Campus Activities

The Campus Activities Board, which you can join, plans movies, games, dances, dinners—anything fun to bring Mitchell students together.  Trips to New York City for a Broadway Play, to Providence, RI for a hockey game or just downtown for a film festival—Campus Life gets you off campus too, enjoying everything between NYC and Boston.

Performing Arts

Express yourself artistically at Mitchell College. It’s one of the many ways students stretch and put themselves out there by trying something new.  Students stage a dramatic play, a musical and a cabaret each year with roles on stage and behind the scenes. Mitchell Radio is on air, DJ-ing at campus and community events, and creating special interest programs.  Mitchell College Step Team and Dance Team perform throughout the year at different events, including Mitchell spirit events and athletic games.

Leadership

Leaders are discovered at Mitchell College. Beginning in the First Year Experience and the LeadersFIRST program, students find their voice and ways to contribute on campus and in the community. Clubs and organizations, athletic teams and committees, peer mentors and residence hall assistants, academics classrooms and study groups—all develop leaders from within. Campus Life develops your skills in leadership living communities, training sessions and programing. The Student Government Association (known as the SGA on campus) is the parent organization for all other clubs and organizations which establish an agenda to address issues and sponsor activities for the college community.

Service

Mitchell College is a close-knit community in the small city of New London, where neighbors help neighbors. Active community service through clubs is part of Mitchell’s history and plays an important role in New London. Just like in all our activities, students have the chance to take the lead and pursue a passion or work toward a professional goal. Travel with the Alternate Spring Break to do good in the wider world. Serve your local community through Mitchell College’s one-day Big Event each spring. Take advantage of service opportunities offered through Campus Life and Athletics throughout the year.

The process is simple. Get started now

A few words on fit.

 

"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.

 

If you are looking for a college that: 

 

  • Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual
  • Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways
  • Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success
  • Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience
  • Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience
  • Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities
  • Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences
  • Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world
  • Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities

 

 

 

…Mitchell College delivers in a powerful way.
