Area around campus is very rural, with a few residential areas. Waterville has usual chain restaurants and hotels. Not an exciting city, but certainly not dangerous or filled with crime. [View Full Report]

Residential at one end, rural at the other. Nice, older neighborhood entering campus and beautiful vistas and other end. [View Full Report]

Colby is kind of set apart from Waterville - you have to drive down a REALLY long side street before you see the Colby Campus. [View Full Report]

Campus is somewhat set apart from the town, with several hospitals in the immediate area. [View Full Report]

The countryside is gorgeous and ideal for winter sports, hiking, boating on the nearby Belgrade Lakes. Your interests should revolve around the outdoors, there isn't much nightlife around. Freeport and LL Bean shopping are about 1 hour away. [View Full Report]

Located on Mayflower Hill above town of Waterville. Upper class residential area surrounds campus. Nothing appears to be within walking distance. [View Full Report]

We didn't spend very much time exploring the local area around Colby because we had to drive back to down to Boston that night to catch a plane. [View Full Report]
