University of Connecticut Reviews
UCONN has a had such a large and positive impact on my life. I was able to learn more about myself in various ways from classes, friends, study habits, and trying new activities. With UCONN specifically, the openness of the campus was just amazing. There's not really much outside of UCONN and I was worried that my freedom would be restricted. I was so wrong. There are so many things to do on campus with 500+ clubs, D1 sports, daily on campus events, and Storrs Center. For me, I joined a fraternity, did volunteer work, and had an on-campus job. I often found myself hanging with my friends in the massive library or relaxing in my dorm with friends on my floor. Lecture classes are filled with 200+ students. Yet, each lecture class has a discussion class with about 20 students. This allows students to get a better understanding of the material. Student Advisors are also always available to help with anything (school, home, extracurriculars). I could not be happier with my decision!
I have absolutely loved my experience at UConn. Not only are students granted access to most any club or academic endeavor they may wish to pursue, but most have a great time doing so! Although UConn is located in the small town of Mansfield, CT, I have never had a problem finding something to do in my free time or on the weekends. Sports games, greek life, bars, and on-campus clubs ensure that anyone who is looking for something to do will find it!
I transferred to the University of Connecticut from the University of New Hampshire and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Some of the things that I was looking for when transferring included a large campus, school spirit, excellent academics and professors, and student life. I can honestly say UConn has exceeded my expectations in all of these areas and plus some. I wouldn't want to be a student at any other school and I wouldn't want to make any other changes to UConn!
