UHart Legacy Families

What is a Legacy?

Legacies are graduates who have had a relative who also graduated from the University. The relative can be a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, sibling, cousin, or the like. Legacies hold a special piece in University history—they make the University of Hartford a family tradition!

How are Legacy Connections Celebrated?

  • Hawktober Weekend Legacy Event:
  • Each fall we recognize and celebrate with our current students and their alum family member at a special legacy family event during Hawktober Reunion and Family Weekend.
  • Commencement Medals:
    Graduates who are members of a Legacy family are provided with a special medal to wear at Commencement.

While we try to keep up to date on legacy families, sometimes our information is out of date! If you a part of a legacy family, please complete this form to let us know so we can celebrate your special University of Hartford connection.

We love seeing photos of legacy families! At your next gathering, take a photo with your UHart gear on and send us a picture or use the hashtag #UHart4Life when posting on social media!
