5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: With so many people on campus, there are guys in every niche. Geeky guys, sporty guys, nerdy guys, gamer guys, religious guys; you name 'em, UConn's got 'em.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Health services is a little out of the way and pretty expensive, but you can get there if you really need to. Most students on campus are against rape culture and sexual assault.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Honestly, even though we're such a big campus and we don't all always understand each other, I think we all try very hard to learn new things and come together as a campus community. Above all our distinctions, we're all Huskies and proud of it and it shows!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Despite it's pitfalls, I really like UConn. I have some large lectures and some small classes that I learn form and take from equally. I have some writing intensive, reading intensive, and neither intensive courses that all teach me important things. My social life is great even as a non-Greek and non-partygoer. There's bout to be a club for something you're interested in even the most obscure things! On this big campus there really is a niche for everyone, but it is difficult to find and you might feel pretty lonely when you first arrive.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think a lot of people really respect UConn as a school. There's always job fairs and recruiters looking for some of the more high profile majors like STEM fields and business school students. Even as a liberal arts major, there's many panels on what you can of with your degree.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not Greek but I know many Greeks who are very nice. Some aren't though and they give Greek life a bad name.. Most GDI's only go to parties and complain about Greek life.

College Freshman

Athletics: Sports are big but I don't participate. I hear the rec center is pretty abysmal but the variety training centers are great.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't love off campus, but some of my friends who do are somewhat pleased with it.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Everyone hates parking services. We also have class some days when it's not safe to be outside.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There's a good number of scholarships for residents. so go you if you live there. If you're an out of state student, you have overpriced tuition and little help. I did get a fairly generous scholarship as a minority though.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Most students go to the bars or frat houses. If thats not your vibe, you're kind of out of luck.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Some of the dining halls (North, Northwest, and South) are consistently good. Others (McMahon, Whitney, and Putnam) are kind of a hit or miss. Buckley just sucks, sorry honors and Shippee kids.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in arguably the nicest dorms on campus which are suite style. I know that many of the dorms are actually pretty bad, though,

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is okay. It could be better.

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus and have no friends that live off campus

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are quite a few places you can order food from. Storrs center is down the street and you can get Chinese food, wings, burgers, cookies, and more delivered to your room.

Administration: You have to leave really early, but the bus will get you to class

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: You have to search but if you get to campus early you'll find a place

Party Scene: Party life here sucks. Unless you know the correct people or unless your in a sorority/frat you'll never figure out where to go. People here either tend to go really hard or not at all and it's horrible if your in the middle.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are a lot of options to choose from so you'll never truly go hungry unless your really picky

Campus Housing: Depending on where you live, your housing can be awesome or it can suck. Some dorms like North are tiny as can be, but on the upside they're a little cheaper.Others like South or the apartments are bigger but they cost more. Social wise, or not you bond with people on your floor is a 50/50 chance. It just depends if you get friendly people or not

Party Scene: Frat/house parties are only fun for so long. We've been to too many themed parties to care after 3 months and unless you can get into Ted's to hang out or go to Nickel the parties are all you can really go to.

Guys & Girls: Frat guys are attractive but assholes. Most other guys can't go out because they don't get into frat parties, unless you're an athlete...then you're like royalty.

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.
