3 College Junior

Overall Experience: playing a division one sport is damaging

the people there suck

i feel that the school could be run better and have better connections

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: A lot of the people I met were friendly however as a commuter I found it a little difficult to be more involved within the school. The only reason I wouldn't choose this school again is because I missed out on the living on campus life which can be a big part of the college experience. On the other hand this was a first school choice, but it was not completely what i expected.

Campus Food: flick is good for breakfast and lunch times. lindas is good for dinner but i dont eat lindas everyday for dinner because it is the same food everyday. flick should have more options also because you feel like you end up eating the same thing every day

Campus Housing: even though my roommates and i did not get our initial dorm coming into freshman year it worked out for the best. we fell on love with our building and it was sad to leave. our building was across the street so it was quiet which was nice because you didnt know everyones business if you didnt want to.

Health & Safety: The wellness center is always here to help you if you ever have a problem, but they dont like to give out prescriptions that often.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: All of our teams suck. Well, most of them. No one usually goes to the games unless they are forced to go (i.e. clubs or greek life events).

Off-Campus Housing: I love living off campus. The school will not help you search for a home, but there is always flyers posted in the hallway looking for students. Most houses are close to campus, but in a bad area. Be careful and stay alert to the neighborhood if you're planning on living off campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: If you're looking for late night food, the only places really open are the merrit and mcdonalds. You can travel 15 minutes away earlier in the day to go downtown fairfield, but it's far and pricey

3 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: If you are looking to go to a house party...dont come here. Big bars are located in Stamford or SONO and GSTAR on a tuesday night.

3 Recent Alumnus

Administration: The problem with public safety is that they are looking out to bust parties off campus. If you live in an off campus house, public safety will not help you unless it is to break up a party. They dont seem to care about visitors...very easy to have a visitor inside your dorm without public safety knowing.

Scholarships: Sacred Heart financial aid office sucks. The workers are very nice, but the school itself does not give out any aid.

Campus Food: The food isnt bad, but isnt the best. When youre super hungry I would reccomend going to 63's instead of Lindas because you will get more food with your swipe.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I have lived in the off-campus townhouses and they were very spacious and clean. I have been in the Freshmen dorms, and those too are nice. Currently, SHU students can live in the Trumbull Marriott, which is far away, however you get a full size bed and get to live in a hotel! Only problem with that is it does not feel like a community.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of options with downtown fairfield being close but also a lot of options of diners and such on main st

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Usually can find something to do on the weekends if you want to and usually pretty fun

4 College Freshman

Administration: All of the public safety officers are very nice and willing to help

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I would say it's hard because you defiantly need to get your face in the office and talk to someone who actually means something and not just a receptionist at the front desk.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Linda's has great options for food while the prices are outrageously high. Outtakes is very convenient but it is horrible to have to pay so much for the little things.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Great dorm building. Roncalli Hall is very spacious, clean and friendly. It has been an awesome place to live freshman year.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Because Bridgeport is basically where the school is located a lot of areas are really unsafe. There have been two rapes in off-campus housing last semester alone.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Usually can only go to the mall which just has food court food. Sometimes can go to Downtown Fairfield for better options but is an incredible hassle seeing as the shuttle never runs and it takes an hour to get anywhere when Fairfield is 10 minutes away.
