5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I was worried that going to a state university like UCONN wouldn't have as strong an art department to rival actual art colleges. I was dead wrong and I am still continued to be impressed with the quality of their art department.

Overall Experience: My experience at my current school has been wonderful so far. There are lot of opportunities available for my major and I had a chance to make a lot of good friends. But I wish I chose a school that is near to my home.

Overall Experience: Well I think it's a really good university for a science student and is nationally recognized. I would still choose this school if I was given another chance. The most important factor is your own performance in academics rather than school I think.

Overall Experience: I truly love the diversity that this school has to offer and I also really like the different campuses that this school has to offer.

Overall Experience: Uconn is a great school to attend with an intended major or if you are undecided. Advisors and the general education classes are a great way to shape and focus on your interests all while meeting and interacting with great professors that work directly in their field of choice.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have loved being at Uconn so far. The campus is beautiful and most of the people are friendly and welcoming. There is so much to get involved in from sky diving club to outreach programs to young republicans club. I as a dancer in high school and was able to take part in a wide variety of dance organizations. In addition I am a strong Christian and was able to find an amazing organization to take part in and gain a leadership role. I am a huge fan of the a out of school spirit as well. The only thing I would want to change is the climate because it is very cold and windy. However all of the Christmas spirit and decorations and even snow days make the winter much more bearable.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am a transfer student, and coming into UConn I was afraid I wouldn't fit in. However, the student body is extremely diverse and welcoming which made the transition much easier. I transferred solely for my major and expected to not like the school very much, but I was completely wrong. I absolutely love UConn; everything from the beautiful campus and animals on Horsebarn Hill to the classes and professors to the huge variety of extracurricular opportunities that are available. I am on a club sports team and it has honestly been one of the best experiences I've ever had. It provides an instant group of friends, motivation to workout, and time away from stress and homework in the form of practice, competitions, and even just social events. I am so glad I transferred to UConn it has been a wonderful experience so far and I can't wait to go back in the fall.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I first became familiar with Uconn during orientation earlier this month. The student orientation leaders were very great examples of the institution's spirit. I also genuinely admire the students' mindset to look out for one another. This became evident when much of the advice I received by many of the former and current students was to, "protect your pack." The school also prides itself in their athletic success and that itself gives everyone another reason to be proud of such an institution. When I was applying I was looking for not only a school that would meet my educational needs but a school that came together during big events. Here, that's part of the culture as a majority of students attend the sports games. Choosing to attend Uconn, if given the choice again , wouldn't be much of an issue as it has proved to me to be the best fit for my character.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At my first year at college I felt that it was the wrong fit for me. I felt that I did not want to graduate from this college. I worked extra hard to maintain good grades so I was able to transfer. This fall semester I am transferring to one of my dream schools and I cannot be more excited! The school I am attending in the fall is a public research university, something which is very different from where I first started, a private liberal arts school. I would suggest to students researching schools to look at small and large schools, this will truly help you decide what you want. And that feeling you get when you first step on campus is a lasting one, first impressions are lasting impressions! College is what you make of it so enjoy the ride!

Overall Experience: UConn is beautiful and has a lot happening. The downtown is growing and the student population, though large, is handled well. The administration may not be the best but my experience so far has been amazing.

4 College Freshman

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Although I haven't started my first semester at the University of Connecticut, I am positive that I will enjoy the school greatly. The campus is beautiful and the overall student body has been warm and welcoming. There is a sense of opportunity that hangs over the school and the atmosphere is compelling. The architecture of the buildings varies from traditional to a more modern look which is great, the best of both worlds. What makes my school unique is its friendly yet competitive environment. If I could do it all over, I'd stick to the University of Connecticut because of the extensive professional network the school holds and the amazing opportunities the school offers for its student body such as studying abroad programs and internships.

Overall Experience: I love UConn! It's a great academic school with a beautiful campus, awesome people, and an abundance of clubs and things to do. The transportation system (busses) could be a little more organized. I've had a great time so far!

Overall Experience: Making the decision to attend UConn was the best decision I have made in my life.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Honestly, if you are from a small town in CT with nothing fun to do on the weekends, UConn seems like the most exciting place. However, being from Boston, a city where I went where I pleased with no need for a car and with lots of options to choose from, UConn is extremely bland.

Off-Campus Housing: Haven't had to look for off campus housing but my friends have and they say it's somewhat a challenge but I think if you email /call the right person at UConn they will help you a lot.

Campus Housing: The places that I have lived in where very clean and spacious. Since I was in an honors building though, it was hard to make friends.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I've heard that it's kind of iffy and that it can be really expensive.

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.
