A world-class museum. Research partnerships across the region and around the planet. A bold, new model for experiential learning. A network of alumni who live the mantra “Colby for life.” It is a vast constellation of interlocking resources that makes Colby Colby. These days, when people ask of the College, “It’s way up there, right?” it’s probably not a question about geography.
