| The University of Bridgeport had many financial difficulties. In fact, it was on the verge of closure. However, the school managed to survive, and it is now flourishing as it once did decades ago. It still has many improvements to make, but the academics, athletics, and facilities are getting better every year. For example, the women's gymnastics team and the men's basketball teams are great Division II programs, and they win many championships. I believe the women's gymnastics team is trying to become a DI program (it may even happen soon). |
Some of the better academic programs at UB include: Dental Hygiene, Chiropractic and Naturopathic programs, Criminal Justice, and International Studies. There are many wonderful professors in these programs who care deeply about their students, and want to see them succeed in life.
The University of Bridgeport still has to make a lot of improvements, but if you are accepted to this school, and if you make the effort to get to know your professors, fellow students, and join clubs, you will be very happy here. In addition, if you excel academically, you may even pursue graduate studies at a top-rankied university, such as Harvard or Yale. Many students from UB have gone on to pursue graduate degrees from Ivy league schools. UB truly is a gem in the rough, and it has the potential to become a great university. I truly believe that UB can only get better.

| PROS: The Dental Hygiene department was always helpful, especially Dr. Meg Zayan and first year instructor Karen Williams. I feel that this may be one of the only truly outstanding programs at UB. Having the distinction of being the first dental hygiene school in the US does help.CONS: my personal opinion- classes I took outside of dental hygiene were not taught by the most qualified teachers. I had a professor that could barely speak English and he was teaching a science course. I feel I had better teachers at a state college. I feel I overpaid for my education, however I am happy with the outcome of my education. Neighborhood is NOT safe. I was afraid nightly when leaving a night class. |

| so first im going to post things that i saw other people post about the school(they are negative)|
-Ignorance is bliss, as people say, and I definitely think that ignoring Bridgeport will be ?bliss.? Let me give you a hint of what kind of people go there. I?m not saying that everyone there is stupid or ignorant, there are quite a few exceptions. Maybe people chose Brideport over a better college because they were offered a full scholarship. I remember back in Jr. High, I used to be friends with a kid named Sean. Looking back into the past, I don?t even know why I even bothered to speak with him. He was your everyday class clown- also not very intelligent- and despised by most of the teachers. I was surprised when he told me that he made it into math honors, but my initial shock soon became disgust after he told me he dropped out because he had to learn harder subjects. Needless to say, he got into a VERY bad college (I won?t say the name because I don?t want to make that college seem worse than it already is). Nowadays, I see him wondering around NYC, dressed in dirty cloths, digging out of trash cans. But the sad part is, when people feels pity towards him and gives him a couple of dollars, he spends it on alcohol and cigarettes. Here?s a warning to the young people out there, if you plan on ruining your life, then go ahead and act like Sean, but if you want to actually succeed in something, put a little effort in your work and you might enter the college of your dreams. I went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and let me tell you, getting in is NOT easy. They only have a 12% acceptance rate, and 97% of people enrolling have been in the top 10% of their Highschool class.it really is the WORST COLLEGE IN AMERICA LOOK IT UP!!!!!!! IT SAYS ITS THE WORST COLLEGE IN AMERICA. UB struggled to stay accredited. I met my life best friend there dont get me wrong, but the school itself is just horrible like so bad. When you apply for a job they are not going to hire you becaue u went to this school. If you fucekd up go to a community college and try harder and then apply to a better school. your paying alot of money but u get a sucky education. an RA raped a student and was allowed back to the school, a fetus was found in the trash. KIDS WHO DID REALLY BAD IN SCHOOL GET IN THIS SCHOOL IS BULLSHIT ITS SO FUCKIN GHETTO im half black not trying to be racist but the whole fuckin school is all black, or come from india, its so rundown ITS BARELY ACCREDITED DONT GOO
