Sacred Heart Univeristy is a small, private Catholic University located on the boarder of Fairfield and Bridgeport. Despite the stereotype of Bridgeport, the area surrounding SHU isn't bad at all- it's actually really safe and you're really close to everything you need, including malls, inexpensive stores, and housing in nice areas that isn't half as expensive as Fairfield. The student body is primarily white, except for a few athletes, and usually come from NJ, NY, Long Island, CT, and Mass. The people are well groomed and usually good looking. You always see a familiar face around, and everyone is pretty friendly to one another- the school spirit is strong. Sacred Heart is a division 1 school in the northeast conference. Going out to clubs and bars can get pretty pricey, considering the most common form of transportation is taxi's/trains and being well dressed is a must, but it's always fun. If you're not so much into the club/bar scene, it's not hard to find a local house party going on. The school is pretty expensive, and the prices of food are ridiculous. Some of the rules are pretty stupid, but if you're decently smart you can get away with anything. The SHUttles take you to the trainstation, mall, grocery store, etc. so you really don't need a car, though it does come in handy. Though it's not an Ivy League school and you don't need to be in the top 5% to get admitted to Sacred Heart, if you don't do your work you won't be able to stay. The reputation of Sacred Heart is a rising one, and the internship/job opportunities they offer are amazing. All in all, if you get your work done you and do well you'll have a good future ahead of you and have a lot of time to have fun, too.
