“The University decided on a different color, it’s going to be blue, the school color, as opposed to the black that we’ve had in the past,” Leonard Oser, the manager of the UConn Bookstore, said.

Oser said that the decision was made on the grounds of the aesthetic appeal of the blue gowns.

“It’s a little richer-looking fabric, it’s a little softer and it’s nice quality,” Oser said, “It’s about the same cost so they decided to go with the blue.”
