Waterville, ME - U.S. Senator Susan Collins and Colby President David Greene visited Waterville’s Main Street this afternoon. They toured 173 Main Street, a building Colby College recently renovated for a technology center, and 150 Main Street, a building that is currently under construction that will provide housing for 200 students and faculty, as well as retail space on the first floor.
“It was marvelous to join President Greene in Waterville this afternoon to see the remarkable progress in the revitalization of the downtown area. The partnership between the City of Waterville and Colby College has helped to stimulate economic activity throughout this vibrant Maine city, and it was a pleasure to see some of these successful projects firsthand,” said Senator Collins. “I enjoyed speaking with President Greene about Colby’s projects designed to enhance the college’s intellectual culture and invest in the Waterville community.”
As Colby College’s 20th president, David A. Greene has worked to ensure Colby’s place among the world’s finest liberal arts colleges. Founded in 1813, Colby is the 12th-oldest private liberal arts college in the country and serves approximately 2,000 students from nearly every state and more than 70 countries.
Senator Collins received an honorary degree from Colby College at the inauguration of President Greene in 2014 for her commitment to facilitating strong bipartisan compromise to achieve progress.
