What is your overall opinion of this school?

I spent one semester and completed two courses in the graduate nursing program. I received As in both courses and felt like I learned a lot. I dropped out and transferred to another university due to it being a very unsupportive, unprofessional environment. With two bachelor's degrees and a nursing job of 20 years, quitting was not my usual style. One week before a discussion post was due and one and one half weeks before a major project was due, Professor Duhamel sent a memo to the class that said, "please note the changes to the syllabus." The post was now due the next day rather than in one week and the project was now due in three days rather than in a week and a half. In a panic, I emailed her and said this was impossible. It was not until this point that she admitted she made a mistake...and that we should have caught on and spoken up. Well I had not caught on. I trusted the syllabus. Go figure. She said she would grant me the original dates but it would mess up the grading system as it went beyond what was supposed to be the end of the term. There was no apology or acknowledgment that this sudden change would cause undue stress. I turned the project in three days after the new due date and four days before the original due date (that I had been granted). I made an error in setting the video for her viewing. She emailed me and told me to correct it immediately or the grading system would be screwed up. When I reminded her I had been granted the original due date, she lectured me about how the class was at fault for not catching the mistake. When I went to Professor Breda, the head of the department, she responded by what sounded like a pitch she gives to new students about the program and advanced nursing. She kept avoiding the topic. Even upon my inquiry, she refused to acknowledge any injustice I had encountered. She told me she could get me a new advisor (as my advisor was Prof Duhamel) but that I would still have to take the nursing theory course with her. When I asked her if I could take nursing theory at another university and transfer the credits, she said no. After dropping out of the program, I decided to take the issue further up the chain, hoping corrective action would take place for the sake of other students. In a telephone conversation with Professor Thompson, the head dean, she not only refused to acknowledge I had been wronged, but gave me serious attitude repeating several times the phrase, "but you're not a student here anymore." She missed the point. Really, all I wanted was something like, "The behavior you describe is not commiserate with the values of the university. I will investigate the matter as this is not a way to treat students. I'm sorry we lost you as you were a good student." I received nothing of the sort from either dean.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

To be honest, I only attended this school for two reasons: I received the biggest financial aid package from them and if I did not go here I would have never found out about Sikorsky (an Aerospace company) or even found an interest in wanting to build helicopters and jets for the military. I personally do not drink nor smoke so I do not have any interest in partying. Academically, I believe the College of Engineering, Technology and Architecture has a lot of building to do within the program. You have professors that are not available for office hours, you have professors that do not present the information clearly and get upset when students ask questions (I can say from personal experience) and you have professors that I believe care about the students future. Now all of the professors may cre about the success of their success but the question is how many of those professors actually produce or send forth successful students to the next class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If I could give an honest review about my University, I would have to say that it’s a very diverse school and I feel like that is amazing because students get to learn about other people and their culture, and one thing that we do not tolerate is judgment. The University of Hartford is a very welcoming place, all sort of people live on the campus or commute there. The University of Hartford is the place where it has a little bit of everything for each student who arrives on campus, there is a great variety of careers to major in as well. Our mascot is Howie the hawk, we go super big when it comes down to sports, it’s something we take pride in, especially the athletes. A good thing about the University of Hartford is that although it’s a very big campus, there is always something to do. There are always events happening around the complexes, where students reside at, and it’s a great amazing benefit and opportunity for students to go out and relax their hard working studious selves. Another great benefit is that Friday through Sunday there is a shopping shuttle that takes students to main stops for students to go and do their errands or just fun adventures with friends. Something that I dislike about the University of Hartford is the dreary cafeteria also known as Commons. The breakfast is a daily routine in which becomes mind-numbing overtime. My Caesar salad consists of lifeless wilted leaves with cold tasteless pieces of chicken and the dressing that gives me pimples overnight. The food that is served is usually fast food and having too much french-fries, burgers and pizza get dull. Although there are many other options of food such as cereal, fruits, salad, and soup, over the period of time, it becomes uninteresting and unexciting except for when it’s pasta or sushi night. Even if I complain about commons’ food, I am grateful for having food, but why pay so much for something that can have an impact on your health? The University of Hartford provides other places for food such as Subway, Moes, and the famous night dining place, where students hang around to have a fun time, Hawk Nest. The University of Hartford is meant for early birds and night owls, it’s the place where everything keeps innovating and bringing new opportunities to students everyday. It's the place where you come in contact with barriers but each student has the grit to keep succeeding. If ever looking for assistance, people are willing to help as much as they can.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It could be better. But it’s not that bad of a school. I don’t really leave my room much because campus is boring. I’ve never been to a basketball game or any school events for that matter because they’re usually not that great. If they did more fun fund raisers and did things to grab students attention more the school would probably be more unified and more fun

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Hartford is a great university, it provides its students with the resources we require to learn and grow. The faculty is extremely nice and professional and while the school is small, it is big enough that there are always new places to discover.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Hartford is my top choice of colleges because they have such a diverse learning community. The campus is the perfect size and they have so many opportunities for students. The campus has so many resources for students to learn and get involved in the community. The class sizes are small so students can get a better learning environment to talk to their professors one on one.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Hartford always has something new to introduce to their students. When we, as students, have needs they accommodate to the best of their abilities. For example, there is a large group of vegetarian/vegans throughout campus. We were concerned that there weren't as many options for us, so we sat down as a collective with the school to discuss and voice our opinions. Within in a week or two the school had made more food options for us to eat. The university also has a talent of never being boring, there are always activities and shows to go see. These allow students to support and be apart of as many clubs as they would like. When looking at the students it is obvious how much diversity is within the campus. This allows for exposure to different cultures and new experiences with the people you meet. Like any community there is always room for growth. There are some gaps within the community that we are trying to bridge together. The fact that we are always trying to come together and make a difference shows how much of a community we continue to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

An extreme price tag for a below average education, pay Harvard prices for high school classes. There is a sense of apathy in the classrooms, as if the students attending are there because their parents forced them. Every year I was there the administration informed us the teachers were forgoing raises to keep cost down which really made you question where all the money was being spent, it clearly was not on the campus which is drab 50's style.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy the overall experience very much. I'm a commuter student so I can only go by what my classmates say but, I am really enjoying my time here. The tuition is expensive but, the classrooms are decent-sized, the staff is helpful and the facility is almost always open for us to work. There's lot of clubs and activities available although my work schedule doesn't allow it.
