I visited Sacred Heart University this past week and was welcomed with open arms by the Admissions staff and everyone that I came across. They have 3900 undergrads and guaranty housing for all 4 years. This is a young school, only 51 years old, but other than the more contemporary buildings you see on campus you would never know it. The university has highly developed programs, such as their nursing program and soon to be Physicians Assistant program.
They have a 5 years Education program where the first 4 years are undergrad and the 5th year to earn your Masters is free (yes, I said free!). Their 4 colleges are Arts and Sciences, Business. Education and the College of Health Professions. They have a nursing program that is highly regarded and more competitive to get accepted to than their other majors. Key majors include Business, Education, Communications and Health Professions. They have Fashion Merchandising as well. Interviews are highly recommended so if you’re applying here be sure to set this up.
Overall I was very impressed with Sacred Heart and would recommend it to any of my students that are a good match.
