Red Barn Raising a Success!

Thank you to all of our sponsors, volunteers and guests who made the Red Barn Raising a delightful evening and big success!  Our ambitious goal to fund Red Barn Reimagined project in under a year was met by the generosity of equally ambitious donors. We are within $150,000 of our project goal of $1 million. The Red Barn offers many opportunities for visionary donors to engage in supporting the project, with naming opportunities still available. The College’s Office of Advancement is available to discuss individual opportunities, including naming opportunities and multiyear gifts. Contact or 860-701-5092.

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.
