To give you a sense of variety, we have everything from the a cappella singing groups to Sprout!, the organic garden group. Student government, the office of Community Partnerships (which serves the greater New London area) and the other 100+ groups are always looking for people to get involved. Have a look at the Student Clubs and Organizations section to get an idea.
About 75 percent of our students are involved in competitive sports, taking part in either intramural, club or varsity athletics.
Favorite campus location: The arboretum. It's great to explore and walk around. Our students are: Involved, passionate, and curious. Outside of the classroom we offer students: Infinite opportunities to not only dive into their passions, but to explore and develop new areas of interests. Favorite activity or place in Southeastern Connecticut: Bluff Point State Park in Groton, Conn. I enjoy hiking there.
Favorite activity or place in Southeastern Connecticut: As a history enthusiast, I recommend checking out some of the historical spots in greater New London. The school house of Connecticut’s state hero, Nathan Hale, is in downtown New London. Fort Griswold, just across the Thames River from campus, was used by the patriots during the American Revolution.
Our students are: Engaged. One of the things I like most about the community is that students are involved in every aspect of Conn. You will have the opportunity to shape your community in unique and interesting ways. A Conn education prepares students for their futures by: Integrating academics with career and professional development. Research, internships, and your academic experience will come together to help you formulate a plan for your future, along with excellent advising, of course.
Favorite campus tradition or pastime: Camelympics! It brings the campus together at the beginning of the academic year to participate in a wide variety of events and meet others on campus A Conn education prepares students for their futures by: Initially providing resources to help plan for the future, and then the skills and grit needed to succeed. Favorite campus location: My favorite campus location is Tempel Green. When all the students are together outside, either watching a soccer game or relaxing on a blanket, there is such a strong feeling of community. The view is not bad either! Fun fact about me: I have camped and hiked my way through the 50 States with my family.

When we arrived back in the French Quarter, we immediately realized that there was a big event happening on account of the many people parading around the streets in red dresses. Coincidentally, our visit happened to be on the same day as the Red Dress Run. The Red Dress Run, according to New Orleans Online, is organized by a group that is a "self-proclaimed drinking club with a running problem." It was definitely a hilarious sight to see hundreds of tipsy men and women running around in red dresses through the streets of New Orleans for charity. This event was awesome to see and really brought the New Orleans energy that I had missed our first day exploring the city. We danced through the streets to songs blasting from the huge portable speakers of runners. Our soundtrack of the day consisted of songs like "Pour Some Sugar on Me" by Def Leppard and "It's Raining Men" by The Weather Girls. We wove our way through the crowd back to Marie Laveau's House of Voodoo for Mark to buy a box of Tarot Cards, which he decided was worth it (he says he's going to use them at Connecticut College all of the time) and I bought a sticker for my fridge at school.
