What Students Are Saying

the projects and research papers keep me busy. by attending classes everyday and doing all your homework keeps you learning more and more each day.
juliette from New Britain, CT
The university strives to challenge each individual student, while at the same time provides support for their needs. The assignments are tough, but classroom learning assistants make themselves available multiple times a week and serve as free tutors. The professors make certain that their office hours are clear and they are also readily available for free extra help. The classes are difficult, but not impossible for a dedicated student.
Allison from Trumbull, CT
The academics are very good. They are challenging enough to keep me interested and make me strive to do better.
Rebecca from Newport, RI
Sacred Heart definitely has some difficult classes. There is nothing that cannot be handled, but students need to be prepared to have time management in order to be able to balance everything there is to do. Within the first month or so it shouldn't be hard to adjust to the professors and work.

If you do not do the work it is easy to fail. However,the teachers do not overwhelm you with work so you are stressing out.
Madeline from Suffern, NY
sacred heart challenges the students to think critically and to look at all aspects of knowledge. the work that students have to put in is great and the outcome of that work is greater! academic rigor is one thing that i know every student feels that sacred heart has and i do not mind one bit. education is of great importance!
