I loved the community in which I...
General Education Requirements--where the professors expect that you don't want to work or learn anything, and you don't. Waste of time. Also, the campus--or rather, the 20,000+ people between 18...
The community of the school around events such as the Basketball Championship and other events put on by the school.
The large class sizes...especially introductory classes.
UConn has a great combination of degree programs, professors, and facilities that provide for an excellent learning experience.
The location makes it difficult to find internships and jobs close by to the University.
Another awesome thing is Living on campus!! A residence hall at UConn is like none other...I've made some of my best friends with my neighbors in my dorm at UConn. Tons of students live on campus and stay on campus on the weekends, so there is always something to do and always something going on. Take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live on a college campus--it's one you won't regret!!
Every student at this school needs Initiative. Without it you will fall through the cracks. No one is going to hold your hand, if you want it, you have to go get it!
