How can students contact you?

Students can contact me by completing this form. Feel free to ask me any questions about my experiences as a transfer student at UConn!


Tell us about yourself. 

I am a Norwalk, Connecticut native and a junior majoring in Computer Science. I have been interested in technology all my life. By the age of two, I knew my way around computers and by age eight, I was exploring child friendly coding languages. Towards the end of my high school years, I decided to go on a weight loss journey. Throughout this weight loss journey, I adopted an interest in fitness and outdoor activities. Exercise and other outdoor activities like biking, hiking, and fishing help me self-reflect and destress.


What is your favorite spot on campus?

My favorite spot at the UConn Stamford campus is the student resting area near the entrance. It is a rather large and sometimes rowdy area, but it is a great place to meet new people and study.


What do you love most about being a UConn student?

I love the variety of opportunities at my disposal. The scholarship opportunities and panel discussions have been so beneficial in my college career. UConn does a great job at setting up their students for future success.


What is your best advice for a UConn transfer student?

Acclimating to UConn can be a daunting process at times. There is a lot of information that you will need to familiarize yourself with to be successful. My best piece of advice to new transfer students is to check your UConn email every single day. Your email is not just a portal for your professors to message you, it is filled with vital information that will guide you through your UConn experience. Your advisors and other administrators will often email you links to the UConn Daily Digest, scholarship opportunities, grants, panel discussions, and other extracurricular programs. Utilizing your email will help you further your future career and learn more about what it means to be a Husky!
