In the 1940s, it wasn’t common for women to go to college, but thanks to an anonymous donor, Louise Petersen Lostocco '45 was able to attend Hillyer College—one of three schools that joined together in 1957 to form the University of Hartford. Not only was Louise able to make amazing memories during her time at Hillyer, but she created a legacy and passed her love of UHart on to her children and grandchildren.
The relationships fostered during one’s college years can have a tremendous impact on students’ lives—David Miller '99 knows this firsthand. “Network as much as you possibly can, talk to everybody, and get along with everybody—there's no reason to not get along with everyone. Put yourself out there and don't live in a bubble,” Miller advises.
“Finding equitable solutions where everyone can feel validated, seen, supported, and heard” is what “good trouble” means to me.
