Reaching Each Student - Every Day

The Residential Education program provides a healthy living environment that enhances and supports the learning outcomes of the college. Staff members work to know students individually to help them overcome obstacles and reach goals; develop communities based on individual responsibility and respect for others; and provide opportunities for student learning.

We invite you to take a look at the following pages, to find out more about the people, places, and programs that make living at Colby-Sawyer so special. We look forward to having you join us!

Where You'll Live

Explore Colby-Sawyer's distinct living learning environment and strong traditions which allow students to experience a commitment to developing personal excellence.

Who You'll Meet

Our staff are an outstanding group selected and trained to encourage a positive flow of community living that enhances learning and promotes individual growth and responsibility. They work closely with other college resources to provide a holistic learning experience for students. All students make a difference in our community and should be prepared to be participants, members and leaders.

What You'll Do

One of the highest priorities for the Residential Education staff is to provide opportunities for student learning. We believe that the learning that happens in the residence halls should complement and enhance the learning that happens in the classroom.
