I am not sure how to frame this question in polling form.

Though it seems everybody posting is a UConn fan (to my knowledge) except for a few here and there like an PC fan, some logos say the poster is a graduate from some other school like one with HCC and some others.

So I would like to know the answer in polling form, since maybe a fair percentage may have gone somewhere else, but still follow and root for UConn.

Thanks for help with this one.

If someone knows how and can post it, fine. If you can explain how, that would be great.

Kent State University & Western Connecticut State University for undergrad. WestConn for master's. Southern CT for 6th year.

Or second graduate from UConn in 2005 as did his wife.

I've never stepped foot in Connecticut but I bleed UConn blue none the less. UConn Men's Basketball and Chelsea Football Club are my favorites things in this world. I was 10 years old when we won it all and 2004 and have been hooked ever since. Chelsea ended up having an amazing season with a very young team and new pieces all over the roster(Champions of Europe). I have a sneaky feeling UConn is going to go on a similar run next season. Need to be a top 2 defensive team in the Big East though.

If we're bringing family into this. My brother graduated in 66, my sister dropped out after one semester in 72. My cousin Vic graduated in 1960, his brother Joe graduated a few years after and taught in the UConn Chemistry Dept later in life. My father-in-law a graduated from pharmacy in 59. My mother-in-law dropped out after a couple of years in 56.

Why? Just curious.
My guess is the allure of a private school with a higher price tag and nicer amenities. I don't get it, but I have seen it enough that I know it happens.

I'll never forget deposing a woman who was a plaintiff in an employment discrimination case several years ago and asking her to describe the ways in which she claimed to be damaged from having lost her job. The first and most important damage she identified was having to pull her daughter out of Sacred Heart University and send her to UConn instead, and she started to cry while telling me this. We took a break so she could compose herself and I walked out of the room and asked my associate to confirm that she just said what she said, because I thought I was in some bizarro world.
