First Year Orientation


Congratulations and Welcome Class of 2017!

We are thrilled you have arrived on campus and look forward to getting to know you during orientation and over the years to come. As you embark on your Colby journey, we encourage you to consider the following questions.

What footsteps have you traveled in coming to Colby? What experiences have led you here? Who has helped you along the way?

What excites you about Colby? What intimidates or scares you? What do you hope to gain from your Colby experience? What footsteps do you hope to leave as a legacy to the Colby community when you graduate?

What does the next four years have to do with the rest of your life? What do you aspire to, and what value do you hope to bring to your community after Colby? Where are your footsteps taking you?
