Explore Weekend is a fall program for high school seniors from underrepresented groups and those committed to issues of diversity. Over three days, you’ll get a sneak peek at a challenging liberal arts environment and learn about campus resources for students of color.

Some parts of your college experience will be easy to figure out. Intellectual drive? Lifelong passions? You've got that covered. Building a successful future? It's at the top of your list. To make it happen, you need to find a school that supports and challenges you. That’s where Explore Weekend comes in.

Connecticut College sponsors the Explore Weekend program for high school seniors from all over the country. During that weekend, you and your peers will:

  • Attend Explore Weekend classes and discuss big ideas with your professors
  • Tour the campus
  • Interview for admission
  • Stay overnight with a student host in a residence house
  • Make new friends from across the country
  • Learn the ins and outs of financial aid
  • Meet College deans and professors
  • Discover the wealth of exciting academic and extracurricular activities available
  • Learn about our home, New London, through a community service project 

Here is a sample schedule of the events of a typical Explore Weekend.
