The University of Hartford changed my life. In high school, I wasn't very involved in clubs, the community, or my studies. The campus atmosphere is incredibly inviting and I was able to open up right away and take on new opportunities that will lead me to a brighter future after graduation. Within my first year, I felt confident enough to involve myself in the Women's Advancement Initiative (an organization unique to UHart), a community service fraternity, studying abroad planning, orientation leaders, and in student government. I stand out amongst my peers when it comes to public speaking because of my involvement with the university. There is not a moment that goes by on that campus where I do not feel at home.

The past three years I spent at the University of Hartford was exciting. I made a lot of new friends as the years went on. Being in college, in general helped me discover myself. It helped me to become a better person. It helped me to be responsible and independent. My overall experience at this school could've been better but it wasn't the worst. I had a few complications with the classes I thought but it wasn't something the school could've fixed. It was based on me and the changes I needed to make. The only thing at this school I that I would change is having more options then just subway in the nigh time whenever you're hungry. Adding another food place thats open late nights would be better. Another thing I would change is the living condition. When I first moved in, my shower was broken and so many other things weren't up to date for a stable living condition but overall the school is good to me.
I’m a recently graduated alumni (class of 2018) and I can honestly say Uhart is a good school but they have some improvements that they could
make. I was very active on campus But it can also be very cliquey, if you’re not Greek or SGA/Red key/Red Cap you can be a little exiled from having what most would consider a normal college experience.

Some majors are better funded and have more diversity then others. As a marketing major I had to substitute a lot of my major electives with communications classes and other management classes rather than actually receiving a marketing education which is a shame because I learned a lot in the few marketing classes that I had.

They should become more selective with their admissions to create a more intellectual and competitive learning space.
