Letter From The Director

Welcome to Colby Community College and the residence hall communities. We believe you have made a great decision in choosing to live on-campus. Our goal is for you to succeed both academically and socially. Our halls offer more than just a place to sleep; there are numerous opportunities for leadership and involvement, a variety of activities, and many friendships to be made. I encourage you to get involved in the CCC Hall Council and get to know your Resident Assistant (RA) and Hall Director as well as all of your neighbors.

We are proud of our students for all they have done to make the CCC residence halls a nice place to live and learn.

Please feel free to contact a member of the residence life staff if you need additional information or assistance. I believe it is important to be available to students so please feel welcome to stop by the Residence and Campus Life Office in the Student Union. I always enjoy talking with students about their experiences here at Colby Community College! Welcome to campus and have a wonderful year!
