Stories of Faith

Every year Multi-Faith Council sponsors “Stories of Faith”, where members of the Colby Community share their stories, experiences and perspectives. These narratives range from some of the most challenging to the most rewarding aspects of faith in people’s lives, and we highly encourage submissions!

All are welcome, and be on the look out for more announcements concerning our next session in the Fall of 2016


What Matters to Me and Why

“What Matters to Me and Why” is co-sponsored by SGA and Colby’s Office of Religious and Spiritual Life, and serves to bring students and their teachers, administrators, and staff closer together.

In sharing our goals and ambitions, we become better equipped to interact in a manner that promotes day-to-day welfare and successful communication. Past speakers have included Jim Terhune, Professors Lydia Moland, Mark Tappan, David Findlay, as well as coaches such as Jared Breers.

Be on the lookout for our Spring 2016 schedule!
