FAIRFIELD, Conn. – A team from Consumer Reports was on site at Sacred Heart University this week to do research for an upcoming article in the magazine. The article will focus on scales that provide information beyond weight, such as body fat, water, bone mass, etc. To that end, the team visited SHU’s Life & Sport Analysis Clinic to have their body fat tested in the University’s Bod Pod. They will compare those results with the results they get on various “smart scales.”
FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Sacred Heart University has entered into an agreement to purchase 150 acres of land on the Housatonic River in Milford. The purchase includes the 18-hole Great River Golf Course and a 32,000-square-foot clubhouse. The purchase price is $6 million, and the land is located only 15 minutes away from SHU’s main campus. We expect the sale to be completed in December. “With this purchase of land, we have an unprecedented opportunity to more than double the University’s acreage,” said Michael Kinney, senior vice president for Finance & Administration at SHU.
