Rachael - 3/18/2019
Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2003
"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 :)"

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 1994
"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."

Brianna Martone - 12/27/2018
Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2013
"Particularly through the ACES Exploratory Program at the University of Connecticut, I felt as though I received useful guidance and mentoring when I was unsure about my undergraduate path and overwhelmed by possibility. Since Uconn is a large University, there are endless possibilities for Majors and Minors and even the opportunity to create/build your own Bachelors through an Individualized Major Plan. Since it is a Liberal Arts College, I had to take General Education courses under different subject areas and this exposed me to an area of study I never knew existed. I ended up receiving an opportunity to study abroad in South Africa during a Human Rights Intensive Program in CapeTown and truly feel as though this opportunity in addition to my entire undergraduate experience, prepared me for life after college."

"Overall, I absolutely loved attending this University. The opportunities to be involved are endless and there is truly something for everyone there. The campus is stunning and being able to experience each season there truly allows you to appreciate its beauty. Additionally, if you are someone who is in to sports there is almost always some game going on, and Basketball is HUGE here. #BleedBlue"

MEAGHAN FOSTER - 7/9/2018
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2012
"Coming from a small private school, the University of Connecticut was a school much larger than I bargained for. My first months were marked by confusion and lostness, however, it didn't take long for me to get connected to a smaller family on campus. After developing this community I fell in love with the school. There are so few schools in the Northeast where you can be proud of the sports program and UConn definitely doesn't lack in that. I also LOVED my professors. The program I got into, Diagnostic Genetics, was a small one, but it was the best fit for me. Professors were dedicated to my success and thriving. I am a motivated student, but they taught me more than I could imagine."

GRAD MBA STUDENT - 6/11/2018
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2019
"This school is not recommended at all to any international student. Don't fall into the trap of even getting a GA. The school administration s**** and the professors are a waste. Most of the data they publish online is fraud and the reality is not even 1% close to the actual numbers. Students struggle to find internships and the school administration then comes to the classes to yell at your poor performance. At the career fairs hosted, the companies don't sponsor international students. Most of the bright students failed to get internships and full time offers and are still struggling."

Graduation Year: 2015
"The University of Connecticut is an extremely impressive public university. It has worked hard to invest in programs and infrastructure to support cutting edge research in the sciences. It has also made a significant investment in it's campus, updating the bookstore, adding new buildings, and updating the recreational facilities. UConn provides a fun college atmosphere combined with rigorous academics. It was a fantastic experience for my time as an undergraduate."

Charity W. - 3/23/2018
Degree: Cultural Studies
Graduation Year: 2016
"Choosing the University of Connecticut was a solid choice for me. It was affordable (I was an in-state student), the professors in my program (Africana Studies) were well-versed in their subject areas. normally responsive on email and most importantly invested in the academic enrichment of their students and helping them make effective connections so they could navigate into their chosen professions. I definitely would not be the international development professional that I am today without that program and the mentorship of my professors!"

"The University of Connecticut provided me with a well-balanced college experience. The academics were competitive and rigorous, and a majority of my professors made courses extremely engaging. I felt challenged without being overwhelmed, and grew immensely as a person. I loved being around fellow students that valued their academics, I felt a lot of positive camaraderie. The school spirit was fantastic."
