Most of Colby's weekend socializing starts with small gatherings in a friend's dorm room and ends with a larger party either off campus or at the senior apartments on campus. Dances occur about once a month and are a great way to see friends and meet new people. During the week, socializing occurs in dining halls, at the gym, in the library, and in dorms.
Hookups or Relationships?
Either/or, but casual dating is almost unheard of. Colby students tend to either hook up randomly and frequently or get involved in intense and long-term relationships. A small percentage of drunk weekend hookups turn into relationships but only after at least a month of hooking up. Many upperclassmen are in long-term relationships, but freshmen tend to play the field.
Colby students are varied in their dress styles. You'll see everything from athletes decked out in team gear to the preps in khakis and polar fleece to the outdoorsy students showing off dirtied Carhartts and flannel. Every student owns several bookstore items and wears this Colby gear with pride. Students carry totes or backpacks to class, and girls accessorize with pearls.
