5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: lots of attractive people. tons of hot guys

5 College Senior

3 College Senior

Greek Life: i dont know much because I am not part of it, but it seems like it could be very fun

3 College Senior

Athletics: we are not D1 but sports are very important to SHU students. Especially football and soccer

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would not choose it again because it is so expensive and I am not sure if there is value in all that extra money I paid for

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: the professors were all top-notch. Classes are usually smaller so your teachers all know you by your first name and can have a more personal relationship with each of their students. All of my professors were very helpful, willing to support and guide me.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The Sacred Heart campus is beautiful. All of my professors were exceptional and I really did learn a lot. I just think that this school is very over priced. I also think students aren't always friendly and welcoming. People are more inclusive and generally closed off to others so being a part of a sports team and/or greek life is crucial

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: People try to get together and rent out single family homes in Bridgeport, CT. They're pretty average.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There is a great italian place called Mario's only 5 min away from campus. Their food is excelling and they accept the SHU card for payment. They unfortunately do not deliver though. There is and a delicious sushi place right outside of the campus. They do deliver and also take your SHU card.

3 College Senior

Administration: If you're into crazy partying and drug use- this is not the place for you. They are very strict about drug and underage alcohol use. People rarely get away with it- especially in SHU housing. If you're looking to do those kinds of things while attending SHU you better

(A)do it off-campus

(B)get off-campus housing where security won't monitor you

2 College Senior

Scholarships: Not too many scholarship opportunities. I will be graduating with insane amounts of loans. If you dont have the money saved up, don't count on very much scholarship money. Be prepared to take out loans

3 College Senior

Party Scene: Not too many crazy, wild parties because they often get shut down. But people do throw get-togethers at their off-campus houses

4 College Senior

Campus Food: I pick Linda's as my top choice. Outtakes can provide you with starbucks coffee and great snacks. I particularly love outtake's bagels- so soft & chewy! Just be careful at outtakes because its very easy to overspend there. Everything there is expensive

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: While the actual dorm building are new/renovated and very clean, there is very few housing. Most kids have to find off-campus housing on their own

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Wouldn't recommend living off campus. Not as safe, it's more expensive, you won't be able to drive to campus cause there is no parking, landlords are charging more since many people are trying to find houses

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Best places to go are colony grill, Cheesecake Factory, flip side burger, and pretty much anywhere in downtown fairfield. The mall is also convenient if you want something quick to eat like panera or Dunkin

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The school is pretty strict on drinking in the dorms . Public safety are usually pretty nice though and very helpful

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I am constantly battling with financial aid. Both of my parents are deceased so I really struggle trying to pay for school. Financial aid doesn't do anything to help my situation

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not the best at sacred heart. Most parties get blown up pretty easily

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is pretty decent compared to other schools. Not as many food choices in 63s on the weekends though. It's very convenient to have Linda's open til 2am Thursday to Saturday. I hate that they don't allow us to swipe other people in to 63s. We were able to do it last year. We should be able to use our dining plans how we want. SHU has no right to tell us how to use the money we pay for our meal plan

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love living on campus . It's convenient and close to all of my classes and the dining halls. Living in campus housing is a great way to meet other student your age. The housing process was quite stressful since sacred heart did not have enough housing options originally since our incoming class was so large. Everything ended up working in the end though. Parking on campus is very limited which can be annoying if you want your car on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: juniors and seniors all live off campus

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: 63's is typical buffet food, sometimes it gets cold or gross but they always have chicken, burgers, hot dogs, salad bar and pizza buffet, and the weekdays have pretty good main menu options but overall Linda's is the place to go
