One quality of the University of Hartford that really stood out to me among other schools I looked at was the on-campus apartment-style living. You don't have to stay in a dorm all 4 years. You can move into a 4, 5, or 6-man apartment right after your freshman year! The dorms are great during your first year, with RAs holding programs to help bond floormates and comfortable rooms. My entire floor became very close my freshman year and we are all still friends now, post-grad! Hawk Hall is also a very unique living experience, with each floor having "themes" (community service, honors, leadership, Hawk spirit, etc.) that bond the students living on them. The apartments are great, too! They provide more independent living with living rooms, kitchens, beds and baths. They provide a real community feel with the apartments around you.

My program's internship coordinator helped me to successfully find, complete and earn credit for 3 internships during my time at the University. I was offered jobs by two of my internships, one of which I still hold today part-time, and the skills I learned in these internships were so beneficial to me. I truly felt "career ready" upon graduation and eased right into my full-time salaried job in a field I love. The faculty are incredibly connected to the surrounding areas and/or their field and the school holds many alumni mixers to help students network, too!

Having not been a D1 athlete, I joined intramural sports my first semester at UHart and loved it! I met a ton of people and had an athletic outlet that worked great with my academic schedule. There are TONS of students involved in both club and intramural sports and there is great attendance at the D1 games, too. The sports center also has everything you need for an awesome gym session - from free weight rooms to weight machines to treadmills, bikes, ellipticals, indoor and outdoor pool and more!
