Grief Resources for Students

Student Counseling Services staff is available for support in their Warnshuis office Monday through Friday. In addition, students can contact any of the College chaplains, staff members in the Office of the Dean of Students, or their class deans:

Students who feel the need to postpone scheduled exams should contact the Office of the Dean of the College – at 860-439-2050 or 860-439-2053 or doc@conncoll.edu – and work with their class deans to make alternative arrangements.
