Bates College, Lewiston ,Maine (12 mi approx 20 min)

A heritage of innovation from the start

Bates College, widely regarded as one of the finest liberal arts colleges in the nation, is a welcoming community whose members care deeply about the rigorous, challenging, and rewarding life of ideas and principles, and value their exchange and examination

Bates helps students discover their strengths, investigate unquestioned assumptions and make a meaningful impact during their years on campus and throughout alumni life.



Bowdoin College  Brunswick, ME 04011  (10 mi approx 20 min)

Bowdoin is an independent, nonsectarian, coeducational residential, undergraduate liberal arts institution founded in 1794. It is located in Brunswick, Maine, a town of 22,000 on the Maine coast. Study at Bowdoin leads to a bachelor of arts degree in one of over 40 departmental and interdisciplinary majors. Bowdoin enrolls approximately 1,750 students from across the country and around the world

A liberal arts education at Bowdoin isn’t about being small and safe—it’s about having the support to take surprising risks. Students undertake this journey with faculty members who are scholars and artists of distinction who actively shape their fields. From their first-year seminar through their senior year, students are immersed in subjects with teachers who illuminate their learning with their own passion for their discipline. Faculty and students work together in small classes, in labs, in performance halls, and in the field where students are active participants in performing real-world research.


Colby College        Waterville, ME 04901 (57 mi , approx 1hr 20 min)

The Colby experience is challenging and uplifting, enlightening and provocative, dynamic and focused. It is relationships between professors and students that transform both. It fosters intellectual and personal growth, with graduates emerging as conscientious, committed leaders ready to make a profound impact on their world. A Colby education is distinctly inspired.
Quality of place, quality of work, and quality of life are hallmarks of Maine, and Colby adds superlative liberal arts education to the state's portfolio. Maine offers natural beauty, a spirit of independence, a rich tradition of creative endeavor, and unique access to government, nonprofit, and business institutions. Maine's people have welcomed Colby students into their communities for almost two centuries, and Colby students respond—through volunteerism, civic engagement, and a lifelong affinity for Maine.
