Student Activities & Organizations

Your social life at Connecticut College combines a vibrant residential experience, stimulating intellectual exchanges outside of the classroom, and just plain fun.

What's happening?

A lot of your social life here at the College will revolve around your residence hall. You and your fellow residents will set house rules together and plan events and social activities. Some of these events seek to further strengthen the bond between members of the College community and bring together students, faculty and staff. There's Camelympics, Festivus, Dessert and Dialogue. . . and more!

Student spaces

The Lambdin Game Room is a great spot to relax with friends and unwind after a busy day or hectic week. A brand new favorite spot to study, meet with friends or just grab a latte is Ruane's Den, a new café located in Harkness House in south campus. Coffee Grounds is a new student-run venue in Katherine Blunt (KB) House offering a cool place to kick back, relax, study and enjoy some great espresso, coffee, hot chocolate and great baked goodies.

Join a club, or start one

No matter what your interest, there's a good chance you'll choose to join one or more than the 80 active clubs and club sports on campus. Or start your own!

Go off campus and explore your surroundings

You'll want to go off-campus now and then, too, to explore all that the surrounding community has to offer. It's easy with the new Camel Van shuttle service, Thursday through Sunday, that takes you to local entertainment and shopping venues. And now there are Zipcar rental cars for short hops or longer trips. You can even lease a bicycle. Learn about the transportation methods you can use.

Meet the CoCoBeaux

A cappella groups abound at Connecticut College. Meet a few of the CoCoBeaux.
