What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
Although some of the courses are tough, many of the professors are readily available and genuinely care about your academic success.
TF from Norwich, CT
My time at Uconn has been very demanding academically, but I have also learned a bunch since I got here. I'm only a second semester freshman so most of my classes are still electives, but even these are mentally stimulating and challenging. Most of my professors have been interesting, funny, and seem to actually know what they're talking about, not hired off the street. They also have been very willing to help throughout the semester. I spend as much time as I can at the library, doing homework and studying especially between classes during the day. You can definitely do well academically, but you have to apply yourself.

The classes are on a whole new level compared to high school. Although the whole college experience will take some time to get used to, the classes provide a way for students to explore what they love most. Much of our homework and studies are done through online companion websites, so we don't have to lug heavy books around, just notebooks and writing utensils or laptops. Also, professors and the TA's have office hours to help any students with classes, we have a library for studying as well as the Q Center, which is very helpful for students who need to brush up on their math and quantitative skills or just understand a concept in math they've never learned before. At UConn, there is a lot of help provided for students if they just know where to look.
M from Storrs, CT
I'm an English major, and I find that my coursework is challenging, but manageable. As long as you don't completely blow off your reading and studying you'll be fine. I've heard it's different in other major programs. Especially nursing, engineering, actuarial science, and computer science, people tend to have more trouble. But then again, that could have more to do with the nature of the subject. All in all, you should have the resources to do well, since all the professors hold office hours and tutoring is provided in the library free of charge (cha-ching!)
