Review about University of Connecticut

Eugene M.
He graduated with a bachelor's degree at Uconn 2 years ago. At one time, I chose this university because of the low cost of the program, at that time the university was able to offer the largest discount of all the options considered. For its cost, the university is more than good. I had excellent teachers throughout my studies. If you had any questions, you could safely write to the teacher by e-mail and get an answer during the day. If there was a need to shift the deadlines for the delivery of some work (of course, for a good reason), they always met halfway. Overall, a good university.
3 years ago, we decided to be puzzled by the choice of a university for our eldest son. At that time, he was in the 10th grade of a school in Kazakhstan. For help, we turned to the Smaps agency, which we learned about from our friends. We had a wonderful manager, Elina, who was able to select for us several options for universities in the specialty of Mechanical Engineering, which we were interested in. We also organized an online tour of the campus. The child liked the university very much, decided to enroll. The process itself took about 3 weeks. The most difficult thing was to prepare with the IELTS test. My son went to preparatory courses for about 7 months. At the moment, the child is in the second year of his bachelor's degree, and he already has an impression of the university. First of all, I would like to note the equipment of the university: it is really impressive, especially in technical areas. There are a lot of different clubs and events for students. So far, there have been no difficulties with studying. My son says that he likes the teachers and subjects.
I am in my third year of undergraduate studies in Economics. I entered after a Russian school, before entering the first year I did a Pathway at an American college. I was especially pleased with how the study was organized during the pandemic. Since March 2020, the study has been completely online, and it was organized just fine. There have never been any disruptions to the schedule. And the teachers themselves began to treat students more loyally. The cost of the program was also then recalculated and this money was credited to pay for the next year. The university really has a large selection of events, due to the pandemic, of course, many have already become unavailable. But there is still some choice.
My daughter is a graduate of this university. She graduated from the Faculty of English in 2018. When choosing a university, we focused primarily on stomism. I wanted to find an option with a decent level of education for reasonable money. UConn, in this regard, suited us perfectly. Yes, the university really specializes more in technical areas. But at our faculty, the program was quite complex and extensive. Now my daughter works as an English teacher at a private school in the United States. The only drawback that we encountered during our studies was the lack of established connections for student exchange programs at our faculty. My daughter wanted to take this program at a university in Europe. But the university could not offer us suitable options. As a result, we were looking for an internship ourselves.
