University of New Haven Reviews
The Univerisity of New Haven is an average university. The campus is fairly beautiful, if you dismiss the constant construction, with daily upkeep. The food in the dining halls is fine. However, the meat is almost always undercooked leaving you with pink chicken. The professors are kind of just there, no close-knit relationships form between students and professors. A major downside is the location of the school. While the university is close to downtown new haven, the location surrounding the campus is very unsafe. There have been many accounts of creepy encounters on the streets, which is necessary to get to some classes. Some buildings are incredibly far from each other making it hard to get to class and not be out of breath.
The best college in the world! Perfect for criminal justice majors. Dr. Henry Lee perfectly and effectively designed this program with his genius mind, criminal justice skill set, and talented hands. I am a proud member of this community and am beyond excited to continue this journey.
They have a large variety of different opportunities to participate at the school outside of their already diverse academic courses, including over 200+ clubs and a number of work study and leadership programs all with much funding backing them up. The staff there are very approachable and open about any topic involving the university and are willing to take feedback and measures on improving their university. They are also very well organized during events such as orientation and it's very visible to they enjoy their job and helping out new coming students and parents.
