  • 2007 was the first year of what I hope will be a longtime relationship with Colby. The campus is beautiful, the facilities top notch and the staff places a premium on professionalism and personal service. My experience exceeded all expectations and I'm looking forward to the 2008 Property Tax School.

  • Our program is held on a different college campus every summer, so I have had plenty of opportunity for comparison. Of all the places we've been, none comes even remotely close to Colby in terms of the kind of welcome we have received. At other venues, you are a customer; at Colby, you feel like a guest. They did everything in their power to anticipate and accommodate all our needs, with a friendliness and flexibility that never ceased to astound me.

  • Colby College provides a unique experience for approximately 700 Gordon Research Conference attendees from around the world each summer. The attendees enjoy the small campus setting as well as the remote location of the campus. The site offers up to-date facilities in addition to providing superior customer service.

  • Colby's attention to detail and personal service make our organization feel like I had a true meeting planning partner that I could rely on throughout the planning process right up until I was on site. I have done some organizing of events, and I know how much work goes into these kinds of things, and I must say that Colby consistently does an amazing job. The meticulous attention paid to detail ensure that our participants and staff always enjoy coming back to Colby.
