Class of 1972 Freshman Orientation Handbook

1968 Avery Point Student Orientation Cover

We have unearthed from our records the orientation handbook from one of the very first cohorts at UConn Avery Point, 1968’s incoming Freshmen–aka, the class of ’72.The handbook is a great link to the past, offering information about the University’s policies and procedures on everything from the dress code and how to access cancellations, to financial aid, student organizations, even the campus BOWLING ALLEY(??). It’s a really interesting glimpse into the past.

Take a look!
