it was nice.

olivia

University of Connecticut-Stamford does not have the regular feel of a college campus. There is one building for class and one building for the dorms. A total of about 600-800 students live on-campus. Although there are no sports teams to watch or join, there is a YMCA across the street from the dorms (in Hotel 0 Degrees) that give UCONN students a free membership if their Husky Card is provided. In addition, there is no Greek life, but plenty of opportunities to go into Downtown Stamford to bars, the movie theatre, the mall, or even NYC with just an hour long train ride.

Jennifer

I have no regrets in coming to this university. There is always a great environment wherever I go, and there are always fun activities that we can join and meet new people. I also im grateful for the professors who work in the university because they are understanding and very helpful.

Malaika

Nice school. Great to be in and I really like the metropolitan feel of the city. There is always something going on, whether it is inside the dorms or out on the street. The shuttle was a great addition after the dorms were added. Make the trip worth while.

    The fall 2020 acceptance rate for University of Connecticut-Stamford is 57%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I could go back to my high school years in Germany, I would tell myself this: "You've done well so far. However, you are too sick of school and immature to go right to college. Don't waste your time on an apprenticeship either. Just because everybody's doing it doesn't mean you need to. Unless you know what you want (which you don't), don't waste 3 years of boredom for crappy pay. Go travel the world. It's the best way to learn and the fastest way to grow up. Don't worry about the money. You'll figure it out when you're there. Going to Australia for a year is one of the best ideas you'll ever have, so go for it and don't let others talk you out of it. It will show you what life's really like. You'll see how tough it can be, but you'll also learn that you can do WHATEVER YOU WANT. Then go study in the U.S. You'll get an excellent education minus the military style of German schools. Embrace your freedom, but don't forget about your roots".

    At my previous school most students just went to class and back home. It was hard to make new friends in the 10 minute breaks between classes. At UConn, however, there are a ton of student activities you can participate in. This is the best and fastest way to meet like-minded people.

    First of tuition is low and I live close by, therefore I am able to go from my house to school and vice versa. It is not a big school, but since I went to a small Catholic high school it was an easier transition. I am able to talk with the teachers and ask them questions during office hours. Also the shool is in downtown Stamford, therefore I am able to hang out with my friends by going to the movies or eating at a restaurant.
