Name: V.B.
Message: I took a day trip to the Art Musem for an Andrew Wyeth exhibition. It was a wonderful museum on a beautiful college campus. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the museum has no admission fee. There is also a small Starbucks coffee booth inside the museum, so I bought a large black coffee, which kept me alert for the drive back to Aroostook County after my tour of the exhibition and other artists' works. There was road construction on some residential streets in the neighborhood of the campus, which confused my Google maps, but it was easy to figure out, and Google soon got back on track.
Name: Y.B.
Message: Colby College is one of my very top favorite colleges so far, along with Brown University. I fell in love from the first sight with its wonderful look and extremely comfortable athmosphere, a charming tiny coffee shop (which was closed in the summer, of course), a great bookstore, full of all kinds of stuff, all these beautiful sitting areas outside.. everything here is done with love and to make the best experience for students. I also love that it is so old and has a great history.. The acceptance rate is 10%.. Any student will be not just lucky to get in, but also happy here, no doubts.

It's unique 4-1-4 plan enables students to take intensive courses in January, while the curriculum encourages intellectual curiosity. If you are ever in Waterville, be sure to check out Colby!
