"I feel blessed to have maintained so many strong relationships from my UHart experience.... Staying connected to UHart allows me the opportunity to stay in touch with these friends and classmates as the years go by. By giving back to UHart, it provides me with a way to allow a future student to share in the same positive experience that I had."
JOEY BATTAGLIA '04
"When I setted in Hartford after graduating, I knew immediately it was a city on the 'rise.' ... Once I created a name for myself and my work, I found it necessary to give back to the many people and followers that had supported me in my rise. Being an educator as well as a performer, helping the youth in addition to teaching them was an easy decision."
CAROLYN REIBLING BLIGH '87
"Thanks goes to the UHart community (students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends). They make it easy to be a part of the community and to give back and help. I've been engaged in many different roles over the years, and now am so honored to serve as the Alumni President. We are one big family that supports and helps each other. #UHart4Life."
