Although the University of Connecticut hopes that the $45 million needed for the new ice rink will ultimately be profitable, the money does not help current student needs, Samuel Surowitz, Graduate Student Trustee, said.

Surowitz said he voted against the building of the rink because the money the university is spending on it could be spent in other ways, such as increasing student parking.
