University of Bridgeport Reviews

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.

When attending the University of Bridgeport you can help. The professors come from highly experienced backgrounds and the residential life staff are excellent programs and the safety the campus provides. I also enjoy the peaceful environment the campus provides. Some improvements are necessary to update the campus such as the older building which have been under kept. The dinning hall offers a variety of food but need more tasty options. Its a great and affordable school if you do not choose to dorm. If your a party student, this school is not for you. It has very strict overnight rules and security is on top of most things. Campus security is everywhere if you need help, but to get away with things is not possible. The Bridgeport area is nice during the day but dangerous at night. If you have a car traveling is easiest because public transportation is not very reliable at times. The school does provide a shuttle that is reliable but it does not take you far off campus.
