Episode 6: All-Commencement Spectacular!

It’s time to commence! This year, something like 9,000 degrees will be awarded by UConn, including roughly 6,000 undergraduate degrees. As the Class of 2018 sets off to take their place among the Huskies Forever of the world, we talk with a group of seniors about what they love about UConn, what they’ll always remember, and how their time here changed them. We also dispense an absurd number of commencement factoids! Pictured here is the class of 1890. Did you know UConn graduates didn’t start wearing caps and gowns until 1907? And! We found video of long-ago grads signing The Book of Knowledge! Folks, there’s plenty more where that came from! Take a listen.
