College Junior

Nightlife: It's a commuter campus in the downtown of stamford. There is no nightlife for freshman-juniors since there are only bars and 21+ clubs.

3 College Junior

Athletics: You hear about it once in a while that's it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Nobody really sees or says anything. The only thing I heard that the dean has zero tolerance for is plagarism

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I only received money in loans no scholarships. probably because its cheaper than the main campus but thats it

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Theres plenty of ethnic places to choose from which is the good thing. I could have Peruvian for lunch and go for Indian the next day if I wanted to.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always see campus police cars and occasionally an officer but I received more than 2 emails about sexual assault of students like being followed to their apartments and the garage is somewhat sketchy if you have a late class because there's usually nobody there. The school is supposedly open until 11 for the library but to be honest its so poorly lit that you wouldn't even know who was around the corner.And yea its in front of a busy street but nobody's paying that close attention most of the time to notice and theres those emergency poles by like each exit but they look ancient and I doubt I'd have time to reach an exit if someone is close enough to attack me.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: its in the downtown areas so there are places to go and things to do it just depends what youre up for. theres movies a big mall, a lot of restaurants

2 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There's no real freshman orientation type of thing to break the ice so you really have to just do it yourself. Guys are pretty forward here if they want to talk to you because there's not much else to do to introduce yourself. the school offers like movie nights or like carve your own pumpkin type of events but its not something you would go to if you didn't know anybody so its all about how forward you are.

2 College Freshman

Facilities: there is nothing to do here but go to class and go home. unless you're a social butterfly and make friends wherever you go so that way you always have people to hang out with but other than that there is really nothing to do here.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's not a terrible school. its just not really a place I would recommend for an incoming freshman I personally feel like there's zero guidance or outreach to find out what you need to do. Most of the stuff I need to know I hear from peers like the date to register for classes and such. I feel like if I were going back to get another degree as an adult yea it'd be a good place but it's just not ideal.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: theres plenty of ways to get to campus whether you drive, take the bus or the train or get a ride from a friend or even the shuttle. one way or another you'll make it here.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: there is no housing its a commuter campus.

3 College Freshman

Academics: theres not much for me to say but i know that theres plenty of research and internship opportunities as a psych/pre-med major.

3 College Freshman

Academics: It's like going to high school. Like class sixe is usually 30 or less and you know everyone in class' names and all the profesors I've had thus far are pretty cool down to earth and make the subjects interesting. The workload is not bad. As long as you apply yourself you'll do fine.You might have one or two hard classes but nothing that I would say you even lose sleep over.theres ample room and palces to study all over the place between the library, "the caf", and theres like little corridors wiht chairs and tables so you can be by yourself. registering for classes is pretty easy, but make sure you do that ASAP because the good classes fill up quick and also talk to your advisors because they wont talk to you if you don't reach out, atleast in my experience.

College Freshman

Greek Life: there's no greek life in stamford but at the main campus there is.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: the school is located downtown so its literally a 5 minute drive to the restaurants and bars no clubs really (that I've come across) but really nothing crazy or exciting is here.

3 College Freshman

Weather: For the most part its pretty okay, when its winter there are days when it can be brutal but for the most part nothing too crazy.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Not much variety from the actual cooked food.It's like your standard convenience store really there's chips, coffee, prepared salads, granola bars, bottled beverages, gum that kind of thing.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I love the location of my school, beautiful city

3 College Freshman

Facilities: The best thing about the campus is probably the amount of study space.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is no campus housing, hopefully this campus receives dorms as soon as possible.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The workload is a bit much, very dense reading, but there is plenty of internship opportunities near the school.

3 College Freshman

Academics: Some of the professors I've had don't seem to care about their students nor their efforts to do well. I've had a few excellent professors, but others I will never take again.
