About our students
Academics that defy narrow boundaries
At Conn, “academic rigor” isn’t just about the number of pages our students read: It’s about synthesizing multiple viewpoints into breakthrough ideas.
Students learn to look beyond typical narratives and assumptions and build strong connections among the many aspects of their college experience: the languages they are learning; the disciplines they are studying; the communities they are inhabiting; their work in class and in the world; and ultimately, their lives after college. They learn how to make an impact—and how to inspire others to do so, too.
