Review University of Connecticut
The University of Connecticut has so much going on -- all the time! With over 700+ clubs and winning division I sports teams, there is a sense of unity and family here at UConn. Everyday there are new posters, emails, and newspapers being printed and sent out that will have your calendar jam packed with student, cultural center, scholarly, voluntary, and entertainment events. But don't get nervous, there are so many resources on campus and online that will solve any and all the questions or advice you have about financial problems, academic matters, or even personal events. This campus believes strongly in the prosperity of not only your education, but in every individual because as strongly addressed on the Freshman Move-in Day celebration, you are the light.
The campus is so rich with diversity, there are hundreds on clubs and organization a student can become apart of. This makes it easy to meet new people and also allows the student to find out more about themselves such as talents, what their passionate about, and etc. The students take extreme pride in the husky community making the environment welcoming for transfer students and the freshman classes. The professors are extremely passionate about their field of work, making learning new topics more interesting. Most of them are also to willing to be flexible with their schedules in order to help the students become more successful. For being a huge campus, it is extremely safe and takes the safety of their students as the biggest priority. This school has lived up to so far, everything i wanted and pictured my college experience to be like. I am a student today, but a husky forever!
Once you start to get used to the campus, you realize is that it isn't that big. People are friendly here and it's not hard to make friends. A lot of clubs to join so definitely do that because there really isn't anything else to do unless your play sports or are interested in ROTC. Class difficulty depends on your major. Engineering degrees are no joke. Make sure your prepared for the work! Professors could be better for these subjects.
