What impressed you positively?

"Students are actually pretty smart and fun to be around. Student interviewer was very cool. PBL session was interesting. The cafeteria isn't that bad!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"While in the gross anatomy lab, a professor came in and yelled at the tour guides, saying we shouldn't be in there, that it was a place of respect and not a zoo. It was nuts. But, to UCONN's credit, the guides spoke to the Dean of Students and he spoke to us and to the professor afterwards. We were permitted in there and it was strange she went nuts on us. I was impressed the Dean took the time to fix this. Went to a second year class... it was a little boring. Facilities aren't great but not bad, either." Report Response

No exit interview my day." Report Response
