    UConn is the kind of school that you NEED to visit in order to make a decision on whether you want to attend or not. Campus is HUGE, isolated in a very small, rural town, and there is nothing close by to do. It is also extremely cold here during the winters (I live 2 hours away in the same state, and believe me it's so much more colder than my native Stamford).

    If you are looking for somewhere diverse, than UConn may not be the place for you. However, there is a lot of things to get involved with here.

    Tour all your school and really try to get a feel for the environment. If UConn is your top, research and find out what you can be involved in and get excited about these new experiences. Live in a learning community to make friends.

    If you want to completely destroy your mental health, come here. Located in the middle of a farm town, the University of Connecticut will make sure you are consistently being driven crazy. The closest thing you have to entertainment up here is the overhyped Storrs Center, which is literally like two small streets of restaurants. No wonder why such a large portion of students gain weight while they're here, the only thing to do when you're not doing schoolwork is eat food. One of my hobbies is living a healthy lifestyle, and I can't even do that because the gym is obnoxiously small & ALWAYS packed (even at 11pm) and the food is greasy and disgusting. I can give a whole other rant on just the gym, but ill leave it at this-- the football team has more bench/squat racks for the 80-100 players on the team than the rec center does for 19,000+ undergrads. And for the Sodexo-brand food (aka high school cafeteria food), I can't even accurately add up my calories because the administration fails to accurately measure the calories in the food they are making. Also, the school strategically closes the dining halls early/opens them late (esp. on weekends) so youre forced to pay for food from the student union or UC cafes (much more flexible hours). The view from outside of my window is the lovely Storrs Cemetery (Yes, there is a cemetery in the middle of campus). And for the overall campus itself, well, I really have no respect for the people who think this campus is "beautiful"-- it's dark and depressing and reminds me of the Industrial Revolution. Want to get off of campus? Good luck if you're a Freshman or Sophomore, as you need 54 credits to bring your car to campus and HOPEFULLY get a parking spot & there is nothing to do in a walkable distance. The bus system is terrible, the farthest from campus they will drop you off from campus is the depot campus, which is an abandoned mental hospital that some departments use for office space. Overall, this school should be rethinking how they spend their money-- is $71 million a year for just the basketball team alone really worth it when the university is in the middle of a BUDGET CRISIS?!?! The only reason it is ranked the 18th best public school and why I am leaving two stars instead of one is because of the above-average academics. I am a math major, and I do feel challenged in my classes, but the OK-at-best academics really don't make it worth going here. PLEASE, if this review turns even just one person away from UConn, I will be happy. SAVE YOURSELVES!

    This is not a compassionate university. They will blame any issue on students' own fault, and not providing any work around to help the student in trouble. They are God, and no one else shall make mistakes within, considering the students are assimilating into the society, and sometime would make careless mistakes.
