Connecticut College recently honored three members of the community with the 2015 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Service Awards, conferred each year on those who exemplify and uphold the legacy of Dr. King's work.
A total of 340 rising seniors – three-quarters of the Class of 2015 – interned all over the world this summer through Connecticut College's distinctive career and professional development program.
Of those completing internships, 87 percent are taking advantage of the College's offer of up to $3,000 for a career-related internship or research experience between their junior and senior years; the rest of the students are being paid in excess of $3,000 by their employers. See where our students worked over the summer.
The College's four-year program combines one-on-one counseling and practical workshops with assistance planning coursework and co-curricular activities to help students create an integrated experience that bridges naturally to a successful career.
