Michael’s Dairy has a long history in New London. Previously known as Mitchell Dairy it provided milk to most of the city. Michael Buscetto started working for Mitchell Dairy manager Roland Allen when he was just nine years old. In 1938, the Mitchell family donated much of the adjoining estate to a group of community-minded New Londoners to establish a college, now known as Mitchell College in honor of the family’s generosity, and becoming a neighbor to the dairy. The Buscetto family acquired the dairy and its property in 1943 and renamed Mitchell Dairy to the present name. Michael’s Dairy was the last milk processing dairy in New London having continued the tradition into the 1970s. Mitchell College purchased Michael’s Dairy from the Buscetto family in 2006 and still offers delicious ice cream in New London.
"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
