CAHNR in the news

newsprintSome CAHNR places made the news recently. The bolded topics are linked to media coverage.

Her Campus. 12-8-16. Stated, “The best place to see Instagram-worthy foliage is obviously from the top of Horsebarn Hill,” in an article about things Huskies did this semester.

UConn Today. 12-15-16. Ran a story about Charles and Augustus Storrs, who gave land and money for agricultural training. This gift helped start what is now called CAHNR and, ultimately, UConn.
