How is the surrounding town. I'm an international student who has never been away from the big city but I'm looking for new experiences ? Will I just get bored to death or is there something fun going on ?

    It's as different from Kolkata as you can possible imagine. New experience, you will have them. What are you other options?

    It is about an hour from Portland, ME
    Portland has a lovely waterfront, excellent restaurants
    I am not sure it would be classified as "big city"

    Thebigcheese121 is from a city that exceeds 15 million people. Portland is NOT a "big city" in that regards!

    Well I will be applying this year. I came across colby on my college search but the location was a kind of a turn-off. Anyways I'm having different thoughts about the location now. Maybe a small town is what I need !
