Colby Community College is located in northwest Kansas, approximately 50 miles from the Nebraska and Colorado borders. The college has grown from 99 students in the fall of 1964 to around 1,900 today. In athletics, CCC competes at the NJCAA Division I level as a member of the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference. In addition to an 80-acre main campus, CCC has a 60-acre farm used as a hands-on laboratory and training facility. The college also accommodates hundreds of off-campus students in the 14-county service area through face-to-face, online, and hybrid courses. A number of studies conclude CCC is a solid educational investment. Colby has a strong history of student performance and ranks among the best in graduation and retention rates for two-year public colleges.
