Admitted to the Class of 2025?

You're invited to Camel Days!
April 12-16 and April 26-30

Camel Days are a great way to get better acquainted with the College and with your fellow Camels.

In a typical year, Camel Days gives you and your family 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; attend classes; enjoy lunch with other admitted students; browse our academic fair; and learn more about the arts, athletics, honors studies and sustainability on campus.

As you know, this is far from a typical year! Camel Days will be virtual in 2021, and they'll comprise two identical weeks of programming so you can attend your choice of sessions on the days that are more convenient for you. The schedule is below so you can begin to plan your participation. You received an email on Sunday, March 21, that included a link to register for Camel Days. If you no longer have the link, email us at admission@conncoll.edu.
