What do you like best about the area? I love New London for its quintessential New England feel complete with a village green & gazebo, a white church, historic buildings to remind you of past days and yummy bakeries. Pass through and beyond the main street though and you head into Robert Frost's backyard full of stonewalls, lakes for swimming, mountains for climbing and trails for running.

What is your favorite aspect of Colby-Sawyer? Colby-Sawyer has a welcoming committee that includes every person on campus. The community makes you feel at home from the start. Whether it is the security guard showing you where to park or the lady down the hall with the candy jar, everyone is happy to see you and help in any way.

What is your recommendation to help students with the college search process? Don't sweat it. Look at lots of schools, ask questions, listen to advice, go out of your comfort zone, take a deep breath and realize that college is a great learning experience no matter what school you choose. Just remember, proofread your essay!

A bit about myself- I like Maine in the summer. I can't get enough of it - boating, sailing, ice cream, Penobscot Bay, the sound of bell buoys in the fog, eating lobster, fishing and lots of swimming.
