Experience Conn at Spring Open House
March 1-5, 2021

Spring Open House is designed to introduce high school students and their parents to Connecticut College and the college admission process. Normally, you'd be able to attend presentations highlighting distinctive areas of the College, tour the campus, meet with faculty and students and even attend a class!

This year, our Spring Open House will be virtual. You'll get the same great information and meet wonderful members of our community, you just won't be able to see our stunning campus in person ... until you enroll!

Check out the schedule below and make your plans to attend.
