    Do not take chemistry at this school unless you want to fail and get kicked out of your department and put on academic probation.

    Once you get in, your completely on your own. Admin staff doesn't really care about your success. I went through hell trying to transfer into Storrs. Community colleges were in better shape than this building. Its the state, there are NO JOBS in ct, period. Most graduates go to NYC. If you want to get a job, go to a school in a place where the jobs are. Uconn's own economic report states 2016 until we see jobs returning to CT.

    This is a good campus, you are able to save some money and get the college experience. This is a commuter school, so dont expect to party all day and night. SGA has alot of simple fun events going on all the time. It's not as big as the Storrs campus obviously but try and make the best with what you have, if you cant I suggest you go elsewhere. The stamford campus is great because it's only a 50 minute train ride to NYC compared to farmland storrs. It's surrounded by many bars and restaurants (I enjoy happy hour downtown when I can), but it's not a party school. It's alo surrounded by so many financial firms and tech companies for job opportunities. ...Continue reading

    Transferring to UConn from a very small liberal arts school was the best decision of my life. The potential (success, friends, learning) is there, but you need to have the drive to get it.

Once you get accustomed to the fact that you're not near much, you'll be fine.

There's not a great variety of classes offered. It's more one on one oriented than the Storrs campus. Class size can be anywhere from 40something to 15 in a class.

Also, the food is just so bad, I went of food, and lost my appetite really badly. ...Continue reading

    Nicole is the best teacher I've had at UCONN by far!! She wants you to understand the material and do well. She is very accessible outside the classroom and is overall a caring person. She makes math seem easier than it is, and explains all concept clearly and thoroughly. Take a class with Nicole because shes the absolute best! ...Continue reading

    Most of this class is spent learning how to use MS Access, with the last few weeks devoted to GPS. You have to learn most of the GIS material on your own in the online graded modules. Exams are online in the testing center and he reuses past questions in later exams. Tells jokes often but occasionally crosses the line. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    3 papers and a final presentation. MGMT, 3 papers and a presentation. no tests or quizzes. Easiest class i've ever taken. He's a good guy and the class teaches you some pretty useful things for your future. Nice professor would recommend. ...Continue reading

    Very nice person, not so great teacher. Reads word for word from powerpoint, too fast. Exams are way to in depth for the amount of material on them. DO NOT wait until the last minute to study, and if you're looking for an easy A, you WILL NOT get it here. BEWARE!! Reads verbatim from slides, I received a good grade only thanks to myself, I literally learned nothing which is a big deal as a bio major. If youwant to learn anything at all take a different professor anywhere you can. Seems like she doesn't know what she's talking about. Not helpful outside of cl. ...Continue reading

    Great teacher, I recommend going to class if you want a good grade! He explained everything in a very organized fashion. Ask for extra help at any time, and he is very willing to help you out. He does not check the homework, but I suggest for you to do it. It really helped me to make sure I got the problems down. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 5/5
    Actually knows calculus! Very caring and wants you to pass. Always available to help before and after class. Quizzes once a week force you to learn and understand the material. Exams are hard and require studying. Goes through content quickly but uses real life exams to help understanding of concepts. Best math professor I've ever had! ...Continue reading

    Wasn't the best teacher I've had, but certainly not the worst. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    I took the honors section and it was the hardest class I have taken to date. Which sucks because it is 60% of your overall grade. The lectures are fun and you should go because he emphasizes what you should focus on while studying. Make sure you get good lab TA'S. Labs make up the other 40%. No study guides or practice tests. No preparation for tests other than lecture and the 80-120 pages of textbook per test (which are difficult). All that being said, the class is absolutely doable if you're motivated, lecture is always interesting, and he's a very nice guy. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 1/5
    Although the professor has office hours, she rarely shows up on time to assist her students. If you do, shes not that bad, if you dont, watch out. She goes very fast and doesn't like to answer questions during class. Do the homework! Then go meet with her because she likes office hours (but only if you have questions for her already). She has an accent so pay attention. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    Lectures are not always relevant to tested material. Professor Abbott tends to go on class-long tangents and is not clear as to what is important information because he is very persistent that all information is important. Slides are all posted online and you will need to read the textbook. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    She goes through the slides way too fast. If you make an appointment to ask for help in her class, her feedback is very vague. Whenever you ask for help before, during or after class she seems to be very discourteous and blunt. She knows what she is doing, but she can not teach for her life and you will not know what you are doing. Lectures are way too fast and not helpful at all. Her practice exams seem easy, but don't be fooled her exams are impossible and the quizzes are hard. MUST DO HOMEWORK. Best of luck. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    I mean, she does show that she cares about students (Ex. constantly reminding us about office hours, letting us know how we did on tests via HuskyCT and giving us feedback). But as everybody else has said, she goes through the ppt slides word for word in class. She does take the time to briefly explain some of the stuff on the ppts, which is good. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    She makes everything simple in lecture and her notes are all handwritten on the board. She explains everything in detail so its not really a class worth skipping. Theres also lots of quizzes. Its best to do the homework too because some problems show up on the test. Also her accent really isnt an issue at all&she makes sure everyone understands She is very clear and straight forward when it comes to explaining content and doing out example problems in class. She DOES NOT use power points, all notes are hand written on the board so GO TO CLASS! Exams are fair, if you go to class, pay attention, and study, you should be fine. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 4/5
    You don't receive any homework outside of class! Her tests are multiple choice. Do not buy the book because she gives detailed lecture notes. You cannot go into class expecting an A without planning to try and work for it. If you put in time and effort, you will fine. If you do concept checklists you get 15 extra points. ...Continue reading

