WHAT I LIKED

Would not recommend the computer science program, but the school has many other options that are great. Such as the nursing program.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Be aware of the cost. It is a private school. Many state grants will not apply here.

WHAT I LIKED

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.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

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.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Commuter life, parking sucks.

5.0

WHAT I LIKED

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.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

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.
