UConn’s Military History

In 1893, a dozen years after its founding, the Storrs Agricultural School became Connecticut’s land-grant college and the school took on the training of military cadets.

In 1898, following the declaration of war against Spain, four members of the graduating senior class headed from campus to camp. Among the four was Willis Nichols Hawley. On November 19, 1898, Hawley died of typhoid fever. He was the first graduate of the college to succumb to the hazards of war.

Following World War I, the Reserved Officer Training Corps, ROTC, was established on campus. During that war, nearly 500 students were trained in what was known as the Storrs Army Training Corps. Seven of them would fall in the “war to end all wars.”

The outbreak of World War II had the campus again on a military footing—by mid-1942, the Army Specialized Training, created through a petition to the U.S. Department of War, was the largest program of its kind in New England.

Through Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf War, Afghanistan and Iraq, University of Connecticut alumni have served their nation.

Submit A Name

The Memorial Committee has sought help in gathering names from all wars and conflicts in which the United States has been engaged since the founding of the University as Storrs Agricultural School in 1881. As additional names are submitted and verified, the Roll of Honor on display at the Alumni Center will be updated annually.

The Memorial Committee’s goals are to be inclusive and respect the memory of the fallen and their descendants, while maintaining the integrity and purpose of the Roll of Honor.
