While most of us aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to summer, the longer days will soon become shorter—and busier! The fall season is almost upon us, which means we’ll be welcoming the Class of 2020 to campus. There are also plenty of exciting events coming up, including the Geno Auriemma UConn Leadership Conference (you can learn more in this newsletter).
The return of fall also means that one of my favorite events of the year is almost here: Huskies Forever Weekend. This year, the fun extends over two weekends—one just isn’t enough for all that’s planned! Storrs will be the place to be as we share the friendships, joy, and memories that made our UConn experience so memorable and special. It’s our way of thanking each and every one of you for being a part of the alumni family.
This year, we’ve got a lot of great activities for you, but here are three things that simply can’t be missed:
- Paint ‘n’ Pint at Horsebarn Hill (with Dairy Bar ice cream!)
- UConn vs. University of Central Florida Homecoming Football Game
- The Storrs Center Stroll
With a number of reunions from nursing and engineering to our 40th and 50th classes, as well as live music and learning opportunities, there’s something for everyone. And don’t forget about our Huskies Forever 5K. This year, the run will take place on October 16 and feature a buffet breakfast, parade, and carnival.
You can find more information about these events by visiting our Huskies Forever Weekend page. Come back to UConn and remember the fun you had—and make new memories for the future.
Our hashtag for the weekend is #HuskiesForeverWknd. Share your stories, memories, and pictures, and we’ll share them with the rest of the world. Connect with us on social media and see what your fellow Husky alums are up to.
It’s going to be a great time—can’t wait to see you there!
