Loved to Listen

A great Podcast for UConn Alumni, current students or anyone interested in what different departments at a large college campus have to offer. As a biology major at UConn it was so refreshing to learn about what professors in a wide variety of departments do at UConn. A great podcast for those who love to learn and are curious about what others do in the world around them.
