On Friday, August 28th, the Undergraduate Student Government held the largest Freshman Ice Cream social in UConn History. Despite, grey skies and unrelenting rain, thousands of new Huskies came to the Student Union to grab free ice cream and t-shirts. Many students took advantage of the opportunity to learn more about USG and grab lanyards, student rights guides, and other great freebies. The event was planned by Promotions and Recruitment Chair, Brian Ingmanson and many other USG members showed up to greet this year’s freshman while dumping syrup, cherries, and sprinkles onto gallons of ice cream. Packets for the Fall elections that begin on September 21st were also available to be picked up.
The Ice Cream Social was a great first opportunity for many new students to meet new friends and enjoy the sudden rush of independence. If you have some comments on how USG can improve the Ice Cream Social we would love to hear from you. You can post a comment below or email the Communications Director, Samuel Greenberg.
