there are a lot of small college parties, whcih is what students do on most weekends. but there are also college planned dances, etc. and a lot of outdoorsy things to do for those who are interested in that.
There's definitely parties going on every Thursday-Saturday. I'm sure you'll be able to enjoy yourself in the party scene here at Colby. But there are also other events going on at night in which you can go if you choose not to be in the party-scene.
To interact and contribute on College Prowler, registration is required. Don't worry, it's free, secure, and only takes a few minutes.

Colby students like to relax after a stressful week of work. Some choose to do this by partying and drinking both nights of the weekend, but most go out more occasionally and instead hang out with an intimate group of friends. Small parties that can fit into dorm rooms without arousing too much suspicion from security are abundant on campus. Huge parties happen almost every weekend at off-campus houses or in the senior apartments, or Colby's Student Programming Board throws a big event like a dance or concert. Security has gotten tighter about busting unregistered parties. There is a party host system, which means that trained party hosts can have lots of people and alcohol in their room without getting in trouble, but it’s an unpaid and risky position, so registered parties are few and far between.
There is always something to do on campus, and Colby ensures there is always a chem-free option on the weekends. Usually there are concerts, performances, dances, movies on campus, or other functions facilitated by Colby. Students 21 or older who live on campus will visit the Pub, while the ones who live off campus find it easier to frequent the bars and taverns of Waterville. Many choose not to drink, and there is certainly no peer pressure to do so.
