Why did you decide to go to this school?


Financial Reasons, Broad Range of Majors, Excellent Academic Programs, Dedicated Faculty and a diverse community


I chose to go to Uconn because I saw opportunity. I saw a place where I could meet new people, go to challenging classes, and network with other people in my degree program. I saw a chance to graduate from a school that impresses people with an education that was worth while to me. Uconn is a place where you can actually build all the character you need to carry you into your next steps of life.


For me, deciding on a school came down to a few important factors: size, their undeclared program, and whether they had nice sweatshirts. In other words, I'm the type of person that can be happy anywhere - it's really just what I make of it. UConn is a place for every type of student, and is big enough to fit thousands of different personalities. That is something I absolutely loved, and could clearly see, the second I came to tour here. Because there are so many options for getting involved, meeting people, and classes, I knew this was the type of place I'd want to be for four years. I also came into college without any idea of what I was doing, so I wanted to be somewhere where the undeclared/undecided program was great. UConn has an amazing group of faculty geared towards helping undeclared students explore their many options. They're all so supportive, and it was easy for me to see that just from a few presentations. The size may be a little terrifying for some people, but I think it's great. Yeah, the first few weeks can be a bit overwhelming when trying to figure out where your classes are. But, you get used to it. And, once you start getting yourself involved in things you love, the campus will seem a lot smaller - a lot more like the community it sets out to be. As I've said before, I could tell from the start that UConn was the place for me. There are never ending amounts of options for students, and the faculty are a fantastic support service for the students.


I live only an hour away, in-state tuition is hard to beat, and it is consistently ranked as one of the top 20 Public schools in the nation


Honestly, because my father went here, and it was much cheaper than the other schools I wanted to go to.
