Ride on the Magic School Bus

In order to fulfill my lab science distribution requirement, I have been taking geology this semester. While I have found that geology is definitely not my favorite subject in the world, I have learned a lot of interesting information about … Continue reading

Sushi and Bubbles

I really believe that there is something special about spring. When the sun peeks out from its hibernation and you feel the warmth on your face for the first time in months……you can’t help but be filled with happiness and … Continue reading

About Anh Uong

My name is Anh (yes it is very hard to pronounce). I am now a sophomore in AMS (sweetest dorm on campus) still ready to take on the world. Traveling from the far reaches of Massachusetts, I have really enjoyed Maine and the beautiful landscape that accompanies it. I am interested in everything from math to writing, which makes selecting a major difficult, but that's why I am here at a liberal arts college. Recently I have decided on majoring in Computer Science and Global Studies. Around campus, I can be spotted with a ukulele, a stack of notebooks, and a smile.

Flashback to a London Life

It feels like just yesterday that I was studying abroad in London – walking down cobbled streets to pick up a raspberry scone before class, touring the royal extravagance of Buckingham Palace, shopping for hand made goods in Covent Gardens, … Continue reading

About Meg

Before moving to "The Hill," I grew up in the quiet farm town of Princeton, Mass. Whether I'm making a brownie sundae at Dana, running through the streets of Waterville, or sunbathing with friends on the quad, I love everything about Colby, but some of my favorites are the flatbread pizzas at Bobs, yoga classes at the athletic center, and Miller Library's comfortable chairs. I spend time running track, visiting my CCAK buddy, and writing for insideColby.

The Room Draw Lowdown

I feel like I haven’t talked much about how my semester has been going so far and it’s already coming to a close. Every week is usually the same old, same old so I don’t feel the need to share … Continue reading

Poetry Slam

When it comes to school-sponsored events, I’m pretty easy to please. I’ve seen dancers, poets, guest lecturers, authors, hypnotists, activists, and more, and I’ve always left feeling impressed by their talent and grateful for the opportunity to have seen them. … Continue reading

About Catherine

Hi. My name is Catherine and I'm a sophomore English major, currently enjoying my first year at Colby. I was born and raised in Berwick, Maine, an exotic little town near the New Hampshire border. I am involved in Let's Get Ready, which provides free SAT prep for local high school students, and Inklings Magazine, which is a literary journal here at Colby. Like all English majors, I enjoy reading and writing, and Virginia Woolf. A hobby more specific to myself is that every Christmas I spend far too much time making elaborate snowflakes. It is a very seasonal form of artistic expression, but it is also, unfortunately, the only one in which I have any talent. Thanks for reading.

Back in Ten Minutes

Last Friday, the drama club put on a series of three one-act plays called “Back in Ten Minutes”–so named because each play was about ten minutes long. I enjoyed them all, though for very different reasons. They varied wildly in … Continue reading
