Connecticut College: Eight of the Best
Connecticut College - Claremont McKenna College - Colorado College - Grinnell College - Haverford College - Kenyon College - Macalester College - Sarah Lawrence College
Connecticut College is one of eight highly selective, nationally recognized residential colleges in a group known as "Eight of the Best."
Each fall and spring, the Deans of Admission of these "Eight of the Best" colleges invite you and your family to a free reception to be held at select cities in the United States. Each college has something distinctive to offer. As a group, they place great value on student-faculty interaction, small classes, and challenging curricula. These colleges send a high percentage of graduates on to graduate and professional schools, and count among their alumnae/i leaders in virtually every field.
The program includes presentations on admission, financial aid, and each of the eight colleges. There is also the opportunity to ask questions.
Please visit the "Eight of the Best Colleges" website for more information and to register to attend a reception.
