Welcome to Colby!

The Office of Parent Giving and Programs would like to extend a warm welcome to all returning families and the Class of 2024 students and their families! A great resource for you is our First-Year Families page.


Parents and families have questions and needs specific to their role. Below are some resources that you will find helpful, though you can find a full list here. If you are unable to find what you need, you can send us an email at [email protected] or give us a call at 207-859-4321 and we will gladly help.





Find Commencement and Homecoming 2020 information here. Families also visit campus and support student activities year-round. See the campus events calendar and athletic schedule for all events.
