Studying in Connecticut

Located in the New England region of the northeastern United States, the prosperous state of Connecticut boasts one of the highest per capita and median household incomes in the United States. For international students exploring study abroad options in Connecticut, the wealth of this state produces great windfall, especially in the form of access to well-developed and maintained cities, streets, campuses, and parks state-wide. Not to mention, international students studying in southern Connecticut are but a stone's throw away from New York and many of the finest schools in the country.
