Colleges and Universities in Connecticut

If you're considering furthering your education at one of the more than 45 colleges or universities in Connecticut, you'd be in good company.

Of course, there are other ways to let off steam--New Haven, home of Yale, is a well-known college town, and the urban excitements of New York City and Boston are both within reach.
