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.

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.
