If your a Disabled student or a Non-traditionalNot so brightPreMed and Medical
If your a Disabled student or a Non-traditional age student, please for god sake and the sake of your wallet avoid SCSU like the Plague. SCSU dose nothing for Disabled students and for Non-Traditional Students. SCSU is the most cliquish University I have ever seen. If you ever seen cliques in High school, then SCSU's is a high schools version of a clique. If your not in with Student Government or Campus Greek, your a nobody on campus. Your treated like a nobody on campus. One thing about Southern is that they change their requirements so often, that no one graduates from Southern in 4 yrs, it's more like 5 to 6 yrs and vast majority become Super Seniors at Southern. One thing I have seen out of Southern is that people are closed minded and only care for those who are in their group such as if you work for housing or student life, your well known and popular. If your not in the popular group, your an outcast in their eyes. For those who are thinking or even considering about going to Southern, Be very careful, because this school has recently be hit with a sexual harassment suit and even a female student has been sexually assaulted on campus. If you want a Real University experience and feel as if your part of the university, part of the campus and be accepted, Go somewhere else. Southern is the most Cliquish State University in the State of Connecticut

Southern is honestly just like ANY OTHER COLLEGE.Average
Southern is honestly just like ANY OTHER COLLEGE. They have classes that aren't counted in your credits but is a requirement. They have a lot of extra curricular activities there and on weekends the schools pretty dead since people leave campus for work or whatever. It's diverse and you may meet people that isn't your crowd. Don't waste your time with only partying believe me I know it's great but, not worth partying all the time, but can be a good stress release. There are some parties every week or some event. The faculty can be somewhat helpful it honestly all depends on your needs. OH BUT STAY AWAY FROM THE BOOKSTORE UNLESS IT'S AN ABSOLUTE MUST. PRICES ARE CRAZY. I honestly kind of wished I went to a community college first but then I wouldn't have met some cool people. Southern isn't all that bad, everyone has different experiences, some teachers are crazy and a pain, LEARN TIME MANAGEMNT so you wont have breakdowns like me. Make your own deadlines so you won't do assignments last minute.

If you want to be able to talk to your professors after class and have them know your name I would strongly recommend Southern.
