Colby's work load is understandable for a college, and entirely reasonable. With good time management skills, it is very easy to get everything done. I am learning so much; three of my classes this semester are discussion-based and I very much enjoy that aspect of learning not only from the professor, but from each other. My lecture class is interesting as well; my professor keeps the lecture interesting with his witticisms and examples. All of them are willing to help students outside of class and are very personable.

Colby College provides a safe and welcoming environment to prospective and new students as well as an experience that is unique, challenging, and gratifying. The largest classes at Colby are probably the introductory science courses, which take place in rather large lecture halls, but most commonly the student to faculty ratio is 10 : 1. Finally, Colby has hundreds of established clubs, service opportunities, sports teams, and campus-wide events, but continues to approve new extra curricular activities at the student body's request.» Read More
