Class of 2022
Millenia Polanco ’22 (ENG) and mom Marsha Polanco ’02 (CLAS) celebrated outside Gampel Pavilion following the School of Engineering Commencement ceremony on Mother’s Day weekend 2022. Husky dad William Polanco ’02 (BUS) was on hand, too. For the first time since 2019, ceremonies took place in UConn’s traditional locations. In Storrs, students in full regalia gathered with classmates in processions to Gampel and the Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts, where they heard their names called and joined the great community of graduates stretching all the way back to 1883. After the last four years, that felt spectacular — and well-earned through a combination of individual effort and collective support, including from all those moms.
