Coming Soon: Updates to LaMoy Field

Exciting renovations are slated to commence on our LaMoy Athletic Field in May. This field, built in 2011, is set to undergo a transformation with the replacement of its artificial turf. This project will also see the current clay infield of the softball diamond swapped out for an all-turf surface, promising enhanced durability and aesthetics. 

The importance of our Athletic Field cannot be overstated. It’s the arena for our Division-II Men’s and Women’s Soccer, Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse teams, and Women’s softball, and doubling as the practice facility for our Football team, which plays its home games in  Waterbury’s Municipal Stadium.

Moreover, LaMoy has been the proud host of numerous CACC soccer championships, marking memorable moments for our athletics teams. Notably, for the first time, the University hosted a first round 2023 Men’s NCAA Division II soccer game. 

Construction will be finished in early August, just in time for when our student athletes return to campus. 

All Faculty, Associates, and Students are Invited to Attend!

The inaugural Honors Program Symposium is a celebration and exploration of the academic excellence displayed by main campus Honors Program students. Guests are invited to this drop-in event to engage with the student presenters and learn more about the depth and breadth of the honors curriculum.

Tips to Combat Test Anxiety

Final Exams for the Spring 2024 semester are fast approaching.  Some nervousness before an exam is normal and can even help you focus and keep your mind sharp. On the other end of the spectrum is test anxiety – feelings of worry, panic, and self-doubt that can interfere with your ability to perform well on tests and exams. You don’t have to dread every exam. Here are some strategies to help reduce your test anxiety:

  • Study early and in similar places. Rather than cram for a test and pull an all-nighter, study a little bit over time. It’s also helpful to try studying in similar places to where you will take your test. The number one cause of test anxiety is a lack of preparation, which you can eliminate from the mix!
  • Establish a consistent pre-test routine. Decide what works for you and follow the same steps before every exam. A pre-test routine will help reduce your stress levels and leave you feeling more prepared.
  • Learn relaxation techniques. Before you begin your exam, practice relaxation techniques that will help you keep calm and confident. Take three deep breaths, relax your muscles, or close your eyes and imagine a positive outcome.
  • Don’t forget to eat and hydrate.  Fuel your brain with a healthy meal and plenty of water. Avoid sugary drinks and snacks and too many caffeinated beverages, as these can be detrimental to your performance.

Celebrating Planet Earth

On Monday, April 22, 2024, the School of Arts & Sciences hosted Earth Day Extravaganza.  This was an opportunity for all members of the University community to come together to appreciate and learn about Earth, as well as what we can do to protect this planet we call home.  First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day was established to educate citizens about how everyday practices can harm Earth and set the stage to advocate for the planet’s protection.  You can learn more about this annual event, and how you can better the planet, by visiting
