See What’s New at UConn Storrs 

Kick off homecoming weekend on Friday with a stroll (or ride) down memory lane. Hop on the Now & Then Campus Bus Tour and show the family all your favorite spots on campus, while checking out all that’s new. You’ll be surprised just how different campus is now.  

Gear Up at the Bookstore 

If you’ve worn your classic UConn T-shirt more times than you can count, it might be time for some new digs. Plus, check out the kids’ section so the whole family can rock their Husky pride at Saturday’s football game. Stop by the bookstore and show your Homecoming pin to receive 15% off your purchase.  

Cheer on the Huskies! 

It’s never too early to teach your kids the proper way to do a UConn chant. Sing along with the “Pride of Connecticut” UConn Marching Band at the Homecoming football game. Save on tickets for the whole family by using discount code HUSKIESFOREVER19. 

Get Your Science On 

Is your little one a budding biologist? Maybe the worlds next great engineer? Or do they just want to have fun with some really cool science? Science Salon Jr. is a free program, and every young scientist will receive a complimentary Science Salon Junior apron. Don’t wait to register, this event is sure to sell out again this year. 

Head to the Races 

Want to let your kids burn some energy before making the drive back home? Let them run their hearts out at the Lil’ Huskies Kids K. If you plan on running in the Huskies Forever 5K, activities will also be available for kids during the adult 5K.  

End with a Sweet Treat 

Does a trip to campus even count without stopping by the Dairy Bar? Enjoy your favorite flavor while overlooking Horsebarn Hill to make your trip complete. Remember that homecoming pin from the Bookstore? Show it at the Dairy Bar to receive 25% off your ice cream!
