The Inside Scoop on Sophomore Year

Aileen Bautista- Class of 2022

My name is Aileen Bautista and I am a Sophomore at UConn Stamford. I am from Fairfield, CT and I commute to Stamford. I am a Psychological Sciences major in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. I chose Psychological Sciences because I knew I wanted to know more about why people thought, behaved, and felt in different types of situations.

What do you like most about UConn Stamford?
I think one of the best reasons to choose UConn Stamford is because of its diversity! The students here are all so friendly, and I like seeing students from all types of backgrounds. This was something that my High School was definitely missing, but something I did not realize until I started at UConn Stamford. The environment here is very welcoming, and the students here are  friendly. If you are looking to get involved I highly suggest joining clubs. Within the clubs you will find people that have the same interests as you and you will definitely connect with them outside of the club meetings. I am currently a part of the Huskies for Charity Club, which is where I met a good friend of mine.   I would not have met her if it were not for the club that brought us together.

How is your Sophomore year compared to your Freshman year of College?
One of the main differences that I would like to point out is that during the second year of college you will tend to have a bigger workload than from your previous year. This being said I suggest any rising Sophomores to set a plan that will help with reminding them about assignments, whether it is an app, a planner, or a calendar. It is very essential in order for any and all assignments to be turned in on time.

What is one piece of advice that you would give to a new UConn Stamford student?
As a student here, it is really helpful to seek help when you need it. All my professors are always willing to go the extra mile for me when I need it. Whenever I am having trouble with a homework set or need to clarify something I know I can always count on the help of the Professors at UConn. Additional resources are also available on campus to help students when they are stuck. The Writing and Q Center in the library, are two great resources where students will find tutoring in several subject areas, and advice when writing any sort of paper.

What are some of your favorite activities in Stamford?
In between classes, my friends and I tend to go out for lunch, go to the Mill River park, or walk around the Stamford Town Center. One of my favorite restaurants would have to be Fiesta on Main, which I recommend to anyone looking for some classic Peruvian food.
