3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life isn't that big, you can still go out if you're not involved with greek life.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus housing is okay but in a bad neighborhood if you're renting a house.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Not much diversity, mainly all white.

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: They are either bitches or douche bags.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Health and safety are a priority, great health center and great security at night.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: In Bridgeport which is not a great neighborhood so unless you are going to the mall, there is not much to do unless you go to fairfield.

3 College Freshman

Parking: The prices are reasonable put spots fill up quickly.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: No one pays attention to most athletics here because the teams are not awesome

3 College Freshman

Academics: The physical therapy program is good, which is the reason why I came, and the only reason. If I could choose again, I'd choose a different school though. Not much going on on the weekends, and ridiculously expensive! Classes can be stupid as a freshman too. I hate religion and a bunch of my core classes the teachers don't even know things, about the class topic! A seminar on the Caribbean my professor didn't know that St. Maarten is divided in ownership....and my western civ class I sit there and watch history channel documentaries. I know it's just core classes, but am I paying 50,000 to watch the history channel? I can pay 8 bucks a month for netflix.

Health & Safety: Sacred Heart is safe, although it is in a kind of bad area, of Bridgeport...I've always felt safe, but campus public safety can be really annoying. They follow taxis to parties...HOUSE PARTIES to break them up. That's annoyance in a nutshell.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There are a lot of students from the tri-state area and Long- Island, and the race is predominantly white, but not by much.. There is a small amount of diversity, but I find that everyone is treated the same; people look past the superficial characteristics. I do believe that the environment and atmosphere definitely helps the students understand more about our faith and I found that a lot a students seemed grounded and genuine.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I find that if there is a situation where it is affecting someone else's safety, they are very strict and take the repercussions for breaking the rules very seriously. This is good because it allows the students to feel more safe on campus. If it is something that could not potentially harm another person, then they will gladly give a warning, but only really one or two.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The computer labs, there is one main one, and then the library, as well as a computer in almost every classroom that is available to students regularly. The library is generally not overly crowded, except for midterms and finals week. The wireless network is very good and depending on the classes you take, your major, and your professor, you may need to have a laptop in class. If not, there are plenty of computers to use around campus instead.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoyed my experience, I just do not feel like I belong here for the next three years. While I was here, I really appreciated how the professors were willing to help each student individually, as well as know them by name. My adviser was very helpful, and the overall atmosphere in this school is friendly. Although I may not have felt completely comfortable, I know plenty of people who have. Not every school is meant for every student. It is a small, Catholic college which had a strong foundation on the catholic common core, and mainly the question, "What does it mean to be human." This school really helped me "find myself" and for students looking for a socially small, close, and friendly environment with a lot of opportunities for clubs and extracurricular activities, I recommend considering Sacred Heart University.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: all in new haven, can go to some in bridgeport but could be sketchy

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: after sophomore year, live off campus its cheaper and the housing lotto is a nightmare

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: fairfield and trumbull are cute, the nearest college is yale/QU about a 20 min drive people go to the clubs near there bc new haven is def a college town

College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: we have like a 60/40 ratio of girls to guys

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: not too strict, if your not a freshman you can have friends stay over whenever. if your a freshman you need to optain a pass

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: basically wherever the shuttle takes you.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: they dont give much academic

2 College Junior

Transportation: The transportation at school consists of the shuttle. If you need to call a cab you do it by yourself, the school is no help. The shuttle is not convenient, you never know when it will arrive. There are also not enough shuttles running. There is no cost to ride the shuttle. If you have to go long-distance it is nice to have a car, if not a friend that has a car, otherwise you have to call a cab.

3 College Junior

Diversity: There is not a lot of diversity. Many people are accepting, there are no problems that I have ever heard about. There really is not anything going on about religion or political beliefs. There is mass on sundays.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing process is absolutely terrible, you not only need one back-up plan but more like three back-up plans. There is not enough housing for students. The worst option is Taft commons due to its distance and it is not the greatest area. Housing is expensive, a pretty large portion of your tuition fee. My favorite place to live was Roncalli Hall, each floor had its own washer and dryer and it had a common room for everyone with a TV. The rooms were really nice and clean.

3 College Junior

Athletics: For a division one school I think the gym should be better. It should be bigger and it needs more treadmills. When there is a team lifting it is hard to do anything because there are so many of them. The football stadium is very small, I know high schools that have a larger stadium. The fan support and homecoming is good.
