Jed Wartman, dean of students and director of campus life at Colby, discusses the concept of community in terms of his family vacation town—South Bristol, Maine—and the Colby College campus. Reflecting on Colby, Wartman said, “It’s small enough to suggest there should be a strong community, but large enough to make that task a difficult one”—but one he enjoys. What impresses Wartman about South Bristol is the tendency of people to interact with one another instead of staying separated inside their own homes.
