Yale University Law School

It is not without reason that Connecticut is the classic home of the Yankees. While Yankee was used particularly in the Southern States to assess times of the Civil War, the term is viewed positively in New England.

The typically smart New English Yankee, business-minded and successful, still shapes the image of Connecticut people today. The part of the state bordering on New York is often referred to as the “sleeping city” of New York City because many commuters live here and spend most of their time in the Big Apple.

But those who limit Connecticut to this have not yet really recognized the true beauties of this state. The third smallest state in the United States (after Rhode Island and Delaware) offers a charming coastline, historic cities and a natural hinterland with forests, rivers and lakes.

Neighboring states are Massachusetts in the north, New York in the west and Rhode Island in the east. The highest point is at Mount Frissel on its southern slope at 725 m. The majority of the residents are of European origin (including British, German, Italian). Otherwise, there are relatively strong minorities of Latin Americans and African Americans. The strongest religions are Catholics, Anglicans and members of the United Church of Christ.

The largest cities in Connecticut are Bridgeport, New Haven, the capital Hartford and Stamford. The population density is high by American standards, but you can quickly find quiet and tranquil landscapes outside the cities. Rest and relaxation as well as cosiness can be found quickly in New England. There are also trips to neighboring countries or to the metropolis of New York City.

Connecticut: facts

  • Area: 14,357 sq km
  • Population: 3,574,097
  • Abbreviation: CT
  • Capital: Hartford
  • Local time: GMT -4
  • Nickname: The Constitution State

Cosmopolitan and popular educational location

The cosmopolitan Connecticut has become one of the democratic strongholds in recent years and thus a “blue state”. The state's motto is "Qui transtulit sustinet", in German something like "Whoever brought it over will receive".

History has always played a major role in this state and it was one of the first thirteen colonies to wage the American War of Independence against the British. The state has numerous nicknames, the best known of which is "The Constitution State", ie the state of the constitution and "Provision State", because once the supplies for the army were made available from here.

Economically, Connecticut is one of the most successful U.S. states. Per capita income is among the highest in the United States, but there are major differences between the suburban areas of New York City and the more rural regions. Overall, services (insurance, financial services) and industry (mechanical engineering, chemistry, aircraft and shipbuilding, textiles) predominate in Connecticut, but there are also some areas under cultivation for agriculture (cereals, oats, corn, tobacco and wine).

A not inconsiderable economic aspect is the function as a popular educational location in the USA, including the highly regarded private Yale University in the pretty port city of New Haven. Those who graduate here usually don't have to worry about a well-funded position. Here you can also visit the Yale University Art Gallery, one of the oldest art collections on earth.

An original of the Gutenberg Bible can be viewed in the bein corner rare book and manuscript library. There are also other museums such as the local Children's Museum, the Yale Center for British Art and the Peabody of Natural History. Of course, the city also has great student and nightlife.

In addition to some state colleges, there are other private universities in the state such as the University of Hartford, Wesleyan University, and Fairfield University.
