On to bigger ideas. On to better answers.
At the University of Connecticut, we each have the potential to be something great. We're tenacious. We're fierce. We're ready.
Because here, we're Huskies. What we start has the power to go on and on and on. On to bigger ideas. On to better answers. On to what matters most. Be a part of the next generation of Huskies who join together to inspire new possibilities, improve lives, and light the way forward.
Wanjiku Gatheru '20
The first student in UConn history to be named a Rhodes Scholar, and both a Truman Scholar and a Udall Scholar in the same year, Gatheru's forays into public service here have included successfully lobbying for an environmental literacy general education requirement and reducing the number of plastic water bottles on campus as vice president of Undergraduate Student Government.
Kyra Durfee '20
The New Jersey native wanted to attend a larger university with a small-campus feel that had a strong pharmacy program and tons of school spirit. "I like to say UConn checked the most boxes," she says. Getting involved in Tap Club, working in a pharmacology lab, and sharing her story as a Husky Ambassador opened her eyes to further opportunities.
Shane Young '21
Young is a practice player with the Women's Basketball Team, a First Year Experience mentor, and a member of UConn Consulting Group, but still managed to take an Alternative Spring Break service trip to Detroit and be named a Babbidge Scholar for earning a 4.0 GPA two consecutive semesters.
