Welcome to Our Community

Connecticut College is a wonderful place for living, learning and growing. Our historic campus — named one of the 10 most beautiful campuses in the country — is one of our greatest assets, and we hope it becomes a "home away from home" for your son or daughter. 

Our faculty, staff and students create a diverse and very special community here. They care about each other's well-being and success. As a result, intellectual development, personal growth, and a shared responsibility for the success of the College is fostered across campus.

Parents are vitally important partners in our students’ journeys through these formative years. Thank you for joining our community and entrusting Connecticut College with your child’s education.


The Best of Liberal Arts 

At Connecticut College, your child will learn to write, communicate and solve real-world problems while also developing specialized skills within the major. Students take classes in different disciplines and learn to draw important connections between the sciences, social sciences, humanities and the arts. They develop diverse perspectives through language study and international experiences, and are part of an intellectual community grounded in a tradition of mutual trust and academic collaboration.
