‘Light It Up Blue’ Puts Spotlight On Autism Awareness

Each year on April 2, Autism Speaks celebrates World Autism Awareness Day by 'lighting it up blue' in an effort to increase awareness about autism.  Joining other landmarks throughout the world, including the Empire State Building in New York City, UConn's Wilbur Cross Building was bathed in blue light in observation of the event.
