4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I really liked my english class and my professor was really nice and worked well with students. My other classes had very good professors, but I felt more comfortable going to their teaching assistants most of the time.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The Career Development Center is extremely helpful and those who take advantage of it are generally not disappointed. For the most part everyone is very career oriented, but still make time for fun activities.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel safe for the most part and the Women's Center brings awareness on sexual assault matters. The school sends email notifications on any recent criminal activity or event that occurs on campus. There is also the campus blue lights and the campus police who set up self-defense programs.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: It depends on which buildings you are put in. Some buildings are new and old and if you are a freshman I believe you don't get to choose. My old dorm didn't have elevators like my new one does for instance.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I've met some Greek members and they seem nice. Views upon Greek life can go either way depending on the individual. I've never been to a Greek party, but I originally had no intention of going because of the stigma behind them.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Basketball is a big thing at UConn. Particularly, mens basketball is most popular. But everyone assumes the women's team will win more or all their games in comparison to the men. In general, they usually do win all their games.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've learned a lot about myself at school and have been exposed to so many things. I've really grown socially and emotionally.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall I love this university, I have made friends that i will have for life and already learned so much about my craft and my field. This is a wonderful university.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am an acting major, so none of these career fairs really apply to me, because when i graduate my job will be auditioning until I actually get a real job.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are many improvements that can be made to the health and safety of the UCONN campus, Health Services is always a pain to deal with

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Hosing just really depends on where you're living. Each dorm is so different. I have lived in Shippee for the last two years because it was so close to my classes in the drama building. But now UCONN is making Shippee all honors housing which is going to push all of the arts majors out of the only dorm near the building where they will spend most of their time.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I wouldn't personally want to be a part of Greek Life just because it doesn't match my personality but i have friends who do it, and they don't bother me. I'm just not really into it.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics at Uconn are great, but sometimes i feel as though they are too heavily focused on and there are other departments that are in more need of funding.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love going to Uconn, I am part of a small major in a massive university so I get the best of both worlds! Uconn is an inviting environment that celebrates students and wants them to succeed.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most professors in classes that relate to your major are truly interested in what they are teaching. They are generally very willing to meet outside of class to help with difficult material. Class sizes can be one downfall at UConn. They are frequently very large and you might be required to attend a discussion period on top of the lecture. Sometimes the TA's are helpful and sometimes they are not. Most professors mix in videos or pictures to enhance the lectures and some use clickers to ask students for responses.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: As far as I am aware, UConn is viewed as a reputable school that offers majors in many career interests. There are many employers and big companies that attend the career fair so students are exposed to real jobs they could want to apply for. The career center on campus is very organized and incredibly helpful.

Health & Safety: I know of a health and safety building that provides help to anyone who needs it. In terms of sexual assault, I am not aware of any action taken by the administrators to prevent it.

Campus Housing: Some dooms are in very poor condition and need renovations. Others are newer and nicer, having better dining halls and room sizes.

Greek Life: Greek life at UConn changes people, and from an outside perspective, it's not for the better. I have had more than one friend join a sorority and begin to forget me and the people they used to hang out with. I knew a girl really well from high school, and when she joined Greek Life at UConn, she changed her hair and wardrobe completely just to fit in. Both fraternities and sororities are very cliquey and if you aren't part of them, don't expect to be invited to any parties or events.

Athletics: There is plenty of fan support for basketball, UConn's major sport team. However, many of the club sports or normal clubs (i.e. gymnastics club, yoga club) suffer from a lack of advertising. Though they have two involvement fairs during the year, many students aren't aware of the many sport activities that are available on campus.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The main issue is the cost of tuition and the fact that this college is run more like a business than a educational institution. I think if the state were to pay more to the university, professors could implement newer devices and technology into the course to stimulate more interest and diversify the classes. Otherwise, the professors do their best to teach their students using all different methods.

Overall Experience: I would choose my school because within in major the professors are passionate and understanding of the struggling society. However, on the contrary I would prefer my school to accept more minority 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.
