My first semester at Colby-Sawyer was an awesome experience. I made tons of friends, it's a small school so I know almost everyone already. Everyone is super nice, the students, professors, campus safety, cafeteria workers, etc. Overall it is an extremely friendly place.
As far as location, if you like a quaint town this is the place for you. But if you want a city experience or really any sort of life off of campus without at 30 minute drive, don't go here.
There's a decent party scene here, mostly athletes at off campus houses. It's small and nothing extreme but I have a lot of fun on the weekends.
If you like a small scene where you will know everybody and enjoy hiking and nature, Colby-Sawyer is a good place to go.

My experience thus far with Colby-Sawyer had been pretty great. I enjoy the close-knit community not only throughout the student groups but the teachers and students as well. Some may see a small college and turn away, but this campus allows students to create better connections with their peers and their professors.
The community there is amazing. It's such a small area, but one of the most diverse places I have ever been. The professors, staff, and students are all more than willing to help with any questions or issues you may have. There are great traditions there and activities for any interests you have. Nothing but great things to say about Colby-Sawyer!
