Harrison’s Kickoff Remarks Carried by AP, Meiser on WDRC Radio, Coleman in the Hartford Business Journal, and More
Randy Morris, a sophomore at the University who is known as “Green Man,” was the subject of the feature photograph on page one of the “CT Now” section of the Wednesday, Sept. 8, edition of the Hartford Courant. Morris created the Green Man persona last year when he wore a green, full body suit nearly all the time. This year, he wears the suit every other day. Why? “Green’s my favorite color since I’ve been a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan when I was little,” he explains. To see the photo, which shows the Green Man walking across Alumni Plaza, click here.
