University of Connecticut Reviews

19 reviews
>I would characterize UConn students as friendly and hardworking.

>Storrs can be boring at times, but there's enough to do on campus and many restaurants to try in Storrs center. The new recreation center is great. There's a lot of equipment, a running track, basketball courts, exercises classes, and etc. Also, there are a lot of food options and cafes on campus that I enjoy everyday.

>Coming from a small liberal arts college, I was initially concerned about starting graduate school at a large university, but so far everything's been great! The schools is large, but you'll find a niche within your department.

Overall, the required and elective courses were beneficial in enhancing my knowledge on my field of interest. Some courses were more engaging and discussion based, while others were lecture driven with one or two exams. As a graduate student, the class sizes are typically smaller and more specialized making it easier to seek out help. It is possible to take 3-4 courses a semester while also working approximately 20-30 hours/week to maintain a work/school balance.
I really like my experience with the graduate school at Uconn. I've had alot of experiences that I probably wouldn't have had anywhere else including internships and campus jobs. The classes were educational and really made me challenge myself and think about different topics in different ways. The professors were not only very energetic and excited about teaching but also about the profession in general with many having other jobs including research and therapy. I also enjoy that the campus was fairly close to my home so I do not have to travel too far.
