Central Connecticut State University

New Britain, CT

Central Connecticut State says, "A college education provides intellectual enrichment that prepares students for both lives and careers that will seldom follow a single consistent trajectory. The flexibility engendered by general education enables students to respond to a rapidly changing world. Multiple surveys of those who employ CCSU graduates indicate that employers value not simply students with specific vocational training, but students with a broad knowledge base who are agile thinkers, effective communicators, and independent learners--a profile long associated with the kind of breadth provided by a general education program."
