Past logos, letterhead and mascots are represented on pins, buttons, patches, clothing, documents and other materials. Check out the Husky Hoops game or work on the UConn football puzzle. A film series of recently digitized historic film is to be scheduled for lunch time viewing on selected Fridays throughout the summer (schedule to be announced soon).
