Dear Colby Families,
As a proud Colby parent and leader of our DavisConnects program, I can personally attest to the abundant resources, opportunities, and experiences available for every Colby student. It is my hope that your student is taking full advantage of DavisConnects, which unites Colby’s leading liberal arts education with a set of internship, research, and global experiences to create a pathway to postgraduate success.
Our innovative advising model pairs students with expert professional advisors to explore and deepen their knowledge in fields such as health, education,
finance, law, government, public policy, STEM, communications, arts, and social-impact endeavors.
Our advisors work closely with your student’s faculty advisor and class dean to ensure an integrated approach to their Colby experience that lays a foundation for lifelong achievement.
We level the playing field for all students by ensuring they have access to funding regardless of their personal or professional networks or their financial circumstances.
Since DavisConnects began in 2017, we’ve distributed more than $1.5 million to students to support universal experiences.
So, when your student comes home, or during your next check-in conversation, I encourage you to ask them about visiting a DavisConnects advisor to see what is possible.
Thank you so much for being part of the Colby community, and I look forward to meeting you on campus soon.
With best wishes for the remaining days of fall,
