Choose a college. The operative word is "choose." For most of your life, you were bound by curriculum and geography. Now, the choice of curriculum and geography is in your hands. So much freedom is exhilarating -- and maybe a little frightening. How will you make the right choice?

student in front of bannerFirst, choose a college with high academic standards in the disciplines that interest you. Southern Connecticut State University offers 69 undergraduate majors and 45 graduate programs in 4 academic schools, including one of the finest education programs in the nation. Our faculty is 1000+ strong, and more than 85 percent of our professors have their terminal degrees.

Next, choose a college with a culture and personality that appeal to you. Southern is located in New Haven, Connecticut, a historic, multicultural city of 130,000 that boasts a rich heritage in the performing and visual arts, with theaters, museums, and music venues -- all within easy access of campus. Southern is also a short drive away from the beach and only 80 miles from both the cosmopolitan excitement of New York City and the rural elegance of the Berkshires.

When you are ready to make your choice--the first educational choice that is truly your own--Southern is here to help. Contact the Admissions House to set up a tour or informational session any time throughout the year at (203) 392-5644 or (888) 500-SCSU, or register for your tour online.

We look forward to meeting you!
