Connecticut College Reviews
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.
Connecticut College was a very enriching place to continue my education. I was a Classics major, and I sincerely enjoyed my time as part of the department. ConnColl is a place to form long-lasting and unique bonds with both professors and students alike. However, I would like to see Conn become more diverse and more accepting of students from other races. As a student of color, I did feel rather ostracized from the student body. Furthermore, I was the only student of color in many of my classes. Maybe my major is a discipline that does not attract students of other ethnicities, but I would still like to see Conn become a more diverse, wholly-welcoming and socially-motivated environment.
The academics are very strong, however the social scene leaves a little to be desired. Most of these kids come from prep/boarding schools so it seems a little bit like an extension of high school. However if you can find your place, the community here is amazing. The campus is beautiful!
