Heard Here: UConn 360

UConn 360 is a biweekly podcast series that aims to provide glimpses into the University of Connecticut from every conceivable angle: research, teaching, student life, history, athletics, and whatever else is unique and compelling. This series spotlights some of the best pieces drawn from more than a year of UConn 360’s existence, offering insightful, in-depth, and quirky (in a good way) coverage of Connecticut’s Top 25 public research university.
