campus news and events

Warm Welcome for the Class of 2016

This year's Student Orientation Leaders wanted to reach out to the first-year class members even before the new students arrived on campus. The OLs created a YouTube Channel and each one recorded their own video in which they introduced themselves, shared a bit about their lives and welcomed the new students to the Colby-Sawyer College community.

Perhaps most importantly, the OLs tried to put the new students at ease about their upcoming transitionsto college life and let them know that they will have friends on campus, even on their first day.

Take a look at these videos, which are alternately sweet, funny, clever, shy, silly, helpful and heartfelt.
