What Students Are Saying

The school is beautiful and very clean. The students, faculty and staff are all very personable and always willing to help. The campus is safe and there are a lot of safety features in place to make students feel even safer.
Rebecca from Newport, RI
Sacred Heart University is a closely knit private school focused in on the Catholic Intellectual Tradition, and they live up to this tradition exceptionally. In each of its core classes, and in every learning opportunity students take part in, they are reminded to question their core values and life's purpose. Its wide range of academics, sports, and extracurricular activities make the school a place where students can express themselves in other than just the classroom.
