Be a Part of Community Day
Organizers of the university's fourth annual Community Day are looking for faculty, staff, and students who are interested in participating in this year’s event, which is scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 8, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Community Day began in 2003 as a way to increase awareness of the rich array of programs, activities, and resources that the university offers to the Greater Hartford community. In the past, attractions have included performances, book signings, and displays of student projects, such as the “concrete canoe” built by students in the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture.
An estimated 1,800 guests visited campus for last year’s Community Day, and enjoyed free family events, attractions, and amusements. Attendees represented 37 different towns, with some coming from as far away as East Lyme, Conn., and Florence, Mass.
This is a great opportunity to share some of the exciting things that are happening at the university with our neighbors, many of whom have never been to our campus. If you would like to be part of this day, and if you have an idea that will appeal to a family-oriented audience, please contact Jonathan Easterbrook, Office of Communication, at 860.768.5096, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
