4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There are a wide range of people. You should have no trouble looking if you are active.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We have late night delivery for cookies, wings, chicken, numerous pizza places. There are also 2 cafes within walking distance, a dairy bar, Moe's, Mooyah's (burgers), Geno's Restaurant which is upscale Italian and the UConn Dairy Bar. There is Baja which is Mexican, Sarah's Pockets (mediterranean), 2 subways and a Wally's which is Chicken. There are 2 bar/ restaurants on campus and about 4 bars within walking proximities.

Also, 2 frozen yogurt places, a couple Chinese places, Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks.

3 College Junior

Diversity: UConn is a very white campus but there are many races and cultural associations. They have not handled sexual assault accusations in the best way, a women's study TA was asked not to return after aiding some women who had spoken up and accused the UConn police of saying that she "Asked for it". AKA the TA was fired for doing what she was teaching. It was pretty messed up.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Dorms on campus run on the small side, but they're not bad. Most dorms are co-ed by floor, and have separate bathrooms but you can request a same sex floor. The "longest" walk to the dining hall is about 7 minutes, but the average is probably closer to 3 depending on where you are. South Campus is the best place to live and Hilltop Apartments are really popular too. McMahon, South, West, and Alumni are closest to the center of campus/ student union/ classes/ library. And Storrs center has been built up with multiple food vendors and now a Price Right.

Facilities: The dining halls, academic buildings, and the center of campus is very well landscaped and aesthetically beautiful.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: There are always so many opportunities for any type of student because of our school's diversity. Every weekend the school hosts a late night activity in the Student Union to prevent kids from abusing drugs and to meet new people and have fun.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus itself is not entirely strict, which allows students to have fun and not be so paranoid as to whether they will get in trouble with the campus police. However, the police are very serious (as they should be) with underage drinking and parties so it is not commonly seen on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I had an excellent experience in my first year of housing. My dorm room was spacious, it had a large window which allowed a lot of sunlight to enter through, and it was very close to my classes and the center of campus.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: University of Connecticut is located in a very small town -- so small, in fact the campus makes up for most of the town. It is a lot of farmland, so there are not many attractions around campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a great variety of restaurants and take-out places around campus that are very easily accessible. They are also open late at night, which is very important.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: It was important to take the 2 required general Psychology courses needed for the major in my first year because it refreshed my memory on what I learned in high school and it also went into more detail to prepare me for the more advanced courses.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: It gets a bit challenging to be studying two separate majors -- however it is very rewarding. I am passionate about both of my majors -- Psychology and Economics -- so taking courses on both subjects is a very interesting experience for me.

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.
