“When I visited UConn Hartford for the first time I just loved the atmosphere, and the smaller class sizes gave me the opportunity to connect with my professors a lot more. UConn Hartford truly makes you comfortable with who you are and part of this is because the faculty and staff are so welcoming and they truly care about your well-being.”

Jay Shaw

Human Development and Family Sciences

Shaw is most passionate about the impact and influence of public policy on local families — an area he plans to build his career in after graduation.

“What I love most about UConn Hartford is the people. The students, faculty, and staff make the campus a great place to be. I have a spectacular group of friends and it’s really great to see how people connect with one another no matter your skin tone or background, which makes it a great space to talk about all issues. I find that inspiring.”
