Overall

University of Connecticut is a fantastic school to be a part of. I am an out of state student and University of Connecticut made it fairly easy to be able to be comfortable in my new surroundings. I love how there are over 300 clubs and activities to become a part of and every semester there is a involvement fair where every club advertises their organization. In addition, I admire how the school is diverse and people are open to befriending people outside of their race.

Academics

my workload can be a lot due to wanting to become a doctor in the near future, but the professors challenge their students and want their students to open up their minds. The class sizes are relatively big at first (for the general courses) but as you start taking more core courses that pertain to your major the class sizes get smaller and smaller. University of Connecticut encourages students to do well in college by having Q centers which is free tutoring for courses that you are having specific trouble with. In addition, there is the career services center where they guide you in the right direction towards your goal. There are numerous support systems to lean on at UCONN.

College Life

There are many things to do at UCONN. UCONN will make you break out of your shell and interact with people. In addition, the campus is safe at all parts of the day and if you do not feel safe then there are policeman around all the time and emergency stations. There is always something going on at UCONN and we take pride in that we are able to have a lot of activities for students to do.

Overall

Overall, I love UCONN. I had a great experience at UCONN. I came to UCONN into the ACES program and I found that this program was extremely helpful for aiming you in the right direction with your academics.

Academics

Some classes are offered by multiple professors. I think that there should be a standard for these classes so everyone has the same chance to do well. Some professions can be extremely harder than others for the same class

College Life

The social atmosphere is pretty good. I wish that UCONN offered more to do on the weekends since there is not a ton around campus, The late night on Friday is a great idea but the lines are always way too long and there is not enough to do to draw more people to the event. The athletics are fun but the lottery system for basketball is corrupt since alot of people buy the tickets just to resell them. There is definitely a club for everyone and if there isn't you can create one fairly easily.

Overall

Uconn offers overwhelming amounts of opportunities to its students. With over 550 student clubs and organizations it's impossible to not find something of interest. Getting involved is a MUST on this campus as it serves as a way to shrink the large campus to a smaller community and helps students find their niche and friend groups. There is a great community feel with a lot of school spirit. Uconn students are proud Huskies, which is fitting as their is much to be proud of.

Academics

Academics vary between majors. I was a very strong student in high school and find the coursework for my major, Biological Sciences, to be extremely challenging. Most large lecture halls are medium sized, 100-200 students. Professors vary, I've had awesome professors and professors who were sub-par, it really depends on the class. The sciences and psychology are some of the most popular majors.

College Life

Downtown Storrs is currently being built which will provide students with shopping and restaurants right on campus. The social scene rests of the campuses 3 bars, house parties, and fraternity parties. The nightlife is average but can be fun once you are 21. Athletics are HUGE. Tailgating for football is a huge part of the social scene during the fall and the basketball games are heavily attended. The campus rarely has any safety issues -- there is no surrounding town or city. Anyone on campus is essentially a student or faculty which makes students feel very safe.

Overall

I loved UConn. There is so much to do, so my advice would be to get involved. Join intramural/club sports, student union groups, etc. or pledge a sorority/fraternity...Meet as many people as possible! Also- buy season tickets for football/basketball games!!!

Academics

UConn offers a huge variety of programs. In most majors the class sizes start pretty big (think large lecture halls), but many classes have a weekly discussion class that goes along with it (about 20 people) where you can ask questions and get more individual attention. As you get more into your major and away from General Education classes the class size tends to get smaller. I never felt overwhelmed by the workload, and I always felt as though I could go to my professors for help if needed.

College Life

Weekend activities include: sporting events, parties/on campus bars (for those 21+), Late Nights at the Student Union. There is a club/organization for anything you can think of (sports, music, leadership, racial/ethnic groups, etc.). Athletics are excellent. Participate at any level (club or intramural) or watch (Football and Basketball games were my favorite to attend!) Campus safety is strong. UConn police are all over on the weekends, and blue emergency lights are scattered about just in case.

Overall

I was able to walk away with a degree that is well respected in the Job Market and helped me secure a job soon after graduating. UConn was challenging, entertaining and fun. I currently have my Bachelors Degree in Economics and I am pursuing my MBA.

Academics

UConn has a large selection of programs for students to enroll in. There are a mix of great professors and lousy ones, but with a little research you can easily avoid the less preferred teachers. The "CORE" classes are usually large lecture halls, but once you get into your Major you will find yourself in much smaller classes.

College Life

There is a good mix of clubs and organizations on campus. The campus has a good presence of safety officers to make students feel safe. UConn is rich in Athletic History and competes for National Championships in many sports which makes athletic events exciting to attend.
