Three Pieces of Advice for Prospective Students:
- It’s okay if the friends you make on move-in day of freshman year aren’t the same friends you have a year down the road.
- Be as involved as you want to be! Most clubs at UConn are always interested in adding new members and it’s a great way to make friends.
- Make time for yourself—college can get overwhelming if you don’t take the time to relax and do things that you enjoy.
