Family Sciences Undergraduate Council (FSUC)


The Family Sciences Undergraduate Council is a student organization at UConn for any students majoring, minoring or interested in the HDFS field of study at the Storrs or any regional campus. Our goal as an organization is to create a sense of community within the field of HDFS by providing students with opportunities to attend events related to their major, network with fellow students and learn more about their major as a whole.

I enjoy taking care of plants, reading, playing video games and hanging out with my friends around campus. I also run our social media — so feel free to follow and reach out to @uconnfsuc on Instagram!
