Additional safety measures will be in effect for Spring Weekend to keep events contained to programming for UConn Students.

“Right around 2011, there was an effort that was really a university effort to make the weekend about university type of events and not just non-sanction events,” UCPD Deputy Police Chief Andrew Fournier said.

When a UConn junior, Jafar Karzoun, died after being punched in an altercation with Edi Rapo in 2010, the university changed the way Spring Weekend is run.
