    Terrible graduate insurance. Come, get your degree and get out. With current stipends and cost of living, there is barely any money one can save.

    Pros

    Uconn is a great community of diverse learners and I was trained to organize my time well. I worked at the Homer D. Babbidge Library where I spend a large amount of time during my undergraduate career.

    Cons

    There are so many options and distractions by fun activities such as sports and club organzations. You really need to be able to balance your time effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to student concerns and movements.

    Pros

    Nice working environment which is full of nice people. The university is situated in a very nice location which has easy access to Hartford area .

    Cons

    The main issues are with the parking and Insurance. The old insurance plan we had was really nice, however the new plan does not cover most of the problems (dental etc.) The parking lots are situated far a way. Hard to walk on snowy, cold days. (specially when shuttles are limited during when undergrads are away)

    Advice to Management

    Making the campus beautiful is reall encouraging

  8. Help do experiment for research projects.
