Mercedes - 11/17/2023

I love the small classes as it helps me focus and learn quicker. Unfortunately it’s so expensive as a student of a single mom, that i find myself stressing about my bill all semester. If you miss a payment they shut down blackboard and won’t let you submit assignments. If you miss a payment in Dec they send you a letter to move out. We always end up paying it off, but it takes my mom a little more time. My grades would be much better if this stress wasn’t hanging over my head every day…

school is great


I have already gone though my first year, and it was certainly nothing short of amazing! I have met some amazing people, and I tried to attend as many events as possible in order to be involved on campus. I also challenged myself in my academic endeavors. Every professor that I have had has been incredibly supportive and excellent, and they have allowed me to use my creative instincts in order to thrive in my academic setting. I couldn't be happier with my choice of attending UHart. Being a part of the Hawks family has made me realize even more-so than before, that I am right where I am supposed to be, and I am positive that I chose the right major. I can't wait to start back up again in the fall, and reconnect with my second home in Hartford!


School for me is three parts. Work, Play, and Lodging. As a Marketing major, I find the work to be moderately challenging (of course relatively). We are also AACSB accredited which is a major plus. As for unwinding, Hartford does great job of making you feel like there's always something going on with a campus-centered life. Lodging as a freshman feels a bit contained but after freshman year the options open up. This is a great school to get your education and other needs. As with anywhere on Earth, be mindful of where you go when you leave your campus/home.
