"UConn has anything you will ever need. If you know what you want in a school, they'll be sure to have it. If you're pretty fickle and always change your mind about what you like or are involved in, they will be able to cater to all your needs. The sports are amazing, the people are great, and you won't forget your time at UConn for the rest of your life."

"I loved UCONN. It was a place where I made lasting friendships and met fantastic people. Everyone thinks UCONN is huge but once you find your group of friends and get into your classes it really does feel small and like a community."

"I really enjoyed my 4 years as an undergraduate at UConn, Storrs because it is a nice big campus which as progressed since l first started off as a freshmen in 2010. There has been a lot of construction and more openings of stores, recently a price chopper opened there and they needed a grocery store for the students. My best experiences have been with the cultural centers l have been a part of because l got to connect with my cultures l take so much pride in. l was a part of the Puerto Rican Latin American Cultural Center and the African American Cultural Center. There are other cultural centers such as: Asian American Cultural Center, rainbow center and the women's center. Each center has their own unique organizations and activities which are all important. l encourage ever student, regardless of where you are from to attend events sponsored by each of these centers because you will definitely learn something new and it will help you keep an open mind which is a great thing to have in any career. You want to have a growth mindset on things rather than a fixed one which will hold you back from succeeding. l really enjoy participating in homecoming which happens every fall and the cultural centers also take part in that. There are great greek organization is you are interested in that as well and they also participate in homecoming. If you enjoy performing there are plenty of organizations that do that, l was a part of one which was part of the African American Cultural Center and we did hip-hop dancing and stepping which is very powerful. Take advantage of all the resources the campus has such as career development center which help with resumes and mock interviews to help you prepare for your future interviews, cover letters etc. There is a writing center and a Q center to help with your Q courses. There is also an academic achievement center if you want help raising your GPA and this program definitely helped me with that. There are plenty of degree programs so don't be worried if you start off with an undecided major because l started off like that and as l took on leadership roles on my campus and took more classes l was able to really see where my passion was at, and no major is easy, they are all hard in their own way but you just have to persevere through every obstacle. Just keep an open mind with everything and you will get very far."
