    I just love how helpful all my professors have been. They're all concerned with their students, and on helping them do well. If there are any struggling students, the professors make it easy for them to contact. Inside the library, there are many free tutor centers, which I have definitely taken advantage of.

    Attending the University of Connecticut is cost effective if you are an in-state student. It runs about $23,000 per year without the cost of books. If you are a student paying your own way, it is beneficial to obtain scholarships that may help with your living expenses. I am a college planner, and have figured out many ways to obtain extra money while attending school.

    The great education that you get here is WELL worth the money. With the cost of Storrs being so expensive and rising every year, going or at least starting out at the Tri-Campus is a great way to save money and still get an amazing UCONN education.

    I moved to Connecticut six years ago was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Doing so opened up many doors for me. One of these doors opened recently when I learned that the University of Connecticut offers programs to those working full-time to earn their bachelor�s degree. UCONN'��s Bachelor of General Studies Program is a curriculum designed for me. Since July 2001, I have been the Executive Assistant at the Law Offices of Thomas P. Puccio in New York City. Although, my job title is Executive Assistant, I perform other tasks. For example, I work in the capacity of office manager, bookkeeper and paralegal. For twenty-five years, I have enjoyed the challenge of working for large and small law firms and law departments in various companies. I attended Brooklyn College from 1983 to 1985 majoring in theatre with a minor in communications. At Brooklyn College I had a high appreciation of learning. I was a natural when it came to reading, researching and writing essays. Often completing my term projects days in advance. Even before the age of Internet and personal computers! Regrettably, however, I discontinued my studies in theatre and communications in 1985, and my GPA suffered when I forgot to withdraw from the Spring 1985 semester classes that I had previously registered for. I thought that if I went to a trade school, I would be able to enter the workforce much more quickly and help with my parents� finances. Therefore, in 1986 I attended Taylor Business Institute graduating with a Certificate in Secretarial Studies. At the trade school, I continued to quench my desire to learn. Mock business meeting scenarios and visits to certain businesses within the campus vicinity added to my admiration of the craft of communication and writing. From 1987 until the present those mock business scenarios became my reality. However, for more than a quarter of a century, I lamented not completing my studies at Brooklyn College. Because of this, I have endured years and years of a repetitive dream with the same narrative: I�m in class at Brooklyn College; I don�t know what and where my next class is; and I roam all over New York City and get lost looking for help. This dream would always have me wake up frustrated. And since I worked full time in the legal field for as long as I can remember, I believed that I would never have the time to finish what I started in the Fall of 1983. Fortunately, I was mistaken and decades later my life changed drastically for the better. After adopting my six-year-old son JJ two years ago, I was motivated to be a father whose life he can be proud to imitate. One of the ways I can be a great example to my son is to accomplish what I started in 1983 and obtain my Bachelor�s degree. Once I began to contemplate opening the door to the University of Connecticut, the door on my repetitive dreams closed. Earning my Bachelor�s degree at the University of Connecticut�s General Studies Program will give me the opportunity of changing my line of work to one that will be more enjoyable and rewarding -- like a career in occupational safety. UCONN�s Bachelor of General Studies Program in the Health and Society Theme will not only refine my communication and organization skills, but will also assist me in accomplishing my goals. After all, every workplace must be a safe environment. So the need for safety coordinators is ever present. Also, my interest in psychology will be satisfied since the Health and Society Theme offers PSYC courses. This Fall, I am prepared to walk through the doors of UCONN�s Waterbury Campus, one of which I know I will never get lost finding my classes in, and earn my Bachelor�s Degree in General Studies. Not only will this bring a great feeling of satisfaction and joy to me, but will demonstrate to my son that he too can accomplish anything.
