My first year at the University of Hartford was definitely an experience. My first semester was all about change, whether it was meeting new people, living in a new environment, and having new professors. I struggled towards the end of the first semester. I was still adjusting to the change. Once second semester started, I promised myself that I would do way better than I did first semester. I began visiting my professors more during their office hours. I learned that the professors at the University of Hartford want nothing but success for their students. They're extraordinarily helpful in any situation that comes their way. I ended the semester with a 3.19 GPA. My biggest accomplishment my freshman year was making the Dean's List.

I don't know if i'm being biased but I definitely think this is my dream school. I literally spent my entire summer working and preparing for this school year just to attend school here. If you are supposed to be here it will feel like home and you won't want to leave.

Would not choose again. Safety school for low achieving students. Dorms are horrible! Food is bad. Place is dead on the weekend. A lot of people drop out or tranfer, it seems like most don;t graduate. Most don't want to be here. Classes are mostly a joke. Overall would not recomend!
