Great way to start college. Excellent for fulfilling pre-requisites and introductory into all majors. Very comfortable; good people and small stature gives a sort of laid back high school vibe. Wonderful teachers who care about your education and success (so long as you're willing to do your best, they'll give their best for you too). Great library; decent selection of books with lots of peace and quiet, and study rooms for collaborating on projects with other students. There's also a writing center, which is really helpful when you're struggling on an essay. In terms of services the school provides: student help center where you can speak with an school adviser, career counselor, and even a financial adviser. Not too many clubs to join, but lots of little activities (cute things like making persona cards, psychic readings, popcorn booth, bored game night, etc.). UCONN Waterbury may not be the biggest or fanciest campus out there, but its definitely one worth checking out.

I am currently enrolled in Uconn Waterbury campus. Considering it is the heart of downtown Waterbury the campus itself is beautiful and across the street from the campus we have more classrooms in a historic building which is beautiful. I am only a freshman in my second semester but my experience so far at Uconn is amazing, the professors are great and they really care if you show that you put the effort and time in. Also, all the time at the campus are events always going on, some days they have Moes, Panera, and for Chinese New Years they handed out egg roles, and lucky bamboo. The Uconn Waterbury has so far been a great experience and I cannot wait to continue the next 4-6 years of my college career there.
Overall, UCONN is an amazing university. If help is needed, it will always be right around the corner. Professors will always be there when needed. However, I would love to see more diversity within the campus itself.
