Skating Rink

Students and local residents skating at UConn’s outdoor ice rink in the spring of 1976 —11 years after it opened. The rink, with seating for almost 500 people on its metal bleachers, was covered by an arched, wooden roof and was used by the men’s hockey team and local youth hockey organizations. It was eventually torn down to make way for the indoor arena that opened in 1998. —Emma Casagrande ’18 (CLAS)
