Mohegan Sun firming up plans for ‘bubbleville,’ to host more than 35 college basketball teams, including UConn men and women

The Mohegan Sun is finalizing details that will bring as many as 40 college basketball teams into its “bubble” environment for nonconference games between Nov. 25 and Dec 5.

The UConn men and women, both of whom are committed to playing in multi-team events that have been scheduled or moved to Mohegan Sun, will be part of the plan, conceived as a way to save nonconference games amid the pandemic .

The Naismith Hall of Fame and the Gazelle Group, which run several of the early season tournaments, were the drivers of the nonconference bubble concept, which has been in the works for months.

“It’s an enormous undertaking,” said Greg Procino, VP of basketball operations for the Hall of Fame. “and it’s changing every day, but we have a lot of firm pieces. We expect 35-plus teams to play about 40 games.”

Student Parent Voices Are Critical To Colleges’ Civic Engagement Plans

Connection. Belonging. A sense of community. These are critical to students feeling like they are a part of their college community. Yet, far too many parenting college students feel alone on their campuses. Generation Hope’s national student parent survey found that 40% of student parents felt isolated at their institutions. 

We know that nationally one in five college students is parenting, but the data is harder to come by at the institutional level because most schools do not track the parenting status of their students. This means they do not know how many student parents are on their campus, and the needs and unique experiences of these students are likely to be overlooked. As a respondent to Generation Hope’s survey said: “I feel like there is no one like me walking around campus.”

Biden’s plans for education

Biden is advocating to make public colleges and universities tuition-free for students with family incomes under $125,000. He links this proposal to the 2017 College for All Act, legislation introduced by Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington state.

Biden also wants to extend the 2017 proposal to include private historically Black colleges and universities and minority-serving institutions. The plan would allocate $70 billion toward those institutions to advance and expand facilities, educational and technological infrastructure and financial accessibility.

He also pledges to make community
