I like how small the campus is and how you have the ability to become close with your professors.
I dont like how it is hard to make friends if you are not in greek life or on a sports team.
Would not recommend the computer science program, but the school has many other options that are great. Such as the nursing program.
Be aware of the cost. It is a private school. Many state grants will not apply here.
Even as a commuter I feel welcomed to the campus. The academics are challenging but set you up for success. There are a lot of possibilities for extracurriculars, social events, and academics.
The only issue I have had as a commuter is that parking can be challenging at times.
I like that everyone holds the door for everyone and that everyone is super friendly.
Commuter life, parking sucks.
College was a difficult time with obstacles in my personal life that made completing my degree very difficult. Countless faculty members and professors went above and beyond to support me and help me finish out my bachelor's. I wouldn't have been able to get through it without SHU's support.
I personally learn better in small class settings and I enjoyed the sense of community had in a smaller college. however, this is not the right environment for everyone.
