From personal experience, how much more difficult are 2000 and 3000 courses in comparison to 1000 courses? As a sophomore would it be smarter to transition into 2000 courses before 3000 courses?

It’s really on a case by case basis. There’s really no generalizing that can be done. It’s seriously all individual. The course number itself doesn’t matter so much as the course content. I really don’t think it would make a difference trying to specifically do 2000s levels courses. It all depends on what your plan of study dictates. Make sure to double check everything with your adviser. 

Other mod response: 

Honestly, I think it just depends on the class… I’ve taken some pretty hard 2000 level classes and some easy 3000 level classes— what you probably want to pay attention to more is the second number, which tells you how specific the topic/material is, because a 3800 class is gonna need more background than a 3100 class. But again that’s just sort of a general guideline and may or may not be accurate everywhere.

I would say you should try to talk to your advisor about what’s typical for people in your major, or ask friends if you can, because each major is very different. However, if you’ve never even taken a 2000 level class and you’re concerned, maybe wait until next semester. If there’s a class you absolutely would LOVE to take that’s a 3000 level and you’re a strong student, I wouldn’t let that stop you, though.

@breakingbreadd replied to your post “How do you apply to work at the co-op?”

I don’t think the co-op posts on the student jobs site, you have to get a paper application. As of now, the hiring manager probably has everyone she needs for the fall because she hired them at the end of the spring semester. I work at the co-op

thespicymuffin replied to your post: “Do you know how easy it is to be in both the Honors Program and Greek Life?”:
It gets easier as you go; there’s a lot of expectations on freshmen in the Honors program and adjusting to the Greek life can be hard in addition to the regular college adjustment; it just takes serious time management.

Would you say that the coop has reasonably priced t shirts n sweaters?

Uhhh honestly some of the stuff is reasonably priced but in my opinion the sweats are a little expensive, like it was about $34 for a pair of sweatpants and some sweatshirts run upwards of $60 depending on what brand you want (like obviously things like Under Armor and Victoria’s Secret cost extra)

But I’m pretty sure all college apparel is like that, unfortunately

According to the SHS website, these are the services offered by UConn:

I’m not sure if endocrinology falls under any of those things, so it might be good to investigate yourself and/or call them to find out

Can you use points to get value meals at grab-and-go locations? Or can you only use flex passes? Thanks!

Yep!  I believe it’s 7 points per meal.

Do they really enforce the 'no candles' rule?

Yes.  Some may argue it’s more enforced than the whole no underage drinking thing.  If an RA sees a candle in your room, that will be bad news for you.  DON’T DO IT (this is not sarcasm I swear).
