"The Allied Health Major (general path) has a great variety of courses for students to take that will help prepare them for their career, for graduate school, or are even great if you are just simply interested in the subject. My favorite classes were always in the Allied Health Department. I remember my senior year I took Ergonomics and a Geriatrics course. I had no idea at the time how useful they were going to be in graduate school for occupational therapy. I feel that I am able to contribute more in class and have a unique perspective on various topics presented in class. Also, (most) of the professors are absolutely wonderful and great teachers. Not to mention, they are great advisors as well. Highly recommend this program. ALSO if you are planning on going to graduate school, I highly recommend researching if you can get credit for a health related internship or shadowing. This is something I found out about right before I graduated and was so upset I didn't know about it or do it! It will help so much if you need to get hours before graduate and will look great on your resume, and you can get school credit for it!"

"I cannot recommend this school nor most especially this department; though I will hope that it has changed over the years. The English department was not supportive nor inclusive. It was a huge school. There was very little caring from the professors. The Study Abroad department was judgmental and discriminatory. Though I asked questions and sought advice, not one professors shared scholarship ideas for study abroad. In fact was professor was rude enough to directly suggest that I would not do well because my family moved a lot during my childhood. The faculty during my time at this school was pig headed and small minded. I have worked as a teacher for 30 years now. I have traveled the world. I have been fortunate enough to meet others with open minds and better attitudes then those of the English Department at UCONN. I am ashamed to say I graduated from this school."

"UConn was the perfect college experience. Not only is it one of the top public schools in the country, with in state tuition I was able to get a top education at an affordable price, Uconn's campus is beautiful and the school pride is charismatic. The academics are very strong, with recognition across so many disciplines including business, engineering, nursing, and teaching. As a marketing student, the business school at Uconn offered a many networking opportunities, allowing you to identify job opportunities early on and secure internships over the summer at top companies in the area."

"My time spent at the University of Connecticut was invaluable. Not only was it the best four years of my life, but it prepared me infinitely well for veterinary school and beyond. The quality of the Animal Science Department is unparalleled. I only wish they had a veterinary school so I could have stayed longer."

"UConn offers many ways for students to feel interconnected in such a large campus. The university has 100+ clubs and organizations for students in order to get involved. The involvement fair at the beginning of each year is a great way to meet new people, learn about potential opportunities, and explore interests. The university also has several cultural centers to help students connect with diverse students and staff on campus. Go Huskies!"

"UConn is a great school because of the professors and the people. You will get a great value for your education as an in-state student, especially compared with other private colleges in the area. The location is terrible because it is in a completely rural place. There is nothing to do in Storrs, except for events happening at UConn. If you are looking for a great nightlife, go somewhere else. They are not great with financial aid, so apply for outside scholarships if possible. There are also lots of jobs on campus which makes it easier to pay for housing and food."

"I love everything about this school. I met my best friends and earned a wonderful skill set. The campus is beautiful and the staff are inviting. The staff are extremely helpful and experienced. I became heavily involved in the community on campus and it was one of the best decisions. At such a large school, it is important to find a way to make the campus feel smaller."

"UConn was a pretty good school, and overall I was happy with it. Every teacher I had associated with the WGSS program was fantastic, and contrary to many people's gripes with WGSS programs, they did not teach according to a dogma. They taught ways to critically think about various issues concerning many disciplines, from STEM to social sciences to cultural studies. It was a multidisciplinary program through and through and home to some of the most amazing professors I've had to this day. As for the psychology department, the other program I had a lot of experience with, it wasn't quite to the level of the WGSS program. It was a good program, but some individuals definitely seemed more focused on their research than teaching. Still, though, the psych program was a good program, especially if you're interested in I/O psych."

"UConn is an incredible school. I graduated when it was still a construction zone (many many years ago:) and Storrs looked quite different then than the beautiful college town it is today. However- many things remain consistent- you will get an impeccable education here, and the community you will build will be unparalleled. UConn is full of opportunities to get involved- whatever it be in athletics, greek life, student government...whatever your thing is, there is a community that supports it at UConn. Storrs is not an overwhelming place to be- it is manageable to navigate, while still being a huge and respected state university. I got my degree in English and managed to build an incredibly successful career in sales before coming back to my true passion (writing!) so you really can do anything there. Also- it is FUN! You will be a proud Husky for life :)"
