A Tank Away

Take a break on winning campus in Storrs, Conn.

It’s easy to walk anywhere, the student behind the information desk assured us when we stopped in the visitors center for a map of the flagship Storrs campus of the University of Connecticut. More than 18,000 undergraduate and 6,000 graduate students attend classes here, and they tend to think of their surroundings more as a small town than a sprawling campus. Unless you follow college basketball (where the Huskies dominate), UConn might have slipped below your radar. But there is plenty for visitors to enjoy within the groves (or more accurately, rolling pastures) of academe.
