A handful of students spoke on behalf of UConn’s thousand-fold student body yesterday during a professional visit from an accreditation team sent by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.

Every ten years UConn is reviewed and revisited by a new team of professors and administrators from other American universities in order to renew the school’s accreditation.
