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!
Review Sacred Heart University
Ended up with a job. Location is decent. Athletics is getting better. Dean's office is pretty bad. Business school is getting a lot better and the professors are great there. Wish they'd skip the core, especially for students who know what they want to do and don't want to waste time "finding themselves" and answering existential questions.
I love that the university is always looking to not only improve, but also expand their campus. They are providing several resources for students in all majors. However, with such quick expansion there is limited parking spaces for students, and tickets are outrageously expensive. I believe that parking garages would make good use in our campus.
