Pi the Pumpkin, Colby College’s Newest Student

On Saturday, a very important event took place. Pi the Pumpkin was born. It started off as a normal day; I woke up, went to the gym, ate breakfast in Dana, and then went over to the Spa to do … Continue reading

Rub A Pub Pub

Three men eating late night grub. And who do you think they were? Seen-yahs? I can’t believe I have yet to write about the infamous and wild boogie night that occurs every Wednesday night on the tip-top of Mayflower Hill … Continue reading

El Miedo de Spanish

When I entered Spanish 128 on the first day of classes, I was ready. It had been a year since I had spoken Spanish formally, but I loved the language. Everything about it was beautiful and fascinating, from the rolling … 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.

The Pitfalls of Buying Used Books

“That ending was a little weird, wasn’t it?” I asked my classmate before class began. “Oh, I really liked it. Everything came together really neatly.” “Really? I had the opposite reaction. It seemed so abrupt, and she never tells us … 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.

Nice break: Millet House

Weekends are never boring. Weekends are nice breaks. Weekends motivate me to work more during the school days. This week, I joined the Asian Students Association Retreat. We went to Millet House, which is around 10 minutes walk away from … Continue reading

About Stephanie

I am a freshman at Colby College, originally from Hong Kong. For the last two years of high school, I studied at Li Po Chun United World College (LPCUWC). I am very interested in economics and economic policy. Presumably, it will be my major. Living in a business hub since I was born, I am always very curious about how international and local businesses find opportunities in a tiny city. Music is very important in my life, too. I have been playing piano since I was four and I also play the clarinet. I wish to learn Jazz piano at Colby and the professors here are amazing.

Oh, What a Beautiful Morning!

There are few things more appreciated than a bright and sunny afternoon after a week of horrendous downpours. Thank you, Helius, for finally pulling out your chariot today. If you’d like to do that more often, I can promise no … Continue reading

Thai, Ice Cream, and Ballroom Dancing

As this week comes to an end, a lot of my stress has gone down (temporarily, of course). I’ve learned that college is a never-ending cycle of new work and assignments, but that’s okay. It’s all about getting things done … Continue reading

Rain Is A Good Thing

For those not in the northeast, there’s been a nor’easter howling about the past week or so. According to meteorologist and country singer Luke Bryan, rain is a good thing. So I suppose I need to avoid thinking about the … Continue reading

Let’s Eat!….with 6 Strangers

One day, I was standing in line waiting for food in Dana. That’s how stories always start, isn’t it?…..with food. As I always do, I started up conversation with the girl in front of me, remarking on whether it was … Continue reading

Rain, Rain, Go Away

I usually really like the rain. One day this summer, I had just finished buying groceries and it was pouring rain; there was a huge mob of shoppers standing by the sliding doors waiting for the rain to stop before … Continue reading
