A Piece of UConn History/Photo: Ice Skating - 1960s

Skating at the new ice rink in the mid-1960s

Picture From The Past - Students and area children skate in the newly opened UConn Ice Rink in 1965. The rink was home to the ice hockey team. Only a boat-shaped roof protected skaters from the elements, and many fans (and former hockey team members) can remember blustery cold winds blowing through the structure. The old ice rink was demolished to make way for the Ice Arena that opened on the same site in 1998. [University Archives]
