Sep 19 2004Math
If you don't like to drink, you might be a little bored here on weekends. Everyone leaves campus to go to parties, leaving a few people who sit in their rooms or go to university-sponsored events, which range from very lame to mildly exciting. There are many benefits, however, in being at UConn. The school has lots of money to spend on facilities, activities, and other resources. If you're here to get a great education, you will get it. The workload is pretty light, but it varies among individuals. If you're at least a little bright, you can get by with doing very little studying, but if you feel the need to do pointless work, it's always there. I think the coolest thing about being here is you will at some point have a natinally-known basketball player in your class, or you will otherwise see them walking around campus. I would recommend UConn to anyone who is uncertain of his major, because they have everything ranging from Puppetry to Hebrew, and some of the programs are very specialized.

Sep 07 2004Undecided
I'm now a sophomore at UConn and my perception of the school has changed since I started coming here. The school itself in terms of its programs and facilities are great. The UConn 2000 program is fantastic, as new and high tech facilities are popping up every semester. A degree from UConn definitely means more and has more value now than previously. However, the location isn't so hot. I am not a big drinking person, and it is quite apparent that drinking is about the only thing to do here on nights and weekends. There is no town of Storrs and unless you have a car, there is nothing to do nearby. So if you're a party-goer with a passion for learning, UConn is a good fit.

UConn provided a very good education. I enjoyed the atmosphere but you have to work at it. The professors were supportive if you sought them out. Try to avoid the large classes if possible. Socially it was great as long as you don't sit around and mop. If you can't find some fun with 17,000 others between the ages of 18 and 22 then you should reassess yourself.
