“I, Husky, Take Thee, Type W…”

Today, Webster Bank and UConn announced a union between these two venerable Connecticut institutions, making Webster the “Official Bank of UConn.”

Sounds great, you might be thinking, but what exactly does that mean?

Simply put, it means that you’ll soon see us sponsoring a slew of programs and events for UConn athletics and alumni. For starters, we’ll be sponsoring Homecoming and Alumni Weekend, supporting UConn’s youth and community relations programs, and supporting the new UConn Basketball Development Center that will be built on the current Memorial Stadium site in Storrs, Conn.

It also means that we will develop special, UConn and UConn Huskies branded banking products for the university’s 200,000 alumni, 28,000 students and countless fans. There’ll be a lot more to announce as the partnership grows, so keep checking back here on the Bank Roll for updates.

Are you a UConn student, alumnus or fan? What banking products or services would you like to see us develop?
