ON TO BIGGER THINGS,
When was the last time you felt the spirit of a Husky? Our mascot, Jonathan, is our good luck charm. He’s the inspiration behind our curious nature, and the star of our most memorable traditions.
Five Campuses, One UConn
Find the starting point for your future and drive toward what’s next.

At UConn Hartford, pave a new path in urban studies and advocacy. Or feel the community vibe at UConn Waterbury, where a campus garden grows food for locals in need.
One Husky. Unlimited possibilities.
Ian Sauco, a music and composition major, received a UConn SURF grant to further hone his saxophone technique and performance, with the guidance of faculty mentor Greg Case in the School of Fine Arts.
Music is the thing that gives people the most joy. This is how we have expressed ourselves throughout history.

Belong here. Become anything.
Felipe Sanches, a first-generation student from Greenwich, Connecticut, chose to become a Husky after finding a sense of home at UConn’s Puerto Rican/Latin American Cultural Center. Now he’s a double major in political science and Latino studies, and he serves as floor mentor within his Learning Community, where he encourages other students to speak up for what they need.
“My advice for an incoming student is to not be afraid to ask for help.” — Felipe Sanches
Through a UConn SURF grant, Hanna Englander, a physiology and neurobiology major, is working alongside Wendy Mok, assistant professor of molecular biology and biophysics, to investigate how antibiotic-resistant bacteria contribute to infection relapses.
Huskies stay hungry.
We’ve got spirit for good reason. With our 24 NCAA Division I athletic programs and UConn’s championship legacy, you’ll have no problem finding a reason to cheer.
We don’t have to apologize for wanting to be great.

Activist. Researcher. Rhodes Scholar.
Wanjiku (Wawa) Gatheru, an environmental studies major with minors in global studies and urban and community studies, is UConn’s first Rhodes Scholar. As the daughter of Kenyan immigrants, Wawa comes from a long line of farmers and has a deep understanding of the impacts of climate change. Drawing on her passion, and bolstered by support from UConn’s undergraduate research department, Wawa became the first person in Connecticut to apply for a grant to research food insecurity — a grant that she was awarded. Now, she’s heading to the University of Oxford, where she’ll play a pivotal role in defining what our world will look like 100 years from now.

On, with inspired energy.
Michael Bradford, head of the dramatic arts department in the School of Fine Arts, is inspiring creative excellence and career development in his students. He’s also dedicated to diversifying the voices of writers and directors who engage with the department.
Diversity might have been a simple thing to say, but it’s not a simple thing to do. We’re working hard on both those fronts to move the needle.

Come here to ask the big questions.
Major support, even if you haven’t decided.
UConn’s Academic Center for Exploratory Students, called ACES, offers academic guidance and support for those who are still deciding on a path, those who apply to certain majors with specific requirements, and those who declare a pre-professional major.
Highly motivated leaders and creators.
In UConn’s Honors Program, your endless potential meets endless opportunities. As part of this vibrant community of scholars, you’ll benefit from an enriched undergraduate experience with three focus areas: exploration, creativity, and leadership.
Onward to a greater global understanding.
If you could study anywhere in the world, where would you go? This question isn’t hypothetical when you choose UConn, because we offer more than 135 study abroad experiences, including study, internship, research, and service-learning opportunities. Don’t limit curiosity by geography.
Student activities, reimagined.
