University of Connecticut Top Questions

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?


Not a lot of transportation for out of state students.


I think UCONN accepts too many students and as a result it is difficult to get the on-campus housing you want, as well as get into classes you want.


It is located in the center of the woods. The only thing in Storrs and its surrounding areas is woods and other schools.


There are a few things that I don't like about my school. First of all, I don't like the harsh winters and the commute to classes. It is far to walk and the winter here in Connecticut is cold. Another thing that I don't like is the large classrooms. I feel like some of the classes are too big creating a distance between students and professors. Lastly I do not like the differences in the dining halls. It does not make sense to have one dining hall to be really good and another one be awful.


There is not alot of support to people in Greek Life. Also alot of kids don't get good academic advising


It's easy to get lost in the shuffle if you let yourself, given how many people are here. One can simply cruise by in their major and never truly experience what is offered, by virtue of intimidation of how much there is and how large the school can be., which is an unfortunate possibility. This applies to both extracurriculers and to interactions with professors and faculty, both of which can be an great asset and inredible experience to be a part of and to work with, and is something many will never utilize.


For me, the worst thing has been the financial aid I received. My family can not contribute much, if anything, to my education and so it all falls on me to pay for. I feel as though I should have received more aid based on my need as well as my merit.


The campus is beautiful but it is large, especialy at 8am.


There aren't enough recreational facilities and the ones they have are too cramped. Also the housing process is bad along with the actual housing buildings, including the dining hall food.


The worst thing about Uconn, to me, is where it's located. It's out in the middle of nowhere, in the country so there's not much going on around Uconn at all. The nearest city is over half an hour away, so the only thing to do pretty much is party on campus.


UConn is a big school and even though the staff tries to help it is easy to get lost. One time or another everyone will like just a number around here.


There are a lot of athletes who are not as work oriented and prefer to party all week.


The worst thing is that some of the advisors tell students to take too many courses, or courses that should not be taken at the same time in the same semester.
