What is your overall opinion of this school?

I’m so glad I went to UConn, there are so many opportunities to get involved here that I wouldn’t have found anywhere else. It’s also a top research school and I was able to work in two different labs during my time there, which made my experience even more meaningful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The UConn campus teems with life and is easy to navigate. The academics are stimulating but no too stressful, which leaves students ample time to do activities they enjoy: such as intramural sports, yoga, pet therapy, or frequenting the various cafes, art museums or cultural centers we have here. The professors and student body are both welcoming. I feel safe in all my endeavors. Sporting and Honors Community events rally us together, and the recreational facilities are well-kept and enriching. However, I feel that the UConn community should devote a bit more time to students' mental health and in all honesty, the food quality; it isn't prison-quality, but for $30k a semester as an out-of-state student, middle school cafeteria food is sub-par.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love UConn!!! Our facilities are good and are always being updated. The professors are super nice and always willing to help when they can. I find that there are plenty of clubs and activities to join for every sort of interest. It's a little hard to find parking and the scholarship/financial aid situation is difficult as well, but it doesn't hinder the experience at the school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UConn is a fun but competitive college that provides its students with several facilities. It encourages students to be diligent and maintain high grades while also participating in community events and enjoying their college life. Students are able to take several classes for their major and challenge themselves while still maintaining high grades. The students can be seen studying at the library at Storrs in groups during exam season or individually. Although students study hard, they make sure not to miss out on their college experience by attending events on campus or by going on late night runs to Insomnia Cookies with friends on the weekend. Uconn provides its students with all of their necessities for each religious and ethnic group of students living on campus. For example, the local Husky Pizza takes orders that are Halal or permissible for Muslim students living on campus at Storrs. It also has a church, mosque, and other places of worship to make the students feel safe and protected while being on campus. There are even clubs organized by students of each ethnic or religious group including Hillel for Jewish students, PCUC by the Pakistani students at UConn, Mexican Student Association, etc. As a result, UConn is a diverse and competitive college which allows its students to persevere and succeed in their studies while also enjoying their life on campus. They can do this all by feeling at home and keeping in touch with their culture and religion but still being exposed to different people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a great place but there is a huge lack of communication between higher-ups and students. Every school has problems (location, housing, transportation, food) which could be remedied with low cost but the university and it’s students often fail to communicate and listen effectively.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Connecticut is an extraordinary school. It has given me fantastic opportunities and lessons, and I cannot be more happy with it. The student facilities are the best of any school I have ever seen, and the systems set up on campus are fantastic. There is a lot of potential for students who want to attend this school, and I fully recommend it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The atmosphere is welcoming. I feel safe on campus even when I'm walking back to my dorm at night. I think it's a good college and the academics are challenging yet satisfying when you complete the course. The campus is big, however, once you know the campus it's quite easy to get around. Also, make sure to familiarize yourself with the bus schedule because it is super helpful in the wintertime and also you can use it if you don't wan't to walk across the whole campus on foot. One thing UConn has taught me is that the wind is no joke. During the winter, when walking to class please make sure to wear a hat or anything to cover your face because the wind is pretty hardcore (crying while walking to class is not uncommon).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Connecticut isn't a terrible school but it also is not the best. UConn refuses to get rid of professors that have proven time and time again that they are terrible and their only solution is put them on probation for years but not all professors are terrible. Even though there are different living options (traditional, suite, apartment), each living situation is is not equal which is not fair. For example, someone living in a worse traditional living condition has to pay the same price as someone living in a significantly better traditional living condition which doesn't seem right. UConn loves to renovate many things on this campus and build new buildings but complain about how broke the university is. Improving the campus would not be a problem if there was money for all of these renovations instead of the students having to constantly having to pay for it. The dining hall food is not that great too but if you have money there are a lot of restaurants near campus that you can walk to or have delivery. Some positives is that there are many majors and minors to choose from and so many resources to help you along the way in your college career. Also, there is a lot of organizations and clubs to join if you wish.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While attending University of Connecticut, I can honestly say that I was able to grow at a personal and educational level. From the beautiful campus, to the wide variety of courses offered, UCONN makes a coveted university to attend. I met, what I consider, three of my best friends. People who I can truly have deep and meaningful conversations. People who I've traveled with to different parts of the world because they are share my same interests. This was possible through getting involved in the many extracurricular activities that UCONN offers, and interactive gatherings held on the floor level of your dorm. Having majored in biology, I can attest to the wonderful quality of science teachers throughout the campus. Each one of them, although tough, pushed me to be more accountable of myself. For the people who like to have fun, this is definitely a fun school to go to. You will not go a night where there is not something going on. Whether it is a house/dorm party, or a movie night, or arts and crafts night, you can find something for every kind of liking. Many people also enjoy the new world renowned gym and recreational center located by the center of campus, as well as the rock climbing facility. Overall, UCONN is a great campus for someone who is looking to be social and acquire a one of a kind education. There is always something for everyone to do. You cannot go wrong with it. Go Huskies!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am still trying to figure out why I can't get a reference from anybody at this institution. I am still wondering why I went in the first place. It was due to a big F word: FUNDING. I was fully funded and granted a stipend. And I also thought that I would gain good work experience as a graduate assistant. These factors led me to make one of the best decisions of my life, yet I still can't manage to find a reference from this school. It is apparent that I might have been discriminated against by Faculty and staff. It was obvious by how my peers managed to outperform me even when I knew for certain that my work was just as good if not better. It was obvious when I had them give me their scores and final grades and then I compared them to mine. I had to settle my suspicion. So maybe UConn isn't that great of a school if you want to be treated fairly. The people here are a little bit discriminatory and unfair. However, I managed to graduate nonetheless and I'm still wondering where I'm going to work thanks to a possible blacklisting that occurred. So if that's the case, I was not that wise after all. I know people who were blacklisted from Princeton too, so it happens. But believe me , if you want to get what you pay for, come to UCONN!
