Fall Semester Kick-Off: 81 Things, Scavenger Hunt, and Care Packages

We’re back for another great year at UConn!

Over the summer, we updated our 81 Things to Do Before You Graduate list. Be sure to check out the 2017-2018 edition, available as a poster at SAA-sponsored events or as a download right here on this website. If you already have a bucket list from a previous year, you may want to compare lists to see what’s new.

We’re excited to welcome the Class of 2021! Stop by Fairfield Way after Convocation on Friday, Aug. 25. to sign your class’s official banner.

Afraid of getting lost on your first day of classes? Want to learn more about our beautiful campus and its history? Stop by our annual Husky WOW Traditions Scavenger Hunt & Food Fest on Saturday, Aug. 26 from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. Make your way around UConn and learn fun facts behind many of our famous Husky landmarks for a chance to win prizes.  The event will start and finish at the Alumni Center, where there will also be a celebration with free food and giveaways! All class years are welcome to attend.

On Monday, Aug. 28, Welcome care package distribution will begin at the Alumni Center. If you think you might receive a care package from home, check your phone and email for a pickup alert.
