The University of Connecticut, founded in 1881, is a public, comprehensive university. It is recognized for its excellent academic programs and internationally acclaimed faculty. In addition to an extensive variety of top-quality academic programs offered at the undergraduate level, UConn is the only public university in New England with a School of Medicine, School of Dental Medicine and School of Law. Programs are also offered through the Colleges of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and Liberal Arts and Sciences; the Schools of Allied Health Professions, Business Administration, Education, Engineering, Family Studies, Fine Arts, Nursing, and Pharmacy; and Ratcliffe Hicks School of Agriculture. The university is fast becoming the school of choice for incoming freshmen: enrollment has jumped dramatically in recent years while academic quality has also increased. The university is currently in the midst of an historic building program called UCONN 2000, a nationally unprecedented ten-year, $1 billion program to renew, rebuild and enhance UConn's campuses. The 4,104-acre campus is located in Storrs, 30 miles from Hartford.
