3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There's a lot to do if you put forth the effort to find activities and clubs you enjoy

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The majority of kids that I see are involved in drinking and drugs

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are pretty small, and the learning communities are definitely not for me, personally.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: A lot of exchange students. It is interesting to talk to kids who speak another language.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. Alert systems are always up to date and campus police are always there when needed.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The buses are convenient, but the bus tracker app does not work at all.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The winter is pretty cold and the wind gets pretty annoying.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: UConn is a very diverse university, you see a wide variety of ethnicities, races, and religions. In fact, UConn's campus includes a church, mosque, and a synagog, which is really convenient for the students of UConn.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: UConn has a great athletics program, infact our mens and womens basketball teams both just won the NCAA championship. UConn favors athletes too much though, the gym for students is nothing like the gym for athletes.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: As a freshman/sophomore at UConn, you get no options for housing. I know plenty of freshman/sophomores in other universities near by that give their students nice dorms/suites and UConn doesn't really give that option for underclassmen.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: UConn does not give out any Grants or Scholarships since it is a huge public school. Other school that I have applied to such as Quinnipiac and Univeristy of Rhode Island gave me scholarships but all I got from UConn was loans. So now I am going to be stuck with huge student debt.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Scholarships are scholarships. Work hard and reap the benefits.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I never lived in an off campus apartment.

2 College Sophomore

Computers: Connection sucks but everything is based online.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Campus buses are good but that's all there is.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: AMAZING. GO HUSKIES! NCAA CHAMPS!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Never had it but people seem to love it ... when they are drunk.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Middle of nowhere but the campus itself is beautiful.

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.
