I would definitely reevaluate your decision to applyQuite BrightUndecided
I would definitely reevaluate your decision to apply to/attend Conn if you are thinking about it. It is essentially a far worse repeat of high school. The faculty is great but you are babied and it is way too easy to do well and get an A. The social life is abysmal as well as the diversity among the student body. A large portion of every freshman class transfers after their first year. If you are looking to be challenged, prepared for the real world after college, have fun, go to school in a vibrant area, and meet people from a wide array of backgrounds I would definitely not attend Conn College. The faculty members are great (for the most part) and if you look very hard you will find great friends but other than that Conn College is a $65,000 a year high school. In order to make it 4 years you will have to grin and bear it and convince yourself that you "love" your mediocre school.

Conn College helped immensely in a broad liberal arts education and the ability to think across a broad canvas.

What I loved about Conn was the ability to get involved in whatever you wanted and play a big role in it. I was into soccer, lacrosse and the school paper. And at the same time see your friends doing their thing.Go Camels!

Question
When I attended the College, it had aQuite BrightPsychology
When I attended the College, it had a number of programs to help students develop beyond the coursework - they were programs that helped with career decisions, resume writing, and getting internships. Students could even apply for funds to help with internships. Campus jobs or working with professors on research were excellent ways to gain additional experience. The only negative I felt was that professors in the social sciences (not in the sciences or humanities) purposefully dumbed things down to appeal to the less competent students, but I suspect this teaching strategy generally characterizes some social sciences. I find myself using skills I learned at Conn College every day of my life.