    I have had my fair share of Chem Professors and she's very close to the top. The lectures are long but she explains the concepts really well. She actually tells you what's on the exams and they are pretty reasonable. She doesn't throw any curve balls at you, it's pretty straight forward if you're willing to put in some effort. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    Gets a lot of heat because Chem is such a hard topic. Def not an easy grader and will not give soft balls yet will help when she can. Average professor ...Continue reading

    Professor Shaw is an excellent professor! She gives you all the tools you need to pass the tests, just take advantage of them when they are posted. Very good teacher and gives a lot of interesting facts during class. Always willing to help students and always has extra office hours during the week. Overall, great teacher with good lectures. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    He's honestly not a bad lecturer. It's just that he makes this class so hard. Don't get the book because he is a powerpoint professor. He gives a take home quiz every week but he makes them so hard. Exams are even harder. If you want an A, don't take it with him because you will be putting in a lot of time and even then it may not be enough ...Continue reading

    She is not that bad honestly. She is willing to help you out but, of course, you have to ask for help it is not pre-k,it's college. She is fair and helpful. Lastly, a piece of advise, do homework ! It's really helpful because you are always practicing the material. And of course, do not wait until the last minute :) ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    Since her thick accent is hard to understand, her clarity isn't the best. Elsafty makes me dread going to class since it is two and a half hours long. She gives quizzes every class and two exams throughout the year. If you miss a class, she wont teach the material you missed. Just avoid this class and her if you can. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    course consists of many mini quizzes which are essentially homework. Her lectures are all powerpoints but they're the only stuff on the exams. Only 4 exams. She is sometimes confusing but if you go over the notes you should do fine. Often the questions on the exams use the same wording as in her notes. She posts powerpoints online which rules. She goes above and beyond what is required in order to help you succeed. Get ready to read, memorize and study hard! The exams aren't difficult if you put in the time. The class is demanding, so if you're a new student, be prepared! I haven't had a professor who has supported students as much as she does. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 3/5
    Her class is very fast paced. You have to study every single slide from every Power Point! She is nice, but be prepared to study, especially if bio is not your thing. The material is not tough you just have a lot of assignments. These include 5 exams, and lab work (with 2 mini exams). Do the extra credit and you should be fine. DO NOT BUY THE BOOK, everything you need is on huskyct. ...Continue reading

  • Class rating 2/5
    It's a tough class. Like everyone else says, Chem. is a tricky subject. She knows what she is doing, and has potential to be a great teacher (she's very smart), but is too fast pace. If she took time to explain things, the class would run until the actual end time of the lectures, which it doesn't. Tests are very difficult. I would avoid her. I actually really wanted to learn chemistry and was disappointed. I never missed a lecture and what she does is read the powerpoint. If there's math involved she'll do it on the board but she flys through it without really explaining what's happening and why. Basically, try not to take her. If you get her, good luck. ...Continue reading

    She is the best biology teacher I have ever met. Although the course itself is super hard, she is willing to share her experience and trys her best to let student understand. You will go for it! Will help when asked, but class is very tough & because she is a genius (4 degrees) she is tough to understand in lecture & goes too fast. Gets angry when students do poorly (which is always). 3/4 of the class is failing, but not her fault (it's the curriculum) Don't go to class. Self teach ...Continue reading

She's there for extra help but even when you go she's still not very helpful. just repeats stuff from class. This course is heavy on memorizing so if udk how to study you're screwed :/ ...Continue reading
