From now through May, we’re 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.


Spring Break is almost here! Whether you’re traveling to an exotic locale, headed out for ‪#‎UConnAltBreaks, grabbing some work/internship hours, or just recharging at home, show us how you make the most of your Spring Break for our March ‪#‎UConnBucketList challenge. Post a photo or video via #UConnBucketList – and complete all 10 Bucket List items for a chance to win our grand prize, which includes a photo shoot with Jonathan XIV. See below for the first seven Bucket List items that we’ve revealed this year.




We’ve seen a lot less snow than most years, but we’re ready and waiting with our shovels, snow gear – and sleds! Keep your eye out for the next snowfall and bundle up for a ride down Horsebarn Hill to cross February’s #UConnBucketList challenge off your list. Don’t forget to post a photo or video of your adventure.




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.
