Quick question for students who have worked in the admissions office. How is it? How many hours did/do you work?

There’s a lot of different jobs in the admissions office all with different duties and hours…. I’m a telecounselor and it’s awesome.  I need to work a minimum of 6 hours per week, but I can choose what nights I want to come in.

uhm because UConn’s located in an actual town where actual people live?? 

Technically it’s not on UConn’s campus, just next to it, but campus kinda got built up around it.

how often do professors accept extra students into a lab or discussion that's already at capacity?

every professor or class has a different policy. it just depends. but labs can’t over-enroll, it’s a safety hazard.

first i have to say that you guys are amazing, this tumbler page has answered soo many questions that i had and a few that i didn't know that i had lol. so I am a campus change student moving to stores dorm and its the first time I'm living in a dorm and i was wondering about early arrival, is it easer to move in or harder, by that i mean is it worth paying the 75$ fee for arriving a day early?

It depends when your early arrival would fall. Since campus change students move in on Saturday, you’d be moving in on Friday with all the newly admitted students (if that’s even allowed, I’m not sure… the website says that Friday is reserved for them only, so idk how early arrival would affect that) 

Campus is gonna be pretty hectic that day because most of those people have never moved in before, they don’t know where they’re going, and the WOW leaders are gonna be leading students all over campus starting in the afternoon

So as far as I can see it, the pros would be

  • Moving in at the same time as a bunch of people who are new to campus
  • WOW events to show you around campus and help you make friends
  • Husky Haulers help you move your stuff

That being said, if you don’t wanna get pegged as a freshmen or you don’t like tons of hubbub and stress, moving in on Saturday might be your better bet. Plus you save $75. 

Basically it’s all up to you but I’d call UConn and make sure early arrival is possible for Friday if that’s what you meant.

When will they post your classes on Blackboard? I like to be prepared before starting any of my classes

The classes don’t show up until the first day of classes.

Do the people in different learning communities who live in the same building see each other often? I was also wondering how big each learning community is

Yeah I mean its the same as living in the same dorm without an LC, you’re not restricted to just hanging out with your LC… and size varies depending on the Learning Communityl

Will uconn notify us our housing assignment or do we have to check it ourselves regularly?

I think they send out an email?

I read that you can only have one mini fridge per dorm room, do they really check? My roommate is my best friend and she already has one. I was planning on getting one myself since I don't want to take room up in hers

Yeah you really should only have one.
