A city that is known mostly as the capital of Connecticut and "the Insurance capital of the world". With companies like Aetna and Travelers having their presence here, I guess that's a valid statement.
But it's also funny. Because this is a city where you are very likely to damage/lose your car, your workplace, apartment, and your life. So yeah, you might need insurance.
Overall it's not a city where you would go shopping with your girlfriend or take your family for dinner.
Dumbass: "Sheeit... some mofukkuh got shot at Hartford yesterday and I was around da corner. I couldn't see it, shee!!"
Me: You're fucking stupid.
Notice that most if not all of these definitions associate UConn with drinking and basketball. Well for those of you who don't go to this school I want to give a better view.
UConn is the University of Connecticut. Its main campus is located in Storrs, CT. It is, in fact, one of the greatest schools of this nation, as you will find it in the Top 100 Universities list of many critics and websites. The University has outstanding Schools of Business, Engineering, Pharmacy, Nursing, and Medicine among others.
Student life here is just what others mentioned - partying. The University is located in a town that wouldn't be known at all if it wasn't for the university. Surrounded by trees and farmland, isolated from the rest of the world, the students sort of have to spend their weekends on campus getting drugged and wasted for fun. It's a pity, really, because after a while it gets boring and to cure that boredom you abuse yourself even more.
Students at this campus are very big on watching basketball and are fans of their Huskies, some more than others.
The University has the biggest university newspaper in the entire (small) state - The Daily Campus.
