STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ University of Connecticut and state police say this year’s Spring Weekend celebration at the school was relatively quiet, but seven people were arrested and about 1,200 traffic tickets were issued.

Police say there was no rioting or drunken crowds like there had been in past editions of the four-day span of festivities on and around the Storrs campus.

UConn officials have imposed strict measures over the past several years.

UConn police arrested seven people Thursday to Sunday on charges ranging from drunken driving to buying alcohol for minors to setting a couch on fire at an off-campus apartment complex. No injuries were reported.

State police say about 1,200 tickets were handed out around town for violations ranging from using hand-held cellphones while driving to failing to wear seat belts.
