Ready to explore the waterfront community of New London, CT, while taking courses at one of the region’s top liberal arts universities? Nestled halfway between Boston and New York, Connecticut College’s campus is a 750-acre arboretum known for its beauty, serenity, and community. Conn College – as it’s affectionately called by students – is bordered by a vibrant seaport community filled with rich history, quirky restaurants and coffee shops, and many local entertainment venues. For over 100 years, Connecticut College has been home to students looking to turn their interests into action.
Connect with world-class instructors in STEM, Social Sciences, Law & Government, Business, and more. Small class sizes and engaging curriculum allow students to dive deep into their academic area(s) of interest. Outside of class, explore the cultural, historic, and quaint charm of this harbor town.
Enjoy the picturesque Connecticut College campus in the heart of New London. Tucked into the campus landscape is the Thames River and views of the Long Island Sound. After class, stroll through campus enjoying nature – or step into town for a mix of dining, culture, shopping, and fun. Spend your weekend at Ocean Beach Park basking in the sun, walking the boardwalk, playing mini golf, or riding the amusement park rides. Want to unwind? Take a hike at one of the local State Parks, or have a picnic on-campus under a sprawling Red Maple tree.
