The College's birthday, Founders Day, is celebrated on April 5, the date in 1911 on which the College’s original charter was signed by the Connecticut Secretary of State. (The Connecticut State Assembly approved the charter on April 4 to Thames College. The name was changed a few months later to Connecticut College for Women.) Founders Day events vary each year, but you can bet there will be birthday cake!
This day-long student spring festival, held every May, is one of the best parties of the year! Bands play all day long and there is lots of dancing and socializing in the outdoor Shain Library Amphitheater.

Guests can experience a slice of campus life by participating in faculty-led seminars, talking with distinguished alumni and cheering on the College's athletic teams. At Harvestfest, one of the most anticipated events of the weekend, more than 70 student clubs, academic departments and athletic teams set up shop, selling a wide array of Camel- and Connecticut College-inspired clothing, gifts and treats in a bazaar-like atmosphere. It's the biggest fundraiser of the year for most clubs, and a great opportunity to stock up on Camel swag.
