Students admitted to the Class of 2026 are invited to Camel Days!
April 18 and April 25, 2022
Camel Days are a great way to get better acquainted with the College and with fellow Camels.
Admitted students and their families get the opportunity to tour the campus; meet with students, faculty and staff who will offer an insider’s perspective into what makes Connecticut College special; browse our academic fair; and learn more about the arts, athletics, honors studies and sustainability on campus. (If it's safe to do so, our admitted students can sit in on a class and enjoy lunch with other admitted students.)
Camel Days will be held on two consecutive Mondays in 2022: April 18 and April 25.
Some sample Camel Day events include:
The First-Year Experience
The dean of first-year students and assistant dean of student engagement and new programs discuss how Conn welcomes new students and provides various forms of support during their first year. Current students also speak about their experiences and ways to get involved on campus.
Commitment to Sustainability
Conn has a long history of environmentalism and social justice on which we’ve built extensive sustainability initiatives. The assistant director of sustainability, faculty and students share more about these initiatives and ask how you can participate in and outside the classroom.
Pre-Business and the Liberal Arts
Find out how our unique approach to the liberal arts, exemplary career services and team advising system serve as a springboard to your career in business or finance. Our pre-business advisers have answers to all your questions.

Global Study and Engagement
Did you know we have a bustling hub for global learning on campus, where students enhance their global education using technology and other innovative resources? It’s called the Walter Commons, and the staff will be on hand to answer your questions about study-away experiences, hands-on learning opportunities, and our many programs for students with an interest in global issues.

The Gund Dialogue Project
