What is your favorite class at the University of New Haven?

My favorite class at the University of New Haven would be intro to Criminal Justice and Criminal Law with Professor Maxwell. These 2 courses made me realize that this was definitely that major I wanted to be in, and my professor made me want to work hard for my degree. Also, Professor Maxwell makes any class a good class.

I chose University of New Haven because...

I chose the University since it's close to home. I only live roughly 15 minutes away. Campus feels like my second home so this is my home away from home. Also, campus is quite small (which I personally liked) so everything is in walking distance and since we have a smaller campus I get to know people easier compared to larger campuses. Finally my major; when I toured the University of New Haven numerous of times the Criminal Justice program always drew me back here. There's multiple options and paths you can follow with your major and concentrations.

What is your favorite place on campus?

My favorite place on campus would have to be in one of the huddle rooms in the Bergami Center. Its close to Starbucks and I get a private room to work in plus it helps me get out of my apartment for the day.
