The University of Bridgeport may be known for the diversity of its student population, but it is also known for its high tuition, unsatisfactory on-campus housing, and disappointing dining. There is often confusion among the residents as to where all the funds go; it is obvious they are not being used to install air conditioning in the dorms, improve dining options, or renovate the aging classrooms.Student life is what you make of it. There are few interesting activities promoted on campus, and many of the intriguing events require payment. One event UB does right, however, is the Fair held every Spring and Fall at the Ped Mall. The University provides food trucks, bouncy houses, games, and customized memorabilia--all for free! Essentially, a student's experience at the University of Bridgeport will be what they make of it. Getting involved in clubs and finding a group of friends will render great social satisfaction. As far as dining goes...let me to introduce you to Easy Mac.
Review University of Bridgeport
University of Bridgeport is an amazing school! They have an amazing campus right next to the ocean! There are many sports and clubs that students can join. The dorms/housing are very clean and have amazing views. You can fin many great places to eat on campus. University of Bridgeport is very diverse. There is many students with many different cultures who go to this school! Students on campus are very friendly. If you need directions just ask one of he many wonderful students on campus. The safety on campus is taken very seriously! They care about there students safety very much. There is campus police, who make sure all students are safe!
Being a student at the University of Bridgeport has been one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. Professors are amazing, educated in their field, and truly try their best to know each student (thanks to the small class sizes). UB offers so many opportunities from events to internships. I am without a doubt, a proud and enthusiastic Purple Knight!
