UConn has very little consideration for their commuting students. I once had to drive to school in a blizzard to take a test which couldn't be made up if I didn't show. But when I got there, the professor hadn't even shown up because of the snow! Yet i still had to drive all the way there in less than perfect conditions. Speaking of, the professors are horrible. They hire teachers who either have no idea what they're doing or teachers that have such thick accents that you can't understand them. Academic success isn't just in the hands of the student. It's also in the hands of the professor teaching the class. If the professor can't communicate clearly with the students, or they have unreasonable standards, etc, then their students will fail, and they will fail as a professor. I would like to see UConn administration take more interest in accomodating commuters and hire professors who can actually be understood.

I absolutely love the UConn Storrs campus! It is a breath-takingly beautiful institution that really targets student learning and motivates the students to achieve their ultimate dreams in life. It is not only a place to climb higher on the education ladder but is also where life skills are honed. Life outside and beyond the college years are not always going to be smooth-sailing and UConn does a good job at preparing their students what to expect in the bitterness of reality. I love the awesome food that the dining halls provide and the programs offered by the university would cater to various interest fields. I enrolled in Psychological Sciences within the College of Liberal Arts and have nothing but great things to say about it. University of Connecticut is a wonderful place to learn and explore, I highly recommend it!
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.
