This school made me into the leader and professional I am today. Thanks to amazing professors and joining Greek Life and other organizations, I feel fully prepared to go out into my field. For those who complain about UHA, take a step out of your comfort zone and actually DO something. Join a club, get to know your professors... this University is small, but it offers A LOT.

Overall this school has a lot to offer. It's a small campus with all the opportunities of a large campus, but with more individualized attention. I chose to stay here for my master's after completing an undergraduate degree because of how small the class sizes are and how much the professors care. They know all of their students names and faces, and really want you to succeed. I've had so many professors that have pushed me to be successful, and have become advocates for me, while teaching me to be my own biggest advocate.

I have no regrets about choosing the University of Hartford. The school has a very warm and positive atmosphere. The students are very welcoming, the professors care about their students and take the time to get to know them, and the student body is very diverse and open to different cultures.
