. All in all, a great school!
Meh. It has ups and downs. The campus is pretty and the professors are usually pretty great. The campus food is okay but housing is downright terrible. There's not enough housing for everyone so beware (I'm a commuter). Greek Life seems to be the "norm" here, and although there's clubs to join the social scene can get boring. Not much to do without a car. Really consider the location and size (feels a bit too small at times).
