Connecticut College Home

Q: How do I contact a professor or coach?

A: . If you don't know a faculty member's name, you can get one from the campus directory and also find e-mail addresses and phone numbers for all of our faculty and coaches. We also have a feature, "Ask a Student," students who have volunteered to be contacted at anytime by prospective students.

Q: Why is the Camel the mascot?

A: The camel, the "ship of the desert," was named our mascot for its endurance and fortitude. But there is, of course, a story behind the naming of the Camel.

Q: What are Connecticut College's school colors?

A: Connecticut College Blue and White. Well, white is just plain white, but the blue is sort of a royal, but not as bright, yet certainly not navy. It's Connecticut College Blue. (Officially Pantone 295 - See "Visual Identity-College Colors")

Q: Do you have any summer programs for high school students?

A: No, we do not.

Q: Could you take the phone outside and read to me what it says on the plaque located on the front wall of the Horizon House Admission building?

A:
"Never look down to test the ground
Before taking your next step;
Only he who keeps his eye fixed on
The far horizon will find his right road."
- Dag Hammarskjold, Markings

Q: What's the weather like today at Connecticut College?

A: See for yourself.

A: Their toll-free number is 800-892-3363.  You can also go to the Bookshop website for more information.
