Colby College is simply amazing. Work hard play hard. Everyone wants do as good as possible in school, but nobody is competing. School is chilled and people are amazing. Student body is pretty diverse, even though it can be grater.

Although the school has its flaws (as does every other college), the pros are far more abundant than the cons. Beautiful campus with awesome people, faculty and professors. Social life is really fun and abundant. People here work hard, play hard, and love the outdoors.

Devoted, enthusiastic, incredible professors that really help you to think in ways you never thought you could. Super friendly atmosphere amongst students. Several major "types" of kids: poly-sci/business/science-orientated athletes; crunchy, outdoorsy hippies; eccentric arts kids; super-students. Very white, accepts a LOT of Maine/New England kids and public-school kids (how I got in). Incredible, expansive campus with an hundred-acre arboretum makes the school feel like its own world (as opposed to feeling like going to school in a city park). Three dining halls with different/distinct food options, and unlimited meal swipes make life so much easier.
