For any athletes that are considering coming here, here is an honest review from an athlete after my first semester. I am a girl and I'm on one of the sports teams that has their season in the fall. Personally, I am really happy with my decision to attend SHU. Yes, it is a small campus. That is probably the biggest complaint I hear from people. "This is so small" "It's like high school" "Everybody knows everything about everyone". It is only like high school if you choose to act like you're still in high school. Sure, if you want to gossip about everyone and actually care about what other people do, then yes, it is going to be very much like high school. But if you stay out of the drama and focus on yourself, you will be much happier. This campus definitely is athletes vs. non-athletes, but as an athlete, we kind of get the better end of the stick, being completely honest. All of the athletes kind of understand each other because we all chose to attend this school for our sport. We all support each other at games and attend a lot of each other's. For parties, it is usually athlete houses off campus that host them. However, they are not ONLY athlete parties, a lot of non-athletes come but it is never a problem. It is a dry campus, but our new president is trying to change it to a wet campus, which means alcohol will be allowed on campus for those who are 21 and up. You'll be really good friends with your fellow freshmen on your respective team and most likely other teams as well. I like the smaller campus feel because you are actually SOMEBODY instead of a random face among 20,000 others. As an athlete, a lot of people, even the non-atheltes know you, so its nice. I would recommend coming here! You meet a lot of great people and have a lot of fun!
