“Students Today, Huskies Forever”

April 7, 2015

I know that I’ll never forget the one and only basketball game I attended this season – it was unforgettable; it was wonderful; it was the moment that I not only met, but was licked by Jonathan the Husky. I should be more distraught that we lost the game in the last few seconds, but honestly, meeting our mascot is one of those rare experiences that everyone wants to desperately check off their list before they graduate. Being in a…

Husky Love

March 7, 2015

There’s all types of love in the world but there’s nothing better than puppy love. Especially when you’re kissed by the University of Connecticut’s mascot Jonathan the Husky. Only a little over a year old, the adorable black and white pup has captured our hearts while instilling fear in both snowmen and our enemies. As Jonathan the Husky is still fairly young, he’s slowly being acclimated to large crowds and can’t always be found at every sports event. It was almost a…

Of course, we could always go to the bar next door instead, but as we used to race to Panera for cinnamon crunch bagels and hazelnut cream cheese before band practice, it’s without question that we wouldn’t go anywhere else. Chad, the Panera employee that regularly served and flirted us, could count on us being there by 2:15 every Tuesday and Thursday, provided we didn’t get stuck…

Wooden Personalized Beer Carrier

Come Christmas, Father’s Day, or birthdays, I find that the hardest people to shop for are the men in my life. It always seems like guys already have everything they want (with the exception of an even bigger and better TV), or are just more comfortable living without it. Honestly, unlike girls who typically want things, the best gifts for guys are burgers and beer. As a six pack of beer is somewhat difficult to wrap, and the clanking of…
