Southern on the Green

A new downtown location for academics, admissions and community engagement.

Southern on the GreenSouthern Connecticut State University now has a presence in the heart of New Haven's downtown business district, providing the university with the opportunity to expand its services to current and prospective student services and enhance its community partnerships.

"Southern on the Green," a suite of offices and seminar rooms on the 10th floor of 900 Chapel Street overlooking the New Haven Green, is adjacent to the Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce headquarters.

Activities at the new location will focus on several areas, including fundraising; admissions, financial aid and advisement; business development and community engagement; and academic programming. A perfect example was the Graduate Studies Admissions Open House that was held in April, 2014, to highlight several newly developed programs in workforce demand areas.

"Having a strategic and highly visible presence downtown will enable us to maximize networking, development and partnership opportunities with the city's key players in politics, commerce, education and the nonprofit sector," said  President Mary A. Papazian.

The convenient downtown location provides an easily accessible "walk-in" center for prospective students to meet with admissions and advisement staff, as well as a venue to host off-campus classes for academic programs and networking events for student internships and job recruitment.
