Sacred Heart University is feeling good about being named to Forbes’ list, America’s Top Colleges.

With an all-star faculty, state-of-the-art facilities and an abundance of programs for students to select, SHU is on top of its game.

Sacred Heart recently enrolled its most academically talented class in the University’s history. The class of 2022’s average high school GPA is 3.5, and more students are participating in extracurricular activities, including athletics (club and intramural sports), performing arts, Greek life and volunteer programs.
