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!

Arriving here on Campus for the first time as a student I was welcomed by so many wonderful people. Upperclassmen and other first-year students drowned me with offers to help bring my belongings up to my dorm. From then on, I have met so many people who push me to be my very best self every day. Colby-Sawyer College has given me opportunities that I wouldn't have had at other colleges. Within the first few weeks on campus, I was employed and became a member of the executive board for one of those four clubs. I am a Biology major still deciding on what minor to enroll in. The good thing about this college is that you get a liberal arts education. No one is rushed into picking a major because there are so many to discover. Each student leaves here well rounded. My favorite thing about this college is how small it is. Every one of my professors has gotten to know me as a student and a friend. I am given the one-on-one help that I need to be successful.
My time in Colby-Sawyer college has enriched my life in many ways. It has provided me with the necessary tools to enhance my skills more, taught me valuable knowledge about this diverse world and people and concepts in general and eventually will enable me to hopefully become more successful in life when I finally graduate and get my degree. It also has stressed to me the importance of thinking critically and asking questions in many situations. All these aspects of college have also made me more well-rounded as a person. It has been easier for me to achieve these opportunities than if I lived in some other countries, especially third-world ones. These experiences are truly irreplaceable and I would not trade them for anything.
