Welcome to Your Community of Scholars

Our safe, clean and friendly campus is yours to call home and is within close proximity to a wide range of experiences. Shops and restaurants are within walking distance, nearby lakes and mountains offer outdoor entertainment, and a 90-minute bus ride to Boston, Mass. provides metropolitan opportunities.
Representing 33 foreign countries, international students make up 10% of Colby-Sawyer’s student population
Share a Taste of Home
College is a time to celebrate who you are and where you come from. Maybe you will cook a favorite dish in your residence hall kitchen to share with your neighbors. Perhaps you will join the International Speakers Bureau and present your perspectives to a curious audience. Or teach your favorite dance at the annual International Festival. Bring your culture and viewpoint to campus and give us a glimpse of your world.
Friendship Families are Here to Help
Our Friendship Family Program matches you with a local family that will advise and encourage you, especially during your first year at Colby-Sawyer. Your family may show you around the area, invite you over for dinner, take you shopping and include you in some of their activities. It is a way to learn a little more about U.S. culture from people who care.
