Ask about the Colby-Bates rivalry and you have yourself a wonderful and funny conversation. If you're shy, this might not be the place for you because there is no hiding at such a small school and soon you'll know everyone on campus, have dinner at your professors house, or walking the town of Brunswick with a group of diverse friends bigger than you ever could imagine.
