Alumni Testimonials

If there is one thing you realize almost immediately about HuskyTHON, it is that enthusiasm and positivity are contagious. I first participated as a freshman in 2008, and I was hooked. I was nervous about standing on my feet for 18 hours the first time, but seeing the excitement of the Kids and Families we danced for at the actual event inspired me to hang in during the tough hours in the early morning.

If there is one aspect of my undergraduate career that makes me smile every time I reminisce, it is HuskyTHON. As a student currently pursuing a career in medicine, I have seen first-hand how important donations like ours are to non-profit hospitals like Connecticut Children’s Medical Center. I recently applied to volunteer there and during the orientation, we were informed that the hospital relies on donations to continue their mission.

HuskyTHON was a very meaningful and integral part of my undergrad experience at UConn. When I graduated in 2014, I knew I wanted to help out in any way I could. At the time, I felt like that was limited to supporting my friends by donating. When the Alumni Board formed in 2016, I saw it as an opportunity to directly work with fellow alumni who shared many of the same experiences with HuskyTHON that I loved so much, and a tangible way to contribute to the event.
