4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would choose it again! I love it here! It is great!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love colby-sawyer! However, if you don't like the small town vibe, this school is not for you. I grew up in a small New England town so I feel right at home on the beautiful campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I made amazing friends so far and the staff is very accommodating.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school I chose challenges me academically and I enjoy the atmosphere. I don't regret my choice.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The town of NL is very helpful and take into account we are broke college students so rates are okay.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: You just need to find your right crowd, and you'll have any amazing time

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: They are good the workers a very nice and you can use your ID card for most places. The only thing is this town is small so by 7:00pm everything starts to close but the Lodge on campus is amazing open very late and sometimes delivers.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Don't break the rules and you will be fine. They usually give you two chances and on you 3rd you get a serious consequences wen it comes to drinking. For drugs they are illegal and you will probably have do deal with NLPD and not campus safety.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got what i needed. Apply for scholarships though.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: They Have many options in the Cafeteria and the Lodge food is AMAZING.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: This school is Amazing for being in the middle of no where the school does an AMAZING job of keeping the students entertained with different campus events .

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The hole in the fence is a great place to grab a meal, they use our student ID cards if we do not have cash or debt cards on us. PC is also a greta place to eat but may be a little pricey at times.

4 College Freshman

Administration: This school has a very big honor code.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I have not really been to any parties but i hear all about them. Everyone says that everyone has each others backs and wouldn't let anything happen.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Just apply for every scholarship that you can. Keep your grades up so that you can keep your school scholarship.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The cafeteria food is not the best, but the lodge makes up for it. I have found myself getting sick from eating chicken from the dining hall and that my food is sometimes very cold. The lodge has amazing food and the price isn't too bad but, could defiantly be cheaper. I love that the cafeteria tries to have different selections of food everyday. The sandwich bar is also one of my favorite things from the dinning hall.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I absolutely love living here at Colby-Sawyer. I never expected to meet as many amazing people as I have here. The dorms are on the older side , but to me that is what makes this school even more attractive to me. The students and staff make coming here enjoyable just from friendly personalities and always willing to help others.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Small town with only a few restaurants. Some offer discounts others don't.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Academic policies are good. Attendance policies are at the discretion of the professors, some professors are more lenient than others. Campus safety only enforces parking if you are in a handicap space, don't have a permit, or park in a staff/faculty lot. Student lots aren't monitored as well, people with a strict K-lot permit still park in other lots as they wish without getting ticketed, and force others with the RS permit out of their allowed lots and campus safety doesn't do anything.

Visitor parking is for cars with visitors permits only

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a great deal from the school for aid, but when it came to helping me find outside scholarships, they were not helpful. If you plan to take out loans and want a refund check for books, request it as soon as you can, they often take a week to receive.

save money from the previous year and purchase books online before the start of the year to get them on time, a lot of professors expect reading done for the 1st or 2nd class. do not buy from the campus book store unless absolutely necessary.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: dining hall food can be hit or miss, depends on day and food served. variety is hit or miss as well, some days there will be a huge variety and others it will be things like salmon fillet or fish sticks for options.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Some of the buildings are older and rooms feel almost prison-like with plain white walls and no color. The newer buildings and sections of older buildings that have been remodeled, look great. Campus events are nice, wacky-bingo once a month has nice prizes. March wacky bingo gave away a wii u. Sometimes a new TV.

Best and worst dorms vary depending on what you are looking for. Weekend parties are in some, others are usually quiet.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I do not really know

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are not too many.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I do not really know
