    UB has become my second home. The community on campus helped me grow as a person and I have met so many wonderful people here. The faculty and staff are very accommodating and love interacting with the students here. Coming here has been one of the best decisions of my life!

    As a graduate student, living off campus, I'm not heavily involved in things outside of my coursework. However, in my experience, my advisors were not very helpful -- its almost as though they operate on a "don't ask, don't tell" policy, which would be fine if every student knew which questions to ask. I must say, in contrast, the teaching staff was typically very involved, and helpful in ensuring progressive career development.
    I attended University of Bridgeport for my Masters in Elementary Education. The professors are extremely knowledgeable. Staff is helpful with whatever you need. Honestly had such an amazing experience all around. I definitely recommend this University.
