This school is an absolute JOKE.Quite BrightOther

I am from Rhode Island, and this school has done nothing but stress me out and find ways to screw me out of money. Most recently, I had to pay $50, do 5 hours of community service and lost internet access for a month because I had a router in my room WHEN THE ROUTER OUTSIDE MY DOOR NEVER EVEN WORKED!!! This was a first offense, total joke. Makes a lot of sense that for trying to get my school work done, I have no internet to do homework for a month...All they care about is screwing you out of money. There is NOTHING fun to do on campus, all the residence hall advisors do nothing, the food sucks. The area outside the campus is absolutely horrible, you shouldn't need to carry around a button that alerts campus security if something happens to you. (they really give you these at the beginning of the school year) If you're thinking about attending this school, don't. Or commute, because the only half way decent thing about the school is the education. However, if you're going to pay 35,000 dollars a year or more for a school, you can find many other schools that are less concerned with screwing you out of money and time. I'm leaving after this semester, I'm completely done with this ridiculous school.

This school is a profit-turning RIP-OFF.Quite BrightNutrition
This school is a profit-turning RIP-OFF. I don't know about the on-campus courses, but I STRONGLY URGE smart people who want their money's worth not to even consider this school as a fall-back. The online nutrition masters program was a joke and I withdrew after five weeks, but by then 80% of tuition was already due. I'll briefly explain how one of the courses worked in the online program: you log into discussions online once a week, answer a question or two and comment on other students' answers. There is no teaching session that takes place before the discussion questions are due, just reading you do on your own with assigned textbooks. Then there is a biweekly exam. The "professor" might outline what topics and vocabulary in the chapters to go over before you take the exam. That's it. You could buy an interactive CD-ROM study guide and administer yourself the tests instead of throwing away thousands of dollars into such a bullshit program. Student services is also very slow to respond to needs and requests. I took a chance on the online program, trying to be more open-minded and feeling reassured by the fact that it was accredited, but poor quality is not worth buying into period. COMPLETE waste of money. This is not education, this is the true definition of "diploma mill". I wouldn't take a second look at anyone who graduated with a degree from this sorry excuse for higher education.

The School of Business at the University ofNot so brightBusiness - Management and Administration
The School of Business at the University of Bridgeport is great. The Business school offers a diverse staff who is always more than willing to assist you in whatever you need. All of the professors speaks English. In the Business school, taking classes back at home for the summer is NO PROBLEM in means of transferring the credits back to UB. The advisers within the School of Business encourage students to continue to learn over the summer! College is what YOU make it. Make the connections within your classes with your professors and express that your are excited to learn everyday and positive outcomes will come to you. Being that UB is a small school, it is fairly easy to network with your professors. Your professors are the people who 'know some one, who knows someone' who can get you that desired future internship or job. It is fairly easy to get involved on campus as well. Again, college is what YOU make it. Granted, UB isn't the most 'fabulous' school in the United States and it is NOT your stereotypical university that you see in the movies, however there are a lot of opportunities here, but it is up to YOU to make those opportunities happen for you!
