Culture Shock

Culture Shock is a column for underrepresented and marginalized UConn students to anonymously discuss their stories and experiences as members of those groups at UConn. This includes, but is not limited to: students of color, women, persons with disabilities and the LGBTQIA+ community. Culture Shock was created in collaboration with UConn Collaborative Organizing (UCCO) and the NAACP UConn Chapter.

  2. This column is not a call-out space — it is an anonymous forum for UConn students to share their experiences on campus. Any identifying information — such as names or apartment numbers — will be edited out.

  3. We will do our best to publish all articles that are submitted within a week, but we do retain the right to send articles back for edits if they do not meet our editorial standards of professionalism and respect.

  4. We only ask for your name and email address to confirm that you are a UConn student. Your personal information will not be shared in any way, shape or form.
