Light Years Away

Each semester Stephen Stifano assigns his COMM 1000 students “1,000 Words,” asking them to encapsulate their UConn experience in a photo worth, well, you know. He ends each class with a video montage of these photos. This spring, about two weeks after the assignment was due, the entire campus shut down due to Covid-19. He posted the montage saying, “Here is a snapshot of what feels like a simpler time — but the time that you should remember, especially you seniors, as your experience at the University of Connecticut.” Watch the video, set to “Light Years” by The National.


  1. Thanks for making my day and bringing back such fond memories of my days at UCONN (as an alum) during these trying times! Beautifully done! #BleedBlue
