Connecticut College Reviews
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.
Connecticut college has a great social scene and awesome academics. You'll get so much out of the school's many clubs, work studies, surrounding community and sports teams, but you have to seek these experiences out rather than waiting for them to come to you. The facilities are getting better every year. There is a large arboretum and greenhouse that makes outdoor access very easy, not to mention running trails and river access on the west side of campus. The major downside to the school is the steep tuition that seems to drastically increase year by year.
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.
