Your Career Path Starts with Hillyer

At Hillyer, we see students for who they are: individuals with unique backgrounds, perspectives, and learning styles.

We’re the opposite of a one-size-fits-all approach to college. With our own Study Center, dedicated faculty, and accessible advisors, your Hillyer experience will be unique to you. Hillyer’s small class sizes — no class has more than 18 students — ensure that you will receive personalized attention.

From your first day on campus, you will be a part of Hillyer College and one of our other schools through our Dual Admission Program. At Hillyer, you'll get the advantage of pursuing your major with extra support.

You also have the added advantage of dual admission, which allows you to earn credits toward your major while receiving one-on-one academic support.

Dayna Dinnall
Undergraduate Student, '21

Dayna Dinnall participated in the Legislative Internship Program, where she worked for House Representative Charlie L. Stallworth and would go to the State Capitol, specifically to the Democratic caucus room, to assist her legislator.

With approximately 15 percent fewer internship placement opportunities available due to legislator turnover last spring—and more student applications than ever to the program—the selection process was highly competitive.

This internship has changed my perspective and potentially expanded my career opportunities after college. My time at the Connecticut General Assembly has been an experience of a lifetime, to say the least.
