Campus Visit Notes for University of Connecticut
Wow! what a pleasant surprise to see how much UCONN has changed since I looked there over 30 years ago. The building that has gone on has transformed the look and feel of the campus. Most of the buildings are brick with interesting architectural details. Prior to visit my son had no interest really in attending but now he said he could definately see himself there. I was very impressed with the students we met. All of them were very friendly and knowledgable and it was obvious they were very happy with their school.
I would certainly recommend a visit, I think that you will be pleasantly surprised.
