The baseball team is lead by a head coach who does not care about professionalism or player responsibility. When concerns are brought to the attention of the athletic director, he comes up weak and disingenuous excuses to cover up for the head coach's moral and ethical deficiencies. Besides enabling the head coach to undermine the development of the players both on and off the field, the athletic directror has shown that UConn Avery Point has little interest in enforcing UConn's ideals and mission statement.
It is clear that this university does not teach, or value, the qualities that are necessary to be successful in life. I'm not sure why anyone would want their son or daughter to go there, or make donations to UConn Avery Point (especially to the baseball program).
If interested, I have a full discussion about the unprofessional and irresponsible behavior that the head coach allowed while coaching the Danbury Westerners this past summer on my channel where I discuss in detail why, I believe, the head coach is unfit to lead the Avery Point baseball team.
It’s a great place and connections can be made quite easily. Most professors are amazing and understanding, however some professors are basically the opposite. The campus is stunning and right by the ocean, pretty much everyone is nice and welcoming. Also Morts cafe is very good and has quality food.
Personally, I have not had a great experience. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are very few classes on campus and students mainly do their work from home. I can’t blame the teachers for their inability to adapt to the online scene, but many of my professors take up to a week to respond to emails, as well as grade work. I blame the school itself and the administration for not correctly preparing the teachers. I have one teacher who is pretty understanding of how students aren’t adapting well to distant learning but the rest of them treat it like we are still in class and have the ability to talk to them. Many classes are almost impossible to learn online and teachers don’t understand that. If the school would allow more in person classes and trained teachers to adapt to distant learning I would have no complaints. Overall the campus is great but I haven’t even been there yet. I have faith in the school but they have a lot of work to do.
This school offers small class sizes and professors that are almost always available available (as long as they know how to use the internet). The largest class size is about 100 kids and the smallest is around 5. In comparison to the main campus of UConn up at Storrs, classes vary on being harder or easier. Typically classes are easier due to the more personal relationships professors gain with their students, but other times the classes students get low grades in at Avery Point, they would have received very well up at Storrs. The campus is isolated and offers no on campus housing, and has one school cafe with has two or three special items every day of the week, and gets boring after a semester. The campus is tiny and the student population is smaller than most high school. This can lead to this campus feeling less like a college and more like a high school. If you are looking for a party campus this is no the right place to go, with often times, less than a party a week.

"Go to college!" It seems like college is only for those who play sports or are 'smarter than you' but you can go to college too. Meet with Mrs. Carter ask her what options you have. She knows you better than you believe. Apply to everything she tells you to especially the Hill Scholars Program. It is the best thing that could happen to you. Every minute of your time spent in that honors program will be worth it. They will become like another family to you; always there even after everyone graduates and head out on their own.
You will have so many opportunities that you never dreamed of for your self. Get involved on campus it is the best way to make friends and learn what you are capable of. Stick to your deadlines, both educational and personal ones, you will regret it if you don't.
Most importantly be your self. Mom and Pop are proud of you just for deciding to attent college and pay your on way with out asking them. You may feel left behind because it will take you longer to reach your goals than originallly planned, but you will reach them.
I consider the worse part to be that their are people that don't even consider my school Uconn. That on the place mat of a popular resturant up the road they have a map and they don't even recgonize my school. That is the worst part because I am as much of a Husky as the students who attend the storrs campus.
My school is best known for its' strong marine science/maritime studies program. We have a beautiful campus located a stone's throw away from the beach, with a gorgeous view and great scenery. The campus is extremely small, but it's fun that everybody knows everybody and all my professors have been great.
When I tell my friends about Avery Point I start by talking about the location of the school. I also mention Paul's Pasta Shop, but I also talk about how the classes are relatively small and how all of the people in administration are helpful with any questions a student may have.
My classmates are my friends.
Somebody looking for a more intimate learning environment, who has a strong interest in maritime studies or a subject along those lines. It's also a great option if you're a local student who wants to complete their gen eds here and then transfer to another campus (most students stay for 2 years then transfer up to Storrs.)
