Founded in 1833, Colby College is one of the oldest private liberal arts colleges in the US. Located in Waterville, Maine, the college ranks highly on several reputable lists, including #30 in Liberal Arts Universities by Forbes and #9 Happiest Students list by The Princeton Review. The school’s campus sits atop Mayflower Hill and is home to a 128-acre bird sanctuary. All students are required to undertake the Jan Plan, a program that allows students to pursue an internship, independent study, or take a trip to study abroad.
The people here are generally nice. Classes are fairly challenging and give a fair amount of homework. Students generally don't get off campus as often as they might at other (more urban) schools, which builds a greater sense of community, but also creates a bit of a bubble.

colby perfectly encompasses the liberal arts with plenty of research and internship opportunities. the campus, people, and staff/faculty are all truly beautiful on the inside and out. people are constantly looking out for you, while still keeping a competitive edge on athletics and academics.
