The campus is very accepting of all sexual orientations and transgender and questioning students. A student group called Sexual Orientations United for Liberation (S.O.U.L.) acts as supporting group for its members.
The political temperature of Connecticut College is decidedly liberal, but many students are apathetic and apolitical. The most active political groups are the College Democrats, the College Republicans, and the outspoken CC LEFT.
Conn is a very expensive school, so most students predominately come from well-to-do backgrounds. Some of the students drive nicer cars than the faculty.
Most Common Religions
Most students are not outwardly religious, but there is a sizable population of Christians. Catholic masses, Protestant worship services, and Baptist Bible Study are held every week, as well as a Shabbat Dinner for the Jewish community. Other religions represented include Hinduism, Islam, and paganism.
Minority Clubs on Campus
It's impossible to miss Conn's minority groups because they constantly sponsor lectures, dialogues, dances, parties, and vigils. Some current minority groups are ATLAS, CCASA, I-Pride, La Unidad, Umoja, and the USSC.
