Where are we going today?

The Museum of Natural History and Connecticut Archaeology Center are home to the University of Connecticut's Anthropological Collections and repre- sents the single largest repository of Connecticut Native American, colonial and industrial artifacts in existence. The materials housed here document over 11,000 years of Connecticut's past. Many of the artifacts are one-of-a-kind, representing a last link to our early cultural heritage. The Office of State Archaeology is charged with both the conservation of these collections, to ensure their continued physical preservation, and their curation, to make sure the information they contain is systematically organized and readily usable. Since the formation of the OSA, the collections have evolved into an invaluable resource for historical and archaeological research projects, graduate student theses and dissertation research, and public educational exhibits. The collections are not only a vital resource within the University community; their reach is felt throughout New England.

    My experience while at UConn was fine. It is since then that I have a problem with the school. Don't call me looking for money when you are paying sports coaches outrageous salaries. Also, Kevin Ollie and his staff boycotting the Final Four is disingenuous. I am sure they were told not to go by the president in keeping with comrade Malloy's edict. I do not personally condone discrimination against anyone but in the USA I know (or thought I knew) small business owners should be free to hold to their religious beliefs...period.

    My best friend's dorm's air conditioner is broken. She waited for a week and then nobody come! And then she called again! And people said that if they wanna fix it, they need to shut the all air conditioner in the whole dorm, thus they can't do it. Three people came and said the same thing to her! Is it because we are international student? Why?

    This is the worst school for computer science.The portal even doesn't specify prerequisite for the courses , the professors don't even care if prerequisites are needed or not but the faculty thinks they are the best in CS.1 star since I cannot give it zero or infact negative score.It is based on my evaluation.I am a NYU Alumni and my wife was studying in Unconn and then she took transfer to NYU in the next semester.
