i just finished my first year at Uconn and liked it alot.. Some people complain about the town, but there is plenty to do on campus and the towns around Uconn are slowly growing. hartford is 15 minutes away if ur into clubs and bars, but for me i like it because ur close to about everything. Boston is an hour and a half, my friends and i go surfing in Rhode island, which is probably under an hour. The sports programs are amazing, and the school's recognition has gotten a lot better. Its pretty stupid to go to a private university that cost about twice as much and has little to no recognition than rather than just going to Uconn.

UConn is a still a more than affordable school with a growing reputation for excellence. Unfortunately it has strayed from its previous role as a safety net for top students unable to afford or enter top out-of-state private schools and now become a bit elitist. Those that do get in get a great education at a school with wonderful facilities at a great price.

UConn is a terrible school. The only thing people do here is drink and sleep around. A lot (not all) of the people are the same - upper middle-class snobs who have no appreciation for anything they have. The few people who have a brain here are worth getting to know however. A number of the teachers I had here did not seem to really care about the students that much. It's also irritating that the bathrooms are always totally trashed and the campus is usually a mess. The food is bad and the administration seems to be full of hypocrisy. Definitely a waste of your time and money. UConn will not expose you to new kinds of people or new perspectives on anything.
