We're Conn, a liberal arts college with a distinctive curriculum that encourages students to integrate their specific interests into their education and their activities outside the classroom. 

As you earn this purposeful education, you'll be supported by your own team of advisers from the moment you step onto campus.

And what a campus it is. Set in a 750-acre arboretum overlooking the Long Island Sound, Conn is located midway between New York City and Boston—providing you with plenty of opportunities for exploration and internships.

We meet 100% of demonstrated need, we offer financial aid and merit scholarships to international students, and we're test-optional. So a college education in the U.S. is easily accessible.
