Throughout the semester, University of New Haven students took over the University’s Instagram account to show what it is like to be a student here. As part of the #ToBeACharger series, nearly 20 students created 100 posts about their experiences at the University.

They brought us into their classes, their club meetings, their studios, their residences, their favorite campus hangouts, the dining halls, and onto the athletic fields. And they told us about the friends they made, the passions they discovered as students, and how the University is helping them thrive and prepare to be future leaders.

Check out some of the highlights:
