    I am entering the university this fall, and it's already an overall good school. I had about two visits, one was for a campus tour, and my other visit was for national portfolio day, both visits were exceptional. The teachers are very professional and kind, the students are welcoming. The overall environment is positive and homey. I am very excited to attend and pursue a career in the arts at the University of Hartford!

    As an incoming student I can not say I had an online class experience but due to covid orientation, and campus visits have been delayed or done online. The online orientation was great! It was literally like meeting in person, I know due to the current situation, online classes will probably be great.
    With entering the Univerisity of Hartford as a freshman my experience was average. It is a medium-sized school, however, the campus layout makes it feel like a large school. All of the residential buildings are together and all of the academic buildings are together. The food was hit or miss but there aren't many options, especially on weekends. The professors are also hit or miss. It is very easy to be a part of clubs and activities on campus. There were activities on campus at least every month. Campus security always did a great job of patrolling campus and quickly responding. The tutoring center was one of the best features of the school, there was a student tutor for every subject and you have the option to choose whether you want to be in a scheduled group tutoring or scheduled individual tutoring as well or you can choose to come and go and opt for walk-in tutoring. New improvements included game rooms residential basements, a fire pit, and an upgraded fitness center.
