Parents & Families

Welcome to the Colby-Sawyer community, parents and families! The Student Development team is excited to help students engage on campus and make Colby-Sawyer feel like a second home.

Student Development at Colby-Sawyer is dedicated to nurturing student growth and enhancing their campus experience. Residential Education, Campus Safety, Student Success & Retention, Citizenship Education and Baird Health & Counseling Center all work together to provide a safe, supportive and engaging environment for students to thrive in. Through our comprehensive support and experiential learning opportunities, our goal is to help students develop a strong sense of belonging and community.

We are available to answer questions and connect students with other offices and individuals who can provide additional help. Our central location is in Ware Student Center on the main floor in suite 102, next to the elevator to the dining hall. Staff members are often out and about connecting with people all over campus, so students can also reach out to us via email ( to schedule a meeting or to find answers to questions.

Below is a link to a helpful resource guide for parents and families packed with all kinds of information to get families and students acquainted with the New London area and Colby-Sawyer's resources.
