The Connecticut College atmosphere is one that fosters student growth, both academic and personal, and there are an incredible amount of resources at the college to support students in many different ways. For example, the Academic Resource Center is such an amazing resource that helps students in any way that they need. Also, there are so many clubs and organizations that make it quite easy to get involved and meet new people on campus. Probably the most amazing thing about Conn is that most classes are so small, and because of this, you can get to know your professors quite well. This, to me, is the most important aspect of my education, because I know that forming relationships—even with professors—is a form of networking, and that is critical. In many ways, college is an investment and is about cultivating valuable, life-long relationships with peers and faculty that will ultimately serve you in the future. I would not change a thing about Conn.

After having toured many schools, my daughter and I recently visited the campus and it was by far our best college visit. The Dean of Admissions was a huge help in accommodating us from setting up specific meetings with faculty in my daughter’s intended academic major to actually conducting her admissions interview as all the slots were all filled. The info session was also very comprehensive. We felt warmly welcomed by everyone in admissions and throughout the campus. More liberal arts colleges and universities should model Conn College’s exceptional approach for prospective students. Very happy that my daughter is applying.
The Pr campaign is strong here. From the college tours to the admission process, they all give you the impression that this is the place for your 4-years education. But it's not. I'm not dismissing the academical opportunities here, the programs offered and the facility they have here, study abroad, exchange to some top campuses in the world, passionate professors, are pretty unique and productive. Though, life quality is second to worst. Terrible dining and dormitory program. The food is intolerable, residential halls are downgraded and residents' privacy is not respected.
