"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!"

"The University of Connecticut, located in Storrs, Connecticut is a school that I attended to achieve my undergraduate degree in Communication Disorders. I attended UCONN between 1990-1994. During this time I found my college experience to be exceptional. I lived on campus in South Campus, and had a wonderful experience with all that dorm life had to offer. UCONN is a large school, spread out over an equally large campus. For me, I really thrived on the size of this school. It provided plenty of opportunities to join clubs and activities that interested me, while still giving me a sense of both community and anonymity. The variety of classes offered both in and out of my major were sufficient, and I found that, although it was a large school my professors were interested and engaged in my learning. Since leaving UCONN it has been renovated and is now one of the top public schools in the nation. On a recent Alumni visit back to the school I was amazed at its transformation, and given the opportunity to attend all over again, I would jump at the chance."

"It seems to be the paradox of the modern student that the more professional opportunities that become accessible, the harder it becomes to decide on a career that one personally identifies with. In my personal experience I found the ACES program that is in place at UConn to be exceptionally helpful when I arrived at the university as an undecided major. ACES is part of a special department outfitted with advisors and resources to help undecided students arrive at an academic goal and a plan of study. Early on, my advisor helped me choose courses that allowed me to work toward graduation requirements while also sampling various areas of study I found interesting. Even after staying in the ACES program until second semester sophomore year I found it easy to graduate on time with my decided major of Allied Health Sciences with a minor in Molecular and Cell Biology and also having fulfilled the requirements for a Dental School application. I was confident in my major because ACES helped me round my education with subjects that I otherwise would have not known about or not known whether I wanted to pursue as a career. This system works particularly well at UConn because the institution provides a high standard of education and career preparedness across a wide array of disciplines."

"UConn is a university that has something for everyone. It is a large university that some may believe you can easily get lost in the crowd at. However, if you pursue what is interesting to you, then there is no way you can get lost in the shuffle. At UConn, you learn to advocate for yourself because the professors do not baby you. You learn to be self sufficient while earning a great education."

"UConn is an excellent university. It is very rigorous academically and graduates intelligent and hard working students. However, it is important that students are able to motivate themselves because professors are adequate at best. UConn is primarily a research school and professors are definitely more interested in their research projects than their students. It is up to the individual stay current in their classes, but UConn provides plenty of resources."
