While other colleges offer career services, we offer a distinct alternative. Connecticut College’s Office of Career and Professional Development offers a four-year program that combines one-on-one advising, contact sessions beginning your first year, and practical workshops with assistance in planning coursework and extracurricular pursuits. This program is an integral part of the Connecticut College experience, complementing the academic rigor inside the classroom. This approach gets results. One year after graduation, 96 percent of Connecticut College alumni report that they are employed or in graduate school.
Nearly all students live on campus, so the educational experience at Connecticut College doesn't stop when class is over. Ours is a lively, close-knit community where faculty and staff know you by name. As a student, you are part of a rich, multidimensional campus culture that includes a wide-ranging menu of lectures, performances, exhibits, workshops, club and leadership opportunities, and conferences and special events. Each of these elements complements the academic rigor inside the classroom to create an integrated experience that prepares you for life and career (with plenty of fun along the way). Here, you have the support you need — from faculty, staff and fellow students — to lead others, try new things, take risks and achieve your personal best.
