A Multicultural Leadership Program for High School Seniors

Ask questions. Make discoveries. Explore the possibilities.

Hosted during October and November

Explore Weekend is a program for high school seniors from underrepresented groups and those committed to issues of diversity. Over two days, you’ll get a sneak peak at a challenging liberal arts environment and learn about campus resources for students of color.

Some parts of your college experience will be easy to figure out. Intellectual drive? Lifelong passions? You’ve got that covered. Building a successful future? It’s at the top of your list. To make it happen, you need to find a school that supports and challenges you. That’s where Explore Weekend comes in.

Here is a sample schedule of the events of a typical Explore Weekend.

Connecticut College sponsors the Explore Weekend program for high school seniors over two weekends in the fall. During that weekend, you and your peers will:

  • Attend Explore Weekend classes and discuss big ideas with your professors
  • Tour the campus
  • Interview for admission
  • Stay overnight with a host in a residence hall
  • Make new friends from across the country
  • Learn the ins and outs of financial aid
  • Meet College deans and professors
  • Learn about our home, New London, through a community service project

Applications for Explore Weekend are now closed. We look forward to your application for Fall Admission.
