President Bergeron talks with NBC Connecticut about the benefits of the liberal arts

Connecticut College President Katherine Bergeron sat down with NBC Connecticut news anchor Kerri-Lee Mayland Thursday morning to discuss the value of a liberal arts education.

The broadcast led with a clip of Bergeron singing a remixed rendition of the College’s Alma Mater at Commencement in May. After discussing the song, which has received a lot of attention online, Bergeron spoke about the unique experiences afforded Connecticut College students through close relationships with faculty, opportunities for leadership roles and engagement, and the chance to conduct high-level research.

Bergeron also noted the College’s new curriculum, Connections, as an example of how a liberal arts education works to build successful students and future leaders.
