The Genesis Program

Genesis is designed to acclimate first generation and first-year students of color to the campus experience at Connecticut College. Prior to the start of Orientation, Genesis participants will meet their peer mentors and engage in a series of activities and team building exercises. During the program, participants will be introduced to various campus resources that will support their successful transition to Connecticut College. Also, participants will be provided with tools to start them on the path to academic success. Participants that desire a peer mentor will be admitted into a peer mentor program. Parents/guardians and families are welcome to participate in the morning sessions and the Genesis luncheon. Information about area accommodations and viable travel options will be included in the Orientation packet.
