5 College Junior

Athletics: Sports are definitely on the rise on campus because there is a lot of surfacing talent!

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Truthfully I don't know too much about the Greek life but it seems to be a great atmosphere and something I'd consider joining for the experience of being a big part of the community.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I like how roommates are matched and how nice the buildings are. Some are nicer than others.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: It's definitely becoming more and more of a strict campus which is a good thing because it must be kept in control when there are that many students.

5 College Junior

Facilities: The campus is huge, and has everything you need right on it. You can go almost anywhere for a study session.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: All I ever truthfullly see off campus is Dunkin Donuts.

5 College Junior

Academics: Professors are wonderful. I've had the pleasure to meet some truly great and interesting professors who really care about students and campus safety. The curriculum is also great withone disadvantage which can really be found anywhere. It's not difficult to find yourself doing an extra year at college because you changed your mind about a major. Study abroad options are plentiful, I definitely plan on that in my future!

5 College Junior

Academics: I love that I chose to be an Allied Health Sciences major because I feel that it will really prepare me for Physical Therapy graduate school. It's very competitive but has plenty of opportunities all over campus.

1 College Junior

Nightlife: Nothing around here except about half an hour to 45 minutes away.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Definitely have options. It's harder to find something close to campus which makes sense because that's where everyone looks.

1 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Outside of campus there is literaly nothing to do and nowhere to go. You'd have to drive about 30 to 45 minutes to get to a more lively town and find places to go.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Definitely the best. Very big campus, and you can meet new people everyday. You might not even get to know you whole class by the time you graduate let alone your whole school.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I love the atmosphere, nice and quiet.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The prices vary but they still tend to be low.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Depending on the classes some can be difficult some tend to be easier. as long as you put in work.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A degree is important in the long run. As long as you major in something that will benefit you.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received as much financial aid as I could get.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's not a serious problem on our campus.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: It is diverse in most areas, you can find a place to fit in, no matter how different you may feel. There is something for everyone.

College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Most of the students dress alike, but there is diversity, just very little of it.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: We have many dinning halls which gives us variety, but the choices at each one can be limited. Most of them close early, which is inconvenient, but the few that are open, are pretty good and have options that cater to interest of many.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have excellent spirit. We "bleed blue" and take pride in our sports especially our basketball team, both men's and women's.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The University of Connecticut is a very diverse and culturally rich community. Almost everyone is accepting and friendly regardless of race, religion, economic background, political beliefs,etc.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There are many attractions on campus. There is always something going on around campus. I love the clubs and cultural events. they make our campus more culturally rich and colorful. We are nationally acclaimed and prominent when it comes to sports especially basketball.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The amount in scholarships in which the university grants incoming students, depends on their academic performance in high school which sticks all four years. You cannot upgrade to a scholarship of higher value if you are doing better in college, which I think is a disadvantage to many students.

UConn is a great place to spend your college years. There will be aspects of different universities that people like and dislike, so you won't have the perfect college experience at UConn—or anywhere, for that matter; however, you won't hate your time at UConn. There’s something for everyone here, with so many clubs and organizations on campus. If you pursue what interests you, you will have a great college experience. These clubs exist for a reason: to bring people together with common interests. If you don’t pursue them, you’re missing out on a chance to meet new people and have new experiences. Some students get overwhelmed with the large class sizes, limited parking, and the walks to class in unreliable New England weather. However, it's important to remember that college life is an adjustment.

The entire student body unifies over basketball. Whether you’re a fan of the sport or not, Husky pride is everywhere. Campus is like its own city since there’s really nothing else around Storrs, Conn. While its size may be intimidating, you learn quickly where everything is and which buildings your classes are in. Campus transportation makes it easy to navigate from one side to the other, as well. UConn’s academics are not to be ignored, with a stand-up reputation among New England public universities. A degree from UConn is sure to help you get the future you want.
