Sacred Heart University offered eight programs to incoming freshmen prior to the start of the academic year to familiarize them with their peers, school and community. The week-long programs provided the students with life-changing experiences before they even sat down for their first class. The Office of Volunteer Programs & Service Learning (VPSL), the School of Communication, Media & the Arts (SCMA), the Theatre Arts Program, the Jack Welch College of Business, the Student Success Center, the Dance Program, the College of Health Professions and the College of Nursing all presented programs.
Sacred Heart University is feeling good about being named to Forbes’ list, America’s Top Colleges. The business magazine rated 650 colleges and universities in the U.S. on a number of variables. Among the most significant were post-graduation success, student experience, debt, academic success and graduation rate.
Participants in Sacred Heart University’s Global Health Programs are working with the Southern Connecticut chapter of Dress A Girl to distribute dresses that volunteers are sewing for girls in disaster-stricken countries.
