January brings the promise of a new year, a new semester, and the latest #UConnBucketList item.

From now through May, we’ll be sharing our #UConnBucketList, with one quintessential UConn activity to complete every month. On the first of every month, check UConn’s Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook for another bucket list item. (Don’t worry. We’ll repost throughout the month in case you miss it.) Then post pictures or videos of yourself completing each task using #UConnBucketList.

Do all 10 by the end of the year and you could win a prize pack including a photo shoot with Jonathan XIV.


The promise of a new year and a new semester – and some frigid New England days. It’s the perfect time to settle into your favorite study spot when you return from winter break, and get your new classes off to a great start. Show us your favorite study spot for January’s #UConnBucketList item. Post a photo or video to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter using the hashtag.




Sure, it ends before 12 and there’s more to it than omelets – but Midnight Breakfast is still many Huskies’ favorite way to take a break before finals begin. Cross off December’s #UConnBucketList item by attending this annual event at the Student Union, Dec. 13 from 9:30-11:30 p.m. and documenting it with a photo or short video. Bonus points for winning this year’s ugly sweater contest!




We know your passion for the @UConnHuskies runs deep. To check off November’s #UConnBucketList item, show us just how much Huskies pride you have. Using #UConnBucketList, post photos and videos of your game day get-up, Fido doing his best @JonathanXIV impression, your kids’ faces painted blue and white – all the ways you #BleedBlue.




October is here. For some, it’s all about picking apples and raking leaves. But at UConn, it’s the perfect time to enjoy our beautiful campus. Take some time to swing beneath the tree at Mirror Lake and post a photo or video of yourself checking #3 off the ‪#‎UConnBucketList‬.




Need a little luck as you start the fall semester? Cross off #2 on the #UConnBucketList: Rub the nose of the Jonathan statue, our very own good luck charm and capture it with a photo or video.





There’s no better way to beat the summer heat than a scoop from the #UConnDairyBar. Head on over to the Dairy Bar and snap a picture or capture video of your visit, then share it via #UConnBucketList.
