I enjoy the University of Connecticut Stamford as it’s in a comfortable environment and is friendly to new students! Things I would like to change may be to have a meal plan and possibility a bigger campus, including better transportation of the shuttle.

Campus is safe and very clean. Dorms are amazing, lots of space and a game room! Though wait time for items is very annoying, it takes two weeks to receive ID's, documents, etc... I also wish I didn't have to pay out of pocket for certain applications such as webassign/cengage that we use in class.
I am currently a freshman at UCONN, and i know i haven't been there to long however I do feel i have a good perspective on the school. They have a lot of amazing teachers who really care about the students and want them to succeed not only in school but in their career choice as well. However, I do feel they should make it more like a campus, it feels more like a high school. I also feel they should offer more classes and more majors and minors. There are only a handful you can complete at this location. And if they aren't going to expand the majors at least expand the minors or have more accessible programs available for the student. For example, they have art as a major but not as a minor. Another example is they don't have classes on social work, so i feel they should offer either an off campus program or add online classes. I feel if they add more options to online classes students will be able to explore and expand more with the campus.
