I go to UConn. Not only do they not care about the students (they act really good till you pay then they blow you off every which way possible).
That’s very ironic you said that, because I was actually referring to UConn about not calling me back or returning emails. I emailed three different people several times, left phone messages, and didn’t hear back. I didn’t want to mention any school names, but I’m glad I’m not the only one who feels the same way.
Man, sorry to hear about your experience at the facility. I guess they put too much emphasis on ‘recreation’ and not ‘training’. That sounds pretty weak. Do the athletes train there as well, or do they have their own facility?
All that aside, you said the program is good, are you working on undergrad or grad? How much longer until you’re done?[/quote]
Im surprised. UConn treated me great until I signed up to attend. I have had problems everywhere. Reslife, the gym,heads of the departments, and the worst is they don’t have anywhere near enough parking on campus so everyone gets a ton of parking tix. They just have so many kids wanting to go there that they don’t give a fuck about you, cuz if I leave 10 more kids will be dying to get my spot.
And ya the rec facility is bs. I had probs with them 3 times telling me exercises I couldn’t do. 1 was hang cleans, 2 was standing calf raises (Standing on quarter plates in the rack with the safety pins in so if i dropped the bar it was only moving about 3 inch to the pins) and the first time was doing deadlifts, one of the kids that works there (ironically about 300lbs) wasn’t sure if it was an accepted exercises, luckily I got out of that one.
I was just stunned, I finally got a hold of the head lady and she says the gym isn’t made for building strength, so I told her I’d go workout at the fball one when the fball team wasn’t using it (just got this new football center that is beautiful but only for fball guys).
I’m not in the exercise program, but a bunch of my boys are. Im going into my senior yr tho.
The education you get is very good, I just wish someone told me the bs that went on at uconn. Ive been to a bunch of schools that didn’t have 1/2 the students uconn has that has a much bigger and better gym for the students and a lot less bs too.
