CENTER FOR DISCOVERY, GLOBAL IMPACT, AND POSTGRADUATE ACHIEVEMENT

Slated to open in fall 2017, the new center will support expanded initiatives to ensure funded access to internships, research opportunities, and global experiences for all Colby students.

DESTINATIONS OF THE CLASS OF 2015 INCLUDE

Fortune 500 companies, global nonprofits, and leading firms that recruit on-campus. Within six months of graduation, 95 percent of the Class of 2015 were either employed or in graduate or professional school.

DEDICATED PRE-HEALTH AND PRE-LAW ADVISORS

A host of resources (including internships and job shadowing) help students thrive in application processes while maintaining the flexibility to enhance their medical or law practice by pursuing a broad liberal arts education. Colby’s five-year medical school acceptance rate is nearly double the 2015 national average, and graduates were admitted to 16 of the country’s top 20 law schools during the 2015 cycle.

Internships

Employers expect applicants to show up for an interview with experience on their résumés. So we do everything we can to help students land internships, make meaningful connections, and gain professional know-how. Our professors, alumni, and Career Center counselors will help you find, land, and fund internship experiences in your area interest—and even get academic credit for them.

Alumni Successes

They succeed for a reason. They worked hard to get to Colby in the first place. They gained broad, informed perspectives in their journey through the liberal arts and sciences. They logged valuable experience in the lab and global classroom. They land jobs at leading companies and organizations, win prestigious postgraduate fellowships, and earn advanced degrees at the world’s leading universities. They’re leaders and influencers who nevertheless take time to give back to current students.
