If you ache for a small community feeling, this school is for you. No matter where you go or time it is you will always see a friendly face you know.

Great for business. I would have chosen somewhere slightly more liberal if given the chance, but I'm very confident I will find a good job.

Bryant University is a fantastic school to go to. Back in early July, I went to an orientation for the university. The community is a very inclusive and friendly environment. Because the school is relatively small, most of the current students knew each other extremely well. At other universities I've been to, it was not like that. So far, I do have a considerable amount of hope that when I enter into the campus in the fall, I will not regret going there.
