Last night, while driving home from an errand, I noticed that the main building on campus was lighted in blue light. (Usually just a regular white light). It's final four, UConn is in it, and UConn's colors are blue and white. I thought that was a fun idea and hoped it would become a tradition for when UConn teams do well.
While... I spoke with a neighbor today, one who is in the University administration, and he explained that the blue light is to support autism. Apparently an autism advocacy group has asked universities to shine a blue light on this weekend, and it just happens to be the final four.
