Rating 3.61 out of 5 3,247 reviews
Academics and Professors are pretty good. Have not encountered any discrimination. Downside is that there is nothing here. If you want to have fun/go to more suburban area you must drive at least 20 minutes.
Classes are a lot easier online but it is not as engaging and you get easily distracted. Miss out on opportunities for classes that have labs.
The school was a blast to attend, the classes were unnecessarily hard and the professors usually dont care about you.
It was exactly what you would expect: unproductive and hard to register for classes. it wasn't very positive or negative
When the COVID-19 pandemic struck in early March of the spring 2020 semester, I did end up having to finish the rest of the semester as well as the remainder of my senior year (Fall 2020-Spring 2021) fully online. My courses have been conducted both synchronously and asynchronously. Although I prefer learning in person in a enviorment where I am connected with my instructors and my peers, I have been able to manage well through my online courses, especially because UConn has done a really strong job in conducting courses effectively where professors are not only lenient and understanding towards students with current circumstance, but all professors from my experience have done their best to make sure us students feel connected still, especially those of us who are not living on campus and have classes that are all online. The support that UConn has provided in many different areas for students in order to ensure the best & safest experience has been great!
So far the classes I have taken this semester online have been good with understanding professors and teaching assistants. However, there is a lack of connection with many professors as lectures are mostly recorded and uploaded and learning is put on the student to teach themselves.
I am currently a transfer at UConn for this semester so I have not been able to observe how they transitioned from in-person to online classes. But as someone who lives on campus I can say they are trying their best to encourage interaction, despite the sense of loneliness that accompanies lack of roommates and restrictions on guests
Yes, I took classes online and they went well. My classmates and professors were very professional and made the experience as good as it could get.
This school is great because of the friendly atmosphere. I always feel welcomed and love going to class. The professors here care about your education and well-being.
Beautiful campus, kind and compassionate professors, excellent social life! UConn offers a diverse student body and lots of campus opportunities to become involved in.
I completed my degree prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, so almost all of my classes were in person. However, I took a Spanish film class online and thought it was a good experience.
I had a wonderful experience at University of Connecticut despite originally feeling disappointed that I had to choose UConn because it was less expensive than a private school I was considering. UConn's size allows for diversity in all forms--including fellow students, professors, and extracurricular activities. At the same time, being a part of a learning community helped me to feel like I had a smaller tight-knit support network within the larger university. My coursework at UConn prepared me well to continue on to medical school. Overall, my experiences at UConn allowed me to grow so much as a person and as a student, and if I had to go back, I would choose UConn again.
Although learning online became a tough task because of time management and also helping my younger sister with her online schooling. I enjoyed being able to make friends and also joined a club. As well as my professors presenting a nice environment for all students to reach out for their issues.
Honestly, it is pretty nice over here. The student and faculty are friendly and the education is top notch for being a public college.
I have not had any problems with online learning, it seems to be very well organized, but I have heard problems from other students.
As a Freshman at Uconn during Covid-19, my experience here so far has been the best it could possibly be. As an athlete the university works hard to keep us safe by weekly testings. We also have lots of rules and regulations to follow when practicing to keep us as safe as possible. Although we aren't allowed to have parties on campus, that hasn't stopped me from meeting new people! If made new friends through sports, online learning, and simply traveling across campus. Uconn also provides a variety of food choices at all the dining halls that satisfy a range of diet types!
My online learning experience with UCONN is actually quite great. Now that I don't have to catch a bus to go to and from classes, my schedule is more flexible. Along with most of my classes being asynchronous, so I'm able to complete my assignments on my own time.
