See above. Colby is engaging more with Waterville. Including more community service, arts and educational activities. There are some cafes in town too. [View Full Report]

Smaller old town with normal chain stuff at each end. Downtown clean. Not touristy charm, more "real." In general, had everything one would need. [View Full Report]

Waterville is a small industrial town in Maine. Not terrible but not great. [View Full Report]

I think one of the highlights of Waterville is how there's a CVS and grocery store within walking distance of Colby (but it's a loooong walk) [View Full Report]

We did not see much of the town. Students have become quite involved in mentoring kids, put on a Halloween party for kids in the community today. [View Full Report]

Waterville isn't a metropolis, but it has some cute restaurants. Got the impression that students spend most of their time on campus, except when they do volunteer activities in town. [View Full Report]

Waterville is certainly not a major metro area. Walmart seems to be major store. Quaint town with splattering of coffee cafes and shops. [View Full Report]
