Community results from creating the right set of conditions. We start by assembling a diverse class of fascinating, curious people and giving them places to gather, opportunities to celebrate, and the support they need to thrive.
Where history’s great works of art meet today’s most enterprising minds.
Proud member of the NESCAC and the NCAA Division III, Colby offers 32 varsity teams, 15 club sports, and nine intramural sports—including broomball (think ice hockey without skates).
We define learning in broad terms. Beyond your classes, research, and labs, you’ll fill your days by doing the things you love.
Colby students invest thousands of hours volunteering each year, including mentoring local youth, addressing inequities, or launching bold new ideas for productive, cooperative civic engagement.
Throughout your time at Colby, we’ll provide the resources you need to thrive.
