Connecticut College

New London, CTwww.conncoll.edu
The arts are big at Connecticut College. Every student must take at least one creative arts class before graduation, as well as two semesters of foreign language instruction. The most popular majors at the school include economics, psychology, biology, and political science. In keeping with its emphasis on career readiness, Connecticut College offers every student the chance to receive a $3,000 stipend for housing and food during a summer internship. The school is home to the Connecticut College Arboretum and its botanical gardens, where many students go to do research, study and relax. Nearly all undergraduates live on campus. While there is no Greek life here, students can join nearly 80 clubs and organizations and participate in annual events such as Camelympics, a competition between dormitories. With more than two dozen varsity sports teams, Connecticut College is a member of the Division III New England Small College Athletic Conference. The school's location, near the Thames River and Long Island Sound, is 15 minutes from the Mystic Seaport maritime museum, an hour from Providence, R.I., and three hours from New York City.
