4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Crime on campus is typically limited to a few acts of vandalism by immature and rowdy individuals, but I feel it doesn't go much past that. Parking violations or violations of housing contracts are other common rule breaks, but these are settled by our Council on campus. The New London Police station is right next door, and campus security has a very fast response time, so I usually feel very safe walking alone.

Overall Experience: I've really enjoyed my experiences here at Colby-Sawyer. I've found it very easy to get involved both on campus and in the community. I've begun to create ties with several teachers by having the opportunity to connect with them one-on-one. It was really easy for me to find a few close friends that I can see a long future friendship with and I'm very happy that I decided to come here!

Overall Experience: Having at least one internship is required in order to graduate from Colby-Sawyer. There is a very big emphasis on real-world applications and how to get a career both with and without your degree. The Student Learning Collaborative and other programs on campus that are like it help ensure your success both in the classroom and in the real world by helping you become a well-rounded person that would be a strong candidate for any job or graduate school.

Campus Housing: The housing on campus is pretty decent. I think the walls need to be repainted, as the paint is often chipping off or discolored, and the hard-wood floors need to be refinished because of countless years of wear and tear, but the dorms do their job and it's easy to personalize them. While our cleaning staff are understaffed, the dorms are often very clean, except for the kitchen in my dorm which is nine times out of ten the most disgusting place I've ever been in. But that is because of other students not understanding basic decency, which I'm sure is common at most colleges.

Athletics: Most of our sports teams do very well and often continue into post-season. There are plenty of intramural sports and clubs that anyone can join and our athletic building is constantly holding classes in varying subjects from yoga to an intense boot camp for students who want to get active without joining a sport!

Overall Experience: I really enjoy going to Colby-Sawyer. During my first semester, I struggled and didn't know if it would be the right fit for me but after sticking with it for an extra couple of weeks I've become more confident and am excited to finish my degree here! They offer really good financial aid, despite their tuition prices being very high and there is a very big emphasis on getting out of the classroom here, which is a special characteristic that I've come to love.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have not heard of or had any negative experience with the security on campus.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't really interacted one on one with my professors. The class sizes are small enough that the professors know you personally and you are not just a number.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I got lucky, with a large room with our own bathroom. Then had one roommate move out so i wound up in a quad with only three people so there is plenty of space for anything. A lot of my friends live in my dorm as well.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Most of our teams are successful. Almost all sports teams so far have made it to post season. There is a decent amount of fans at almost every home game and people are very supportive in wishing other athletes luck before games. The turf field is beautiful with a view of the mountains and the field and track itself is nice. The gym is also much better than the one i use at home and nicer than i expected.

Health & Safety: Our campus is very safe and I feel completely secure here.

Overall Experience: I would chose this school again for its location and small class sizes.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Whether it's Monday night or Friday night there is always an opportunity to watch a game. More than half the student on campus are involved with an athletic team. It could be skiing, basketball, rugby, field hockey, etc. The teams can be intramurals or an actual team.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Colby-Sawyer College provides a community-based environment with plenty of activities to do. Whether you are outdoorsy or artsy you will always find a place to fit in. Mt. Sunapee is about a half-hour away and you get free ski and snowboard passes, which is a plus. The professors and academic advisor are always there to lend you a hand, advice and their expertise. Colby-Sawyer Faculty goes beyond their job description to help us student get what we need.

Overall Experience: I love Colby-Sawyer College so much. There is no way I would have been able to go if I didn't get such amazing scholarships, and what a dream come true! Colby-Sawyer is a small little school with a big personality, just like me. I love the small campus and small class sizes. If I had to do it all over again, I would chose Colby-Sawyer 100 times over. Colby-Sawyer welcomed me with open arms. To be honest, I get quite emotional when talking about how blessed I am to have found a school that fits me so well. This school is so perfect for me and for my personality. I am quiet, shy and humble. I love having a tight, close-knit community of friends and classmates. Going to Colby-Sawyer is truly a dream come true and I love it so much. I am so excited to spend the next four years of my life there, as I wouldn't have it any other way.

Diversity: There is a lot of diversity on campus and many people who are willing to get involved in politics, which is great because we are a generation who needs to vote. Religion is not as present as much of politics, but there are options if you want to express religious beliefs.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: For me personally, I really enjoy the nursing lab to study in as well as the library because I do not study efficiently in my room on campus. The professors are always willing to help. The registration process does slag sometimes but it is efficient and more often than not you can get into the classes you want. The workload is what is expected at college.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Around campus, there are places where if you don't feel safe, campus safety will come and walk you where you need to. Campus safety are always helpful and friendly. I feel very safe on campus, especially knowing a lot of campus officers think of us as family and want to protect us.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Most professors are enthusiastic about their work and help within their office hours. Depending on the course, some are difficult even if they are introductory, but with studying and use of professors, they are easy to succeed in. The class sizes are typically around 30 people which is nice, and there are many options.
