Campus Visit Notes for Connecticut College
About 40 kids and parents there which were broken into 3 groups. Guides were freshmen and sophomores from Mass. Fairly detailed look at dormitories and classrooms. There was students at desk signing up others for community service projects. Some discussion of freshmen seminars which seem good. Lots of discussion of food.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
Spring Hill suites outside New London- very clean and affordable
