I know without questioon that I should haveEducation
I know without questioon that I should have attended a different college. UConn was the worst choice for me academically and socially. My potential was squashed by a distandt, uncaring faculty and huge, impersonal tests. Campus life was all about parties and horrible behavior with an occasional concert or trip to the small art museum. I feel cheated out of a sustaining, positive college experience even to this day. UConn left me very bitter and I worked very hard there. It was an inhumane environment that robbed my soul of joy and excitement. I regret going there but was forced to by a parents who wanted their taxes paid to this state to amount to something. All those taxes paid all those decades did not pay off--it was an awful educational experience and I regret it tremendously. I am someone who had potential to soar and I was crushed by this mill of an institution.

Question
My experience art UConn was mixed.Business - Management and Administration
My experience art UConn was mixed. Academically, everything was fine. The classes were challenging and the professors were helpful more often than not. Socially, it was tough for a couple reasons. First, I was the sole golf-loving "prep" from Fairfield County at UConn in the 1980's. Second, I transferred from a Midwestern school to UConn for my junior year and by then it seemed everyone had established friendships and cliques. It's interesting to note that I was in the 67th percentile of my class year with 1200 SAT's (620 verbal, 580 math). Those same scores today would put me about the 33rd percentile. That shows you how competitive UConn has become in the last 30 years.

Question
Engineering faculty are deadElectrical Engineering
Engineering faculty are dead enders just putting in their time until retirement. Most of them have no career outside academia, no practical experience in industry whatsoever, and they're not very good engineers at all.
