Most Helpful Review for University of Connecticut

The classes are very in depth. With the size of the classes, there isn't much one one one time with the professor, if any, so how much you learn depends completely on you. You can choose to stay on top of things on your own or you can utilize the vast amount of resources that UConn supplies for students to help with their studies. If you need extra help, then it isn't hard to contact the professor or a TA. If you choose not to pay attention and learn, then you won't and your grades will...

    5 out of 10. The campus is big and it takes a long time to learn where everything is located. The classes are very difficult and take a lot of time to study for. However, a huge negative is the cost is still very high for a state college.

    I rate Uconn an 8 out of 10. The academics there are challenging, and you feel as though you've learned a lot. The professors and staff are friendly and you don't feel like an outsider. Certain facilities within the Greater Hartford campus should be of higher quality but overall it's a great school.

    UConn is an incredibly helpful and noteworthy school. The courses offered are interesting and vast, while the faculty is so knowledgeable in their areas that you feel safe in their hands. Overall, the university offers a fun, challenging, and very direct learning (and socializing) environment at a reasonable cost.

    I think that the campus I attend could have better resources. However, I do like the classes themselves, and most of the teachers are willing to work with you outside of class. Overall, I would recommend this school to others.

    A flourishing university with engaging professors, a highly diverse student population, a spacious campus, and great buildings, including all seven dining halls! Easy to balance a mix of your social life (yes there are plenty of parties, greek life if you choose), but to remain strong academically. Add in the awesome sports teams and UConn really is the best value for your money.
