Huskies Away From Home
Huskies Away from Home was established in fall of 2005 to help incoming out-of-state students make connections with upperclassmen from out-of-state and from the state of Connecticut. The main focus of Huskies Away from Home is to help new out-of-staters become acclimated to UConn and the community of Storrs by creating a supportive social network to help students feel more at home. Over 1,300 students have participated in the program since its first full year in 2006-2007.
