Connecticut College Reviews
Connecticut College provides a great, intimate learning environment for it's students. The faculty within the Architectural studies department is excellent and the potential for employment after graduation is high. The department is also well regarded within the field and many students who pursue an Architectural studies degree at Connecticut College are then able to apply and gain admittance to some of the finest design graduate degree programs in the country and abroad. I highly recommend the school and the program for students of Architecture who are looking for a more interdisciplinary introduction/approach to the design field.
It's a great school for students passionate about the liberal arts and looking to take advantage of flexible, yet rigorous curriculum. Small class size and small professor-to-student ratio mean that students will be able to develop meaningful mentoring relationships with the professors. While the student body lacks diversity, the various departments and centers on campus strive to integrate students into every part of the community. The school offers a lot of resources to cater to students' varied interests and it is up to the students to pay attention and take advantage of them. I had an incredible education and managed to build some lifelong friendships.
Beautiful campus, caring and knowledgeable faculty and interesting courses.
