University High School to Open in January WEST HARTFORD, CT- A new university magnet high school will soon be opening up on the University of Hartford campus. The school, which will be home to potential science and engineering majors, is supposed to open in January of 2009 with over 400 students. The school has been opened on Asylum Ave since 2004, but the new school will be much more modern, with more advanced technology and better equipment. Many Hartford students have expressed concern that the construction, which is going on behind Public Safety, will cause even more traffic around campus. University Magnet School dean Alan Hadad says this won’t be a problem. “One of the things that I was insistent upon in the construction project was that all construction vehicles enter via the external portion of Mark Twain Drive as opposed to coming through the University” Mark Twain Drive will also serve as a secondary entrance to the University once the school is finished. Hadad is hoping that will help to alleviate traffic around the campus.

Unformatted text preview: The most impressive feat of the current high school on Asylum Ave is the number of women that are involved. The current average of women enrolled in college that are science or engineering majors is between 25 and 30%. “We have 35% women enrolled in the high school of science and engineering. We think this is a significant feat compared to what is the situation on a national level” says Hadad. Another advantage to being enrolled in the high school is that students can earn college credits while still in high school. The University will be offering classes for the high school students to take during their free time. The project is being funded by the state of Connecticut and the federal government. It costs approximately 45 million dollars. “This is one of the many things that will bring the University distinction. I’m looking forward to the day where this school will achieve the original vision I had for it, to be ranked among the premier high schools in the country”....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
