Public meeting on seeding the landfill scheduled for today
The regrading plan is one of several activities the University is required to undertake at the landfill. Regrading and seeding the landfill is expected to promote the runoff of clean water, reduce the gerenation of leachate, and prevent erosion of the landfill. After the regrading, the University will carry out a thorough hydrogeologic investigation and reevaluate final landfill closure taking into account the study's findings. The University and DEP will seek further public participation on the hydrogeologic study and final closure plans.
Athletic communications recognized for excellence
UConn received seven awards, the most of any school in District I, a region that includes seven states. Most contests were divided into three divisions. As an NCAA Division I school, UConn was included in Division A. In football, there was a separate contest for NCAA I-AA schools.
The Connecticut football brochure, produced by Tim Tolokan, associate director of athletics/communications, and Kyle Muncy, assistant director of athletic communications, was selected as second in the nation in Division I-AA. Tolokan also teamed with Jodi Hoatson, assistant director of athletic communications, to produce a women's basketball brochure that was named the best in District I and sixth in the nation in Division A. Muncy and Moises Rodriguez, former assistant director of athletic communications, earned Best in District I honors for Division A for their baseball brochure. In addition, the UConn Athletic Communications office received a second in the nation honor for its baseball game program and Best in the District awards for both its men's and women's basketball posters.
The awards were presented at the organization's annual convention in Spokane, Wash., in July.
