What are some pros/cons to living in the Humanities LLC, or just any LLC in general? I'm an incoming freshman :) thanks!

Pros: everything

Cons: nothing

But seriously, learning communities are awesome.  The only problem I could see with the Humanities one is that it’s in Shippee, which is kind of far away from some class buildings, but please don’t let that deter you from living there.  I was in the pre-pharm one my freshmen and sophomore year, and let me tell you it’s really nice to live with people who have similar interests and goals as you, especially when you’re a freshmen trying to adjust to college.

10/10 would recommend.

What's your worse college roommate experience?

Can’t say I’ve ever had one!  My freshmen year I had a random roommate.  It worked well because we never really saw each other and were in the room at complete opposite points of the day.  Sophomore year I roomed with my BFF and that went well too.  For the past 2 years I’ve had a single.  Sorry to disappoint!

I was just invited into the WIMSE learning community for next year (I'm a freshman now, sophomore next year). Does anyone know anything about that learning community? Any opinions or experiences with learning communities?

When I was a Learning Community Ambassador I got to talk with some girls from WiMSE and they seemed to really enjoy it!  I don’t have any personal experience, but I’ve only heard good things.  Any follower input?

Suites are single sex, but the floors are co-ed so the gender of the suite across the hall from you may be different from your own!

Here you go CTC anon

Thanks!

How is gender split up in CTC? Is it single sex by floor or by building or just entire mix?

I’m assuming it’s single sex by suite, any follower input on co-ed floors?

Is there a large gay population at UCONN? What is the gay community like?

I’m not sure exactly how we can gauge how large the gay community is, because what percent of the school is LGBTQ is kinda hard to judge without knowing every single person?

The Rainbow Center is pretty active and has a number of different groups and a lot of people find community and friends there. There are also a lot of folks who are LGBTQ who don’t necessarily hang out in the RC a lot, but form their own mini communities through just meeting people. 

I’m not sure if that was very helpful? But there are a lot of different communities at UConn, its hard for the few people moderating this blog to know everything about all of them

I’m not sure if we would be able to give you advice about that… room sizes vary and I’m not sure we’d be able to judge from a picture?

If you’re concerned about things not being allowed, check reslife’s housing guide. They go pretty in-depth about all the things that aren’t allowed.

There are no guarantees, but if you have a 3.5 it’s pretty likely.

So I'm transferring to Storrs and I'm super confused about housing. Am I guaranteed off-campus housing? Because if I can't find housing how am I supposed to go to school...? Sorry but the website is super unhelpful and UConn hasn't returned my calls

Transfers are not guaranteed on-campus housing. UConn doesn’t facilitate off-campus housing for you; you need to find it yourself. 

There are a lot of apartments and houses for rent in the Storrs area. http://offcampus.uconn.edu/ is UConn’s page to help you through that process.

Has anyone gone to the west Hartford campus? are the classes just general classes and is it easy to transfer to storrs early or do a study abroad program

Followers… any input?

From working in admissions I know that transferring to the Storrs campus is based on your major.  For example, if you’re doing some kind of program where you need to start taking major specific classes that aren’t offered at a branch campus when you’re a sophomore, you can transfer to Storrs early.  If that isn’t the case, you generally have to wait until your junior year. 

I have no idea about studying abroad or what classes are offered there.  I am sure that a simple Google search can show you what sorts of classes you can take there, and calling the admissions # at 860-486-3137 would also be a good idea.
