A Colby education is distinctly inspired. Combining world-class academic programs with an active campus life, Colby offers students leadership and volunteer options and rich opportunities after graduation. Students work closely with professors exploring new ideas, stretching to expand their knowledge and perceptions of the world: this is the core of a Colby education. Faculty members, world-class teachers and scholars committed to liberal arts education, challenge students in a collaborative learning experience that is transformational for both. Learning isn’t confined to classrooms at Colby; activities outside of class are an essential part of students’ intellectual, personal, and creative growth. With more than 100 student organizations, countless leadership opportunities, and an active, civic-minded community, Colby students learn to embrace opportunities, to see connections in disparate lines of thought, and to regard education as a civic resource as well as a personal achievement. Colby is international: in its outlook, in its student body and faculty, in its curriculum, in its extraordinary study-abroad opportunities, and in the impact of its graduates. Students develop a mature curiosity about other cultures and an appetite for engaged global citizenship. Colby is set in Maine, which offers natural beauty, a spirit of independence, a rich tradition of creative endeavor, and unique access to government, nonprofit, and business institutions. Maine’s people have welcomed Colby students into their communities for almost two centuries, and Colby students respond, through volunteerism, civic engagement, and a lifelong affinity for Maine.
