Party Scene: I do not participate due to my time constraints and ciriculum.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Excellent and is what you make of it.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Do not partake in any activity associated to alcoholic beverages the r illegal drugs. I have to stay focused or will not pass my classes. They require long hours of study therefore I do not become involved. This is probably a good thing for me and I hope to stay on this course.

3 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Small for the money parents or students pay

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: My ciriculum takes up most of my time due to the complexity of the program. Therfore I do not have a lot of down time and feel my studies are a priority. UCONN is a state school however costs much more than the other state schools in CT. I'm sure fraternity's & sororitys are a fine addition to your college experience but if I hope to have a productive future I have to remain steadfast in my views and focus on my studie verses recreation.

Athletics: School is rated high due to the girls basketball success

Health & Safety: There weren't many incidents reported but I noticed that many people that were sexually assaulted didn't report it so most of it goes unknown but when they are reported, the school makes sure to notify the students and advertise the resources that can be used.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some professors are amazing at what they do and others are boring and have favorites. Nothing is in-between, just two extremes. There's a huge variety of courses offered and you're sure to find classes that interest you.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In most schools they will help you with job and internship searching. I'm assuming that a degree from this school is valued because it is well known as one of the best public schools. The career center and services on campus are very helpful from what I've heard.

Campus Housing: The campus housing is either amazing or poor, there's no in between. The newer halls have a large amount of space while the older halls are like prisons. The res life is either extremely loud or extremely quiet. There's no in-between but there are pros and cons to every hall.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are plenty of people in greek life but it isn't seen as an important part about being on campus. The people in it enjoy it very much but the ones who aren't in it don't feel as if they're missing out. The greek life has events and make sure that it's known on campus but it's not thrown in your face.

Athletics: The Athletics are a huge part of the school especially basketball because we have been(are) the national champions in both women and men's basketball. The school makes sure that intramurals are also a big part of the school and the students are very involved. The pride in our athletics is one of the greatest I've ever seen.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Attending The University of Connecticut has been one of the best decisions i've made. The teachers are passionate and the environment is welcoming. The weather has a mind of its own and the wind makes sure to push you to class every day but on the hot days, you learn to appreciate it.

Health & Safety: We have blue lights in case of emergencies all over the campus. We had to take a mandatory alcohol information test, and sexual assault is addressed. I feel safe at Uconn.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Professors are understanding and helpful. They truly want to help you understand the topics they are teaching. Some teachers are hard to understand due to their accents, however almost all of them are approachable and easy to talk to for help. There are hundreds of courses available at Uconn with a variety of class styles and sizes to choose from.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm always getting emails about internship possibilities and career events at Uconn, which shows how important it is.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Room and Board is expensive. However, the rooms are nice and clean with working heaters. The only thing bad I would say is that some dorms have built in air conditioning units while others don't. And it is prohibited to bring one in unless you have a written doctors note for asthma.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: My brother was part of a fraternity when he went to Uconn. His fraternity did a number of good things such as donations and fundraisers. He told me that great life was a great way to form lifetime bonds and friendships. I myself, however will not join the Greek life because I feel as though my brother came out a different person. He and his fraternity helped other people and did community service, however I feel as though he became more arrogant and pretentious. I can see this in the majority of all the students who are in the Greek system. However, since all the Greek students are not my brother, I will refrain from judging them too harshly. But off of my experience with my brother, I won't be joining Greek life.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have two older siblings in my family; one brother and one sister. My brother went to Uconn and graduated in 2013 and my sister is currently a junior at Uconn. Both going to Uconn heavily influenced me in picking it as the college I wanted to go to. The school spirit especially in the basketball program really grabbed me. It was one of the top public schools in America and it was close to where I lived. Uconn was the only college I applied for. That was because I knew that I wanted to go nowhere else. It wasn't about having confidence, I was scared to death that I might not get in. It just felt like the only thing to do, the right thing to do. I'm now finishing my Freshman year at Uconn. It's incredible how fast everything went by. The teachers were amazing in that they showed true desire to help us understand their material. Also the communities that are built in Uconn among the students and staff are great. It makes leaving home more manageable and less intimidating.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: they take crime alerts seriously and the blue lights help me feel safe. I think it's difficult to control all dangerous or unhealthy situations with this many students, but they do a great job with what they can.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Some are international and honestly difficult to understand. But most care a lot about their subject and I enjoy hearing their lectures.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school offers several internship and career fairs and options that help students get on the right track.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in towers and it's so beautiful up there and a great atmosphere. It is unfortunate that it's up a hill and far away from the center of campus, but the dining hall makes up for it.

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.
