UConn is an active campus. Students are spotted outdoors jogging or hitting the gym, and there are tons of club sports to get involved with, as well. People work hard to look good, and it shows when the weekend comes. Girls like to get dressed up to go out to parties or the bar. You'll see a lot of them wearing high heels—a big mistake when you have to walk everywhere, though.
Most people are friendly, too. It's not unusual to hear crowds yell the UConn Huskies chant while walking to a party or to end up in an apartment where you know no one, but leave with a couple of new contacts in your phone. It's easy to meet people—just get out of your dorm room!
