    With the NFL season recently ending, New England Patriots tight-end, Rob Gronkowski, has found something new to do with his spare time and will be at the University of Connecticut at the end of the month.

    “Gronk” will visit the Jorgensen performing arts venue on the University of Connecticut’s campus on Thursday Feb. 28 at 7 p.m.

    The 23-year-old former University of Arizona student, will be giving a lecture to the UConn students on the importance of work ethic and how to maintain a healthy lifestyle, especially after recently injuring his forearm during a playoffs game this past season, according to the Daily Campus.  He will also be telling stories from his life that many college students may be able to relate too.

    Tickets are $10 for UConn students and $15 for guests.
