When I first got to the school I loved it. It was difficult but it was fun and I thought I had good friends. Second semester my best friend and I got a random roommate and she seemed fine. WRONG. she had a best friend and that friend had a boyfriend. And the boyfriend was interested in me. After saying no over and over, he eventually raped me after a night of drinking and continuous ?no?s.? I told resident life because my roommate started threatening me telling me it was my fault, and I had torn my ACL during intramural basketball two days prior. I did not feel safe and sought help. The hall director said ?this is a friend problem, so we will not be moving you to another room?. After continuous threats and a deteriorating mental state I decided to withdraw from the university and it was the BEST decision I ever made. After telling the dean my reason for leaving, she simply said, ?that is so wrong. Can I move you now? We?re gonna work with Love (hall director) to handle situations like this better.? At this point it was too late and they did not end up following up or doing anything to prevent further instances. I later found out that it is not uncommon for women to get raped at UConn and for them to take zero action. If you care about your safety - do not go here.

Great value education, not the best in the world but the bang for the buck is powerful. No real alumni network to help afterwards in career at that time. Back then when I was a student the environment was very balanced. I work there now and it's become a left wing breeding ground. Programs have gotten better and they've put a lot of money into the university. If you're conservative look elsewhere.

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. Thu, 08 Dec 2016 08:52:01 GMT http://www.studentsreview.com/CT/UC_comments.html
