The University of Saint Joseph, located in West Hartford, held its annual gala on June 7.


More than 350 people gathered at the Connecticut Convention Center on June 7 for the University of Saint Joseph’s (USJ) Annual Gala, “Imagine … The Sky’s The Limit.”

This year’s event marked the public announcement of USJ’s Capital Campaign, “Vision & Values,” which will support student/faculty research, student scholarships and USJ’s private special education school, the Gengras Center School.
