Simply just a number. I want my money back... If you're thinking of UConn think again.

The School sees us as dollar signs and that is it. They complain about students being on the road on the weekends, yet they wont spend the money to put a sidewalk on the street. They try to squeeze every dollar out of you and it gets annoying.

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.
