On Friday, Aug. 23, the class of 2023 arrived at UConn to begin an adventure that will shape the rest of their lives. Waiting to greet them was a small army of sophomores, juniors, and seniors known as the Husky Haulers, who helped carry their belongings to their new homes and offered them the friendship and hospitality that characterizes UConn Nation. Pitching in alongside the students were faculty members, staff members, and senior administrators, including President Tom Katsouleas.
At the end of the day, the students all gathered together to celebrate Convocation, the official start of the academic year. But the final ceremony was the next morning, with the official photo of the Class of 2023.
