Welcome to the community

Connecticut College is a wonderful place for living, learning and growing. Our beautiful, historic campus is one of our greatest assets, and it will become a home away from home for your student.

Our faculty and staff are invested in your student’s success. We invite you to learn more about the academic, health and wellness, counseling, and other support services and resources available on campus.

You are a vital partner in your student’s journey through these formative years. Thank you for joining our community and entrusting Connecticut College with your child’s education.

A different kind of education

The world needs creative, adaptive thinkers ready to take on the ever-changing problems that lie ahead. They will need to write and communicate effectively, listen intently, navigate and negotiate difference, and dig deep to get to the “why” of an issue.

Connecticut College will prepare your student to be that kind of leader.

Our new comprehensive, four-year approach to education, Connections, tailors students’ academic experiences around a problem they want to solve and teaches them to build stronger connections among the many aspects of their college experience: the languages they are learning; the disciplines they are studying; the communities they are inhabiting; their work in class and in the world; and ultimately, their lives after college.
