1. Football Game Tailgate
Every UConn student has or should experience the famous Student Tailgate at a UConn Football game. Students gather together prior to the game to dance to loud, pumping music, get bumped into and ground against in close quarters, and the best of all having beer raining down on you from students flinging cans. It's an experience everyone should be apart of at least once in their career as a Husky and an experience most Upperclassmen can relate to.
What is life like at UConn without construction? Literally, no one knows. Construction has taken over the UConn expanding campus, the most recent construction being the Recreation Center across from the Bookstore. Will anyone ever experience UConn without construction? The world may never know.
3. UConn Tshirts
Ever try showing your Husky spirit in public? Such as wearing a T-shirt to the grocery store or, in my case, on an airplane. Even in another country, those around me also traveling started chanting the UConn Sports chant from spotting my T-Shirt. Everyone knows the UConn Huskies and there is no escaping being a Husky, no matter where you are.
4. The Wind
Ever want to take a nice walk on a sunny day? Almost impossible! Everyone knows the struggle of walking uphill against the winds of UConn. Everyone knows the struggle of fighting the extreme wind of Storrs. Best way to fight the wind? Stay in bed!
5. Bus Lines
Feeling lazy? Just hop on one of the 6 different bus lines around campus! Enjoy standing squished together with 30 other students behind that yellow line. Forget about getting a seat on cold or rainy days, standing is what's in store for you!
6. The Diary Bar
Everyone has heard of the "Freshman 15", where you gain 15 pounds your first year as a college student. While most students fall into this stereotype through alcohol, UConn students fall straight into the "Freshman 15" from the Dairy Bar.
Running into celebrity basketball players from the Women's and Men's team is always extremely exciting. Being able to meet a fellow student who is known nation wide. However, when given a choice, students would rather meet Johnathon the Husky over a basketball player on any given day.
