BRIDGEPORT - The University of Bridgeport community is reacting to the arrest of Faisal Shahzad in connection with Saturday's failed car bombing of Times Square.
Shahzad received degrees from the school in 2000 and 2005.
One of Shahzad's former advisers tells News 12 Connecticut he was a fairly unremarkable student. Assistant Dean Ward Thrasher says many of the faculty doesn't even remember Shahzad.
Meanwhile, students on campus are worried about what the arrest will mean for the school's reputation.
The university did release a statement saying it doesn't condone acts of violence and terrorism and works to combat racial and ethnic prejudices.
