#UConn Nation: Come Home to Storrs
There are big things in store for Huskies Forever Weekend that you won’t want to miss. The weekend is our chance to thank you, #UConnNation, for being a part of our family—and to celebrate the amazing friendships, opportunities, and memories that are created during our time on campus.
Also, it’s going to be a ton of fun. Seriously. It’ll be a blast.
Here are just a few events we’ve got planned:
A Storrs Center Stroll, where you can explore all the new businesses in the area. They’ll be offering tastings, samples, giveaways, and live performances.
The Homecoming Parade & Carnival. The parade, which will feature floats from student groups and the UConn Marching Band, will end at South Campus, where we’ll have rides, food trucks, games, and a whole lot more.
The Husky Brews Beer & Wine Tasting, which will feature wine, beer, and more from local vineyards and breweries, many of which are owned and operated by UConn alumni. (You can learn about one of these breweries in this newsletter.)
We’ve also got opportunities for lifelong learning, a cultural center progressive dessert open house, a Ted’s trivia night, and reunions for just about everyone—from the Class of 1965 to ResLife RAs and CAs. If you’re going, be sure to check in using the new UConn Alumni Community App. It’s free for all alumni. Not only will you see who else is attending Huskies Forever Weekend—or any of our events—but you can get UConn news, customized just for you, and make key career connections using the app’s ClassRing feature.
I can’t wait to see you all there.
P.S. Are you already registered? Tell other Huskies! The hashtag for the weekend is #HuskiesForeverWknd. We will be sharing your pictures, stories, and quotes all weekend. Let’s show the world that UConn alumni are a strong, spirited pack.
