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!
There are many opportunities available to students as long as you put yourself out there! Students can complain that there is nothing to do on campus or it can be boring, but the Student Government Association (SGA) hosts many events on campus to get students involved, including weekend events. If students do not want to come to these events, then they shouldn't complain that there is nothing to do. It is easy to start a club on campus as well, you just need to have 10 signatures of students who are interested and find an advisor and you are good to go.

I wouldn't trade my education from Albertus for anything. It has provided me with immense opportunities. The faculty and staff truly care about you and professors always have office hours if you feel like you are not understanding something. Registration is an easy process as all you have to do is make an appointment with your advisor and they will sit with you one on one to pick and choose your classes. This ensures that you will be taking the classes that you NEED for your major and not random classes that will not contribute to your major/ minor requirements.
I went here for my undergrad degree in History (and then later to Marist College for graduate school). I really loved UB. Everything about this school is wonderful. The professors are great, amazing teachers with so much to share. The classes are small, I think the largest class I had was maybe 30 people.

UB has come a long way in the 3 years since I left. They have built or renovated so many facilities. The old dorms are gone and new ones are being built! The dining hall is completely re-done and is AMAZING (I've been back to see that).

This school has so much to offer and it's obviously trying (and making great strides) at improving. If you go here, get involved! Join a club, become a tour guide, or try out for a sport (some teams take walk ons). It's a good way to meet people and make loads of friends. I did all of the above haha and came away from UB with so many friends. Another great highlight of UB is the diversity. You will have friends from all over the world. Not only will this open your eyes, but when you travel you will have a lot of places to stay! I highly recommend UB. You will love your time there. I miss it!
