    Come tour the campus and see if this is the place for you! You can't really know if your going to like it or not if you don't at least enjoy the scenery

    I think that one of the biggest misconceptions about UConn is that it's an easy school to get into and do well at. It is becoming more and more competitive to get in, and classes are notoriously challenging- UConn degrees are respected by employers and graduate schools because of the intensity of the education here. Don't blow off UConn as a safety- even if it IS the easiest on your list to get into, it probably isn't the easiest to get A's at.

    Well the first tip could really apply to any school and is really cliche(you have probably read it in a ton of articles already) but you have to GET OUT THERE! Don't sit around waiting for the college experience to come to you, you have to go get it. Talk to as many people as you can, try different clubs that you wouldn't normally try, play intramural sports if that's your thing. Do whatever you can to get involved and to make college all it should be. Second tip is definitely bring clothes for all types of weather. The weather here can be weird and the first semester starts out really hot, but by the time winter break comes it gets very cold.

    If a large university is not for you, then do not attend the University of Connecticut. If you have to go here anyway because it is the only college you can afford, get involved with small clubs so that you can create a small community for yourself within the larger community that is the University. Do not be intimidated by the large lecture courses that you will inevitably be in during your first few years. Typically the professors are willing to help you outside of class and your classes will decrease in size as you advance in your program of study. If Greek life and athletics are not for you, do not be discouraged either. Although it may seem that they dominate the campus scene, there are plenty of other groups and people on campus. Utilize the services the school offers like the center for student advocacy, center for students with disabilities, the writing center for writing help, the q center for math help, and more. There are downsides to every college, but what you make of your experience is what counts.
