Being a non-athlete or more ~aRtSy~ at Colby?
I am of course thrilled to have been accepted to the Colby Class of 2023 considering how selective it has become, but I have a few questions about the vibe. From what I know about the school, it tends to have a ton of student-athletes and is stereotyped as super preppy. As I am a white girl from a private school outside of Boston, I am no stranger to this type and I'm sure I could handle it. I love hiking and the outdoors so I think in that sense I would fit in as well. However, I am also gay and interested in theater/film/art as well as activism. I thought Bates was more my scene because the kids seemed a bit "quirkier," but unfortunately I was waitlisted. I'm wondering if any current students or recently accepted students have any insight on the vibe...do slightly artsier, less "basic" kids find their place at Colby? Thank you!!6 replies
