The University of Connecticut (UConn) is a public research university in Storrs, Connecticut. Established in 1881, UConn is regarded as a Public Ivy. While the university is well respected for its research initiatives, especially those that foster global citizenship, one can hardly think about UConn without considering athletics. In fact, the university has produced many notable alumni who have played in the NBA, the MLB, and the WNBA.

UConn is ranked 72 nationwide. Its acceptance rate is 56%. UConn’s tuition rate is $18,524 per year for in-state students and $41,192 per year for out-of-state students. Over 24,000 undergraduates are enrolled, along with over 8,000 postgraduates. At UConn, students can choose from more than 100 undergraduate majors and over 85 graduate and professional programs. The university follows a semester-based academic calendar.

Being in a small, rural town, students count on campus life to keep them engaged. A defining part of UConn student life is sports. The UConn Huskies, who compete in the NCAA Division I Big East Conference, draw large, passionate crowds. The men’s and women’s basketball teams have nearly two dozen NCAA championships combined, and the women’s basketball team is known as the most successful women’s basketball program nationwide. When students aren’t attending a game, they might be playing in one themselves, as UConn has over 1,500 club sports teams. Plus, over 700 clubs and organizations provide students ample opportunity to engage in social, learning, and creative exploration.
