Get to Know UConn!

As you go through the college decision process, you’ll want to know as much as you can about your potential schools.  Once you’ve been admitted into UConn and the Honors Program, there are several ways to find out what it’s like to be a Husky!

To really experience the day-to-day life of a UConn student, prospective students can sign up for a Husky-for-A-Day visit.  At their visit, prospective students will shadow a current UConn student.  They will attend a class or two, visit a dining hall, and get an inside look at the residence halls.  Throughout the day, their UConn student host will be available to answer any questions about academics, campus life, and everything UConn.

This year’s remaining Honors Husky-For-A-Day visits will occur on the following days:

  • Monday, April 14th
  • Tuesday, April 22nd

Visit and click on the “visit” tab for more information and to register!

When you attend an Honors Husky-for-a-Day visit you will have the opportunity to attend our Honors Meet and Greets, which are run by HIPS (Honors Initiative for Prospective Students) student coordinators.  At the Meet and Greets, students and parents will be able to mingle with current Honors students as well as Honors faculty and staff over light refreshments.  It is an extremely valuable experience to get acquainted with the many faces of the Honors Program at UConn!

Another opportunity to get to know UConn is the Spring Open House, which will occur on April 12th this year.  On this day, students and their families can get tours of the University and of the Buckley/Shippee Complex , the first-year Honors Learning Community.  There will be many opportunities to speak with representatives from various organizations and resources on campus.  In addition, there are presentations from the different schools and colleges, Residential Life, Study Abroad, Financial Aid, and more!  Again, visit for more information and to register for Open House!

We look forward to having you visit campus to learn more about UConn.  If you questions about these opportunities or the University, please email
