Health & Safety: The school try their best to make the campus safe. I like the fact that when an event, such as sexual assault or a robbery happens, the school sends out emails to warn the students for their safety.

Overall Experience: Most courses are hard but not difficult, you just need to put your part and try your best. The regional campuses have a smaller class size which is an advantage when having that one-on-one conversation with professors.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I will be changing campus from Avery Point to Storrs this year. But one thing I can say is that Avery Point is an amazing campus and if I can stay one more year I would. The professors encourage you to do well and are there if you need them. The Avery Point campus has a great scenery which helps you relax on stressful days. I will be attending the Storrs campus this Fall 2016 and I am excited to start a new journey.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some dorms are super old. Buckley, the honors dorms, are not much better than towers, which is primarily freshman. Northwest is pretty new and houses students in all years and is one of the nicer dorms

Greek Life: Greek life is a big part of the school but it doesnt play a huge role socially. The parties are always shut down so people who try to socialize and whatnot at parties are usually just disappointed

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
