For incoming Colby students who want to:
– be involved in the local community (with youth at the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter.)
– develop deep friendships with Colby classmates.
– ask big questions about who we are and what we ought to do.
Lives of Purpose (LOP) is a student community, created in the Fall of 2014, dedicated to engaging a select group of first-year students in local service, and intentional community build around active reflection on ethical and/or religious commitments.
Applications for the class of 2021 are now open! Accepted on a rolling basis. And we encourage all applicants to select the Civic Engagement COOT trip (a new partnership!)
A joint effort of the Colby Volunteer Center and Office of Religious & Spiritual Life.
