Overview

West Hartford, Connecticut, Has Much to Offer University of Hartford Students

The University of Hartford is located on a 350-acre suburban campus in suburban West Hartford, Connecticut. This setting is perfect for college students who are looking to experience everything a major city has to offer but who don't want to compromise the benefits of a quiet, beautiful campus. Hartford, with its culturally rich downtown, is a center for exciting concerts and events. The city also has a wealth of internship and job opportunities available to students while they study and after they graduate. Hartford's location on the East Coast puts it close to Boston, New York, as well as some of the nation's most stunning landscapes.

Students who attend universities in major cities are often distracted by city life, and the city atmosphere can interfere with serious academic study. Because the University of Hartford is located in a quiet suburban area, the school offers students the best of both worlds. The opportunities of the city are combined with the campus' academic atmosphere. When they need a break from studying or an exciting place to socialize, students often visit the beautiful West Hartford Center, which is only a few miles from campus and features trendy shops, restaurants, cafes, cultural activities and events.

The First Year of College Builds a Foundation for Success and Happiness Throughout the College Years

High school graduates entering colleges and universities face a number of unique, once-in-a-lifetime challenges and experiences. Because college is an important time in life and represents a change from so much that has come before, the first year can often be difficult for students. These difficulties are minimized at colleges and universities that design the first year in a way that prepares students to become successful and to make the most out of their college experience. With a distinctive approach to learning, a diverse student body, small class sizes and a focus on personalized attention, there are no limits to where students can go.

One of the nation's most innovative and effective first-year experiences can be found at the University of Hartford. At this prestigious, mid-sized university, students have the potential to develop into outstanding individuals. The first-year experience is designed to help students begin and facilitate this development. Lift-Off, the school's orientation program, introduces students to campus life and eases their adjustment. It works in connection with the Lift-Off Adventure program, which allows students to form lifelong bonds with their classmates.

The courses students take during their first year at the University of Hartford introduce them to a variety of subjects and to innovative, creative learning and critical thinking. Students have the option of participating in a first-year learning community of 25 students who take several courses together based on a theme or in a particular major.

Students Enjoy a Wide Range of Opportunities at University of Hartford, Including Division I Sports and Study Abroad Programs

Although the University of Hartford is comparatively small, with 4,600 full-time undergraduates, its range of academic offerings equals or surpasses that of larger universities. With 84 undergraduate majors available, students can find a program of study that is exactly right for them, no matter where their interests lie. While the many available majors make the university appealing to a wide range of students, it is the school's extracurricular and co-curricular opportunities that make the campus unique among mid-sized universities. Students can truly find their passion and know that their classwork won?t be the only thing keeping them busy. As part of the Division 1 America East athletics conference, the University of Hartford provides a home to talented athletes with talented minds. In addition, over 100 clubs and organizations, ranging from a student newspaper to the Ski Club and the Science Fiction Society, are available to enrich the college experiences of every type of student. The university also offers exciting opportunities to study abroad in exotic locations such as Dubai.

The University of Hartford's Student Media Offerings Surpass Those of Many Large Universities

At the University of Hartford, students can get involved with life on campus in a wide variety of ways. One of the most notable ways that students engage with each other and with their community is through student media. With a television station, a newspaper, and two radio stations, the university has an impressive student-run media tradition, especially for a university its size. Even for students who are not involved in running them, these media are a way to engage with the community by learning about events and participating in a campus-wide forum for discussion of issues relevant to them. At the University of Hartford, student media is an integral part of the school's unique community experience.
