I absolutely love UConn. The faculty is fantastic and I've gotten to know many of my teachers. There are many opportunities for research and internships if you look for them. The School of Business networks a ton and you get fantastic contacts. There's always something to do on campus. Wouldn't go anywhere else!

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.

Things can be very impersonal here and it is easy to feel like a number not a person. When my dorm mate was killed by a driver speeding through campus as she crossed the street (195), her parents were sent a bill for her room key. That is how very cold and impersonal this place can be. Be sure that you will be comfortable around a lot of parties and all that rowdiness as there is a lot of it. How some people became successful after the life they led at UConn is beyond my comprehension. Maybe they just grew up eventually. I was very disappointed in the large classes and the lack of creativity and enthusiasm in academics. Except for a few creative professors--everything was rote and textbooks were dry and not even appropriate to the subject. You sometimes have to buy the textbook the professors wrote. A lot depends on what college you are in or what major you choose as some departments are better than others. I was treated very badly by professors in the College of Education and later went on to earn a master's degree in education at a smaller university. I graduated at the top of my class and my professors not only knew my name--they knew me and what my potential was. It is easy to get lost at UConn. If you go here--be open to making new friends and having as many new expereinces as you can--there are resources at the school---but you will have to find them on your own. Private school this is not.

Not a single one of them is interested in actually advising. There is also an effeminate man, who is qualified but is very rude. The teachers are good, the advising staff must be kicked out and replaced with younger, energetic (not people from nursing homes) who are clear and ethical. UCONN - please do not use your advisors as pimps, please look after your professors, uphold academic standards and give capable students a chance to shine, this will help you earn more revenue. You don't have to turn into an greedy, desperate money-grabbing pig of an institution. Tue, 29 Nov 2016 03:33:48 GMT http://www.studentsreview.com/CT/UC_comments.html
