Connecticut College: Eight of the Best
Connecticut College - Claremont McKenna College - Colorado College - Grinnell College - Haverford College - Kenyon College - Macalester College - Sarah Lawrence College
Connecticut College is one of eight highly selective, nationally recognized residential colleges in a group known as "Eight of the Best."
Each fall and spring, the Deans of Admission of these "Eight of the Best" colleges invite you and your family to a free reception to be held at select cities in the United States. Each college has something distinctive to offer. As a group, they place great value on student-faculty interaction, small classes, and challenging curricula. These colleges send a high percentage of graduates on to graduate and professional schools, and count among their alumnae/i leaders in virtually every field.
The program includes presentations on admission, financial aid, and each of the eight colleges. There is also the opportunity to ask questions.
