| So it has been a full year as a freshmen on a sports team, and I see a few people set on transferring for greener pastures. I even considered it myself. Bryant is quite small, and it's easy to eventually recognize almost all of your class by face. There are lots of opportunities to join clubs and that is an effective way to meet people. honestly, being part of a team is pretty much insta-friends if you are nervous about fitting in. It can be somewhat easy to get lost in the crowd if you are not outgoing or part of a team. Freshmen dorms can also be a good area to make friends and usually people are out and about socializing the first semester. There is LOTS of drinking at bryant, but don't let that intimidate you. Plenty of people choose not to drink/ go out on some weekends, but I will admit it does handicap your social life. there are alsways sober activities by bryant at night. Typical night -> pregame in dorms, listen to music, go to upper classmen suite and play drinking games/ videogames. Go to senior townhouses and find a danceparty! It does get a bit old, but there are options in the city. |
As far as academics, way easier than highschool. I have so much freetime even with sports. I spend a lot of time on my computer. I LOL at my engineer friends, because Bryant will set me up for a pretty good job and there really is not much work. Complete online homework, write papers, attend group projects, study for finals, Boom A's and B's. Of course math might be difficult for some and the higher level courses get harder.
Overall I was convinced for a bit that I could reach higher than Bryant. Sometimes you see students around you and say "wow they are pretty retarded". Don't let it faze you though. I know many people who are getting solid jobs, and I assume that's why you will come here. Unless you can't dress yourself in the morning or fill in a color by number, you will get an internship, and eventually work for a big 4 or something like that. Teachers so far have been good, or if they were bad they made it up by being easy. My only complaint is that it is difficult to find decent single ladies. Yes there are opportunities if you are desperate, but I'm talking solid relationship. The ratio is a killer at dance parties.Anyway, I am pleased with bryant. It can take you great places, especially good grad schools. I know a kid going to Columbia. so come on down if you have survived my wall of text. People who write super negative ones are butthurt by teachers and cannot finish color by numbers. they expect some fucking penn state frat experience or something. Frats blow here, so just be a little more sociable in the beginning even if it is awkward.

| The teachers do not know how to teach. The expect you to know everything before entering class. They are rude and lazy. Most of the evening teachers do not have any background (or business teaching). They are there to collect a paycheck. Absolutely disguisting considering they charge $584 per credit!!! Unbelievable. I'm strongly considering transferring out. Waste of money and time. I don't know how the institution earned a good reputation. They don't even offer online classes. They should consider it since they teachers don't want to teach.Other than the sucky staff, the campus is absolutely breathtaking. |

| Bryant University is absolutely awful!!!. Their professers don't know how to teach at all. Most students learn nothing in these classes. You would expect more for a University that charges $584 per credit. Unbelievable!! Nobody (staff) wants to or knows how to help you either which adds to my frustration. You enter the class paying all this money and come out learning absolutely nothing!!!Average grade that the students will receive from these so-called professors is C. Garbage instructors garbage grades. I don't understand why they don't offer online classes - by the end of the class you realize you are teaching yourself anyway. There are better universities out there, and I plan on transfering out ASAP. Bottom line: don't waste your money. |
