    Connecticut, a charming New England state, is host to over 100 colleges and universities in both public and private options. Yale University in New Haven is the most well known institution in the state, and it is also one of the most highly respected and prestigious universities in the world.

The Constitution State also has a handful of respected smaller private schools such as Quinnipiac University, Wesleyan University, and Trinity College, Hartford. The largest school in the state, the University of Connecticut, Storrs, has been one of the highest ranked public universities in New England for the past decade.
