#Eclipse2017 watchers outside Mudd on the Colby campus today. What a heavenly day to watch the heavens.
Colby comes to Colby!  Members of the Colby Family Association (all descended from the family of College namesake Gardner Colby) held their 64th annual reunion in Waterville this year. We were delighted on Saturday to welcome them to Mayflower Hill, where they enjoyed touring the Museum. The cousins came from as far away as Texas and Minnesota to celebrate those family ties. Hail, Colbies, Hail.
Our three, new state-of-the-art athletic fields are ready to make their debut, and work on our new athletic complex -- opening in 2020 -- will start this week. It's been a busy summer on Mayflower Hill. #gomules
This is how we do summer at Colby. The fabulous humans of the New Directions in Gender, Women's and Feminist Studies Summer Institute take it outside.

A most memorable moment from the #YearofColby: The impromptu stroll of commencement speaker @vp44 along Colby Green, and his subsquent run to North Street Dairy Cone. A fitting ending to a great day. #thanksjoebiden
