Overall, I enjoy my time at University of Hartford and feel that it's worthwhile to attend the school. Here are the things that especially stick out to me:

The food is top-notch. I actually eat better at school than at home!

Student facilities are pretty nice, too. There's ~50 practice rooms (each with a piano) that even non-music students can use, several large common "hangout" rooms (some with ping-pong tables and the like), and an impressive library.

I have no significant complaints about the school.
Review University of Hartford
One quality of the University of Hartford that really stood out to me among other schools I looked at was the on-campus apartment-style living. You don't have to stay in a dorm all 4 years. You can move into a 4, 5, or 6-man apartment right after your freshman year! The dorms are great during your first year, with RAs holding programs to help bond floormates and comfortable rooms. My entire floor became very close my freshman year and we are all still friends now, post-grad! Hawk Hall is also a very unique living experience, with each floor having "themes" (community service, honors, leadership, Hawk spirit, etc.) that bond the students living on them. The apartments are great, too! They provide more independent living with living rooms, kitchens, beds and baths. They provide a real community feel with the apartments around you.
Making my college decision was difficult, but I am happy I chose UHart. I am currently a freshman and I love it here! The dorms are a good size and everyone in my building is so friendly. The professors are thorough and the class sizes are small. This is the perfect learning environment for me, as I focus better in smaller classes. There are a lot of activities to do on campus. The campus is very diverse. The only complaint I have is the food is not good in my opinion. I got tired of it pretty easily. Also, it is a very pricey school. Otherwise, I love it here!
