"UConn is a very special place for me and my family; my son went to school there. Over the years, I have been fortunate to know a lot of people that have received a great education from the University of Connecticut. I firmly believe that students who attend UConn leave as much better and well-rounded people who are prepared for the real world by the time they graduate."
