Take a Tour
Attend an Information Session
Find out what makes Colby, Colby. Listen to stories and chat with current students and admissions staff in one of our information sessions. Please check out our schedule and register in advance.
Interview with Admissions
We want to know what you’re passionate about, what your dream career is, and what you’ve been doing to make it happen. This is your chance to set yourself apart from other applicants. Interviews, though not required, are strongly recommended. Senior admissions interns and admissions counselors conduct on-campus interviews during the spring, summer, and fall. Check out our current interview schedule.
Eat Lunch with a Current Student
Hear about favorite professors and campus traditions and ask students questions about life on the Hill over lunch. Visiting students can have lunch with a Colby student ambassador weekdays and Saturdays in April. Families can enjoy lunch on campus on their own anytime school is in session. Check our lunch program schedule.
Attend a Class
Sit in on a class, learn something new, and meet your potential future classmates.
Visit the Colby Museum of Art
The museum is free and open to the public. Hours are Sunday noon to 5 p.m. and Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is open until 9 p.m. Thursdays during the academic year. While the museum is generally closed on Mondays, it will be open on select Mondays this spring. We invite admissions visitors who will be on campus March 9, 23, or 30 or April 6, 13, 20, or 27 to spend some time in the museum—the finest college art museum in the nation. See the museum website for more information.
