What is Colby College Really Like?
Hi! I've just been accepted to Colby, but after researching for a while online, I'm not so sure if I'm comfortable with what I've been hearing. It sounds like there have been a lot of racist incidents, incidents of bias, and just general insensitivity towards students of color. I'm honestly afraid at this point that I just wouldn't feel welcome on campus because I am a POC. Is the student body just a lot of entitled white kids who don't care about minorities and act like they own the place? Or is it as inclusive and friendly as they market themselves??12 replies
