The school was very organized and would hold a lot of events for the students to partake in! Quality of classes would vary, but my personal experience was great! I had a lot of professors who would do their best to communicate with the students and make sure we were all on the same page. I even had professors who would answer emails rather frequently. The overwhelming amount of clubs was also a very big positive aspect as it was easy to find something you liked an could get involved in.

I would give the University of New Haven 4/5 stars because as of right now I am not a student, but I will share why I picked this school to further my studies. I went to a very small high school that did not encourage students to get involved. Teachers and administrators really did not reach out or care if students were not keeping up. Sports were practically nonexistent, and many people quit or had a hard time getting noticed because everyone else was so inexperienced. However, University of New Haven already is showing more care and interest in my success than anyone did in my 4 years of high school. I've noticed they take pride in their teams, they help each other like family. They have multiple pages on social media to reach out to upperclassmen for advice so you feel prepared and welcomed. They try to encourage all students to get involved. Their major specific programs also made me more comfortable about choosing what career path to take and I'm excited to attend.
The professors that work here are very helpful. They are willing to go the extra mile to help students understand the material. They are very friendly and have no problem having a conversation about anything. There have been some recent problems with some of the students that go to the Unversity, but they DO NOT represent the overall atmosphere of the school. It is a very inclusive school that works with the surrounding community well. There is a lot of clubs at my school that range from sports to religious organizations to jedi club. It really is amazing how much there is to do at the school.
