I like UConn because it really gives ample opportunities for anyone to pursue their interests and diverge further in that field. It is very diverse with people from all around the world. The professors are very helpful and there is a common theme of "the mission to education" where every person is working with another to improve the educational experience for everyone.
Although having large classes might be an advantage for some people, it minimizes the interaction between the students, which could be improved. Students don't interact very well in classes and rely on extracurricular activities or living on campus to get to know more people. Additionally, another area where the university can improve is the campus food! The dining halls don't present a variety of options, which makes it hard for some people to find what is right for them.

Around this time last year I was extremely nervous to be embarking on a new journey called college. At such a large campus, I had no idea what to expect. Would I get lost going to class? Would I make friends? Would my roommate be a total freak? As an incoming freshman, we have all feared the terrifying scenerios but I am stoked to say that my experience was unimaginable. With the help of my hands on advisor, I took amazing classes with state of the art professors who helped mold me into a better student today. I really got to explore my options at Uconn and I even changed my major! Never be afraid to try something new! There are such great resources at Uconn to help you fulfill your needs. By the end of the year I made long-lasting friendships, got super involved in amazing clubs and work opportunities. Choosing Uconn was one of the best decisions I have ever made!
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.
