Most Helpful Review for Connecticut College

Although interesting, Conn classes can lack challenge. Many students come from boarding of prep schools and are used to more demanding schedules. Intro level classes hardly require a few hours work per week, but upper level classes are more rewarding.

    Beautiful New England campus, close enough to New London that you can go on the weekends. Classes are smaller then the average college and professors encourage attending their office hours regularly. Lots of variety in terms of classes you can take.

    Connecticut college is a small liberal arts college that provides many academic opportunites. All from the CELS career office where they provide you with funds that would allow you to do any summer internship before your Senior year to Certificate programs, Also, majority of the professors are so passionate about what they are doing and often times you have the opportunity to do with research with them.

    This is a great school with professors who really care about you. It is a really expensive school, that is worth it, but sometimes seems like they are spending your money on things you do not need instead of things you do. Overall, this is a fantastic education.

    Connecticut College is a school full of rich kids that pay $60,000 dollars a year. The food gets old real soon and there is not any decent Mexican food around. On the other hand, the professors are very helpful and love what they do.

    Great private liberal arts institution. Nicest professors I've been able to work alongside with. Great opportunities to be independent and create your own gateway.

    It's a very good school with excellent teachers, a gorgeous campus and friendly people. The tuition is rediculously high, mostly due to its miniscule endowment. Very enjoyable college experience as a whole though.

    A great, friendly, and inspiring environment to be in. You are always challenged in the classroom setting. A lot of what you learn is sometimes learn from being outside the classroom as well.
