This includes students who may just be learning their immigration status for the first time during the college admissions process.

The Inside Scoop on Junior Year

Hi everyone!

My name is Kasia Paszek, and I am a Junior at UConn Stamford! I am currently studying Psychological Sciences and my goal is to go to graduate school and become a Forensic Psychologist! I would also love to teach Psychological Sciences at the Undergraduate level at some point in my career. I am from Bethel, CT and have been living on campus here in Stamford. A little bit about myself - I was born in Poland and moved to the United States when I was four years old! I'm a backpacker and love hiking and camping.

One of my favorite aspects of living on campus is the sense of community here at UConn Stamford. Due to the small class sizes, you have the ability to develop really strong relationships with your classmates and professors. The time that you spend in the classroom learning is really valuable and here at UConn Stamford, professors address you by name and actually get to know you, so that you're more than just a face!
