make sure you get to know your teachers because teachers love that. always have a planner so that you don't forget things and you're able to plan ahead. Don't party and forget why went there in the first place!! because they would not waste time in kicking you out. also ALWAYS check on your financial aid and make sure nothing goes wrong.. IT IS OF EXTREME IMPORTANCE.... things happen all the time and you might be able enjoy school..

Learn how to save money! Before October even ended people had already wasted their dining dollars and were asking people to purchase things for them. BE YOURSELF. Don't do things that you normally wouldn't do. Don't try so hard to fit in with the crowd because you'll only hurt yourself at the end. Get involved campus get to know people because you will be seeing their face almost everyday because the campus is not that big. Furthermore, Ladies maintain yourselves clean! That means brush teeth, take showers, does, laundry, and maintain room fresh clean air and looking decent. Act like you got some type of home training. If one of your closet friends on campus, roommate or anyone tells you that you have an odor take it into consideration and do something about it.One more thing if you smoke just go to Seaside Park across the street because the smell is gross, not everyone smokes and can stand the smell, and you'll most likely get caught if you do so inside because there are snitches in this school just like any other place.

i recommend if you are interested to come visit and see it it's the right fit for you. i think it's just big enough to make new friends but small enough to form a group,but it's not for everyone. i also recommend getting involved right away. once you get involved you're in the know about what's happening on campus and can make friends with similar interests. also to go to events! i've learned so much about other cultures besides my own by attending international student coffee hours and different events on campus.

Come in prepared. Register as early as possible, get your books before the first day, and do your homework/classwork. The first few weeks are low key but will seriously help.
Rachael from Torrington, CT
Do not be shy because everyone is friendly and the staff are more than willing to help you. Stay focus on your academics. There is plenty of areas around campus you can use for studying so use them wisely.
Ashli from Bridgeport, CT
University of Bridgeport is there to help you. They have so much help available and everyone there is just so friendly. From the moment I walked in, I felt accepted. I once applied to a different college in New Haven and the counselor was so rude and did not even introduce herself to me, but the University of Bridgeport was opposite of that. The staff was amazing and made me feel welcomed and free to ask any questions. The University also has many events to attend for you and your family to be involved and entertained. I would not have it any other way, the University of Bridgeport in my opinion is great. It has a beautiful view of the water and the beach from up high, and the beach is a nice, quiet study area as well.
Yalisa from West Haven, CT
When you think of coming to university of bridgeport. Really sit down with some of the professors and ask questions about your major. They will give the options for your major and make sure on the right path. Also you attend an open house ask questions about university of Bridgeport. There is so much unique information can find out about the school.
Allan from Passaic, NJ
Don't waste your time (or money); complete your general studies at a local community college first! I would say that to ANY student going to any school, but especially one that is close to your community. Make sure you have your financing in order, because you don't want to be stuck looking for scholarships and financial aid after you already start! Take advantage of all the University has to offer and get involved!
Stephanie from Trumbull, CT
Take a tour, meet your future advisers, and settle down with everything this school has to offer for you.
Brian from Yonkers, NY
Dorms are a tad bit small, but you will find that some rooms are bigger than others. They have triples that you can share with two other individuals, and those are bigger. Ask about financial aid packages that they have to help pay for your tuition. THere is also federal work study jobs that you can get.
