I am creating this petition with the high hope of possibly enacting some change within our university community. The hightened prescence of police and their increasingly unnecessary conduct has become painfully obvious over the past few years. UConn has done a great job in ascending the ranks to become one of the top public universities in the nation with the help of programs such as UConn 2000 & 21st Century UConn.

Just because our school is more prominent nationally does not mean that the students should be bullied every weekend at virtually every social gathering by the boys in blue. As students are all painfully aware Storrs offers no nightlife whatsoever but up until recently we were able as students to go out, have a good time, meet new people and maybe have a few drinks. It
