Here Comes the Sun (doo doo doo doo)

Ahhhhh take a deep breathe of that fresh spring air. Listen to the excited chirps of birds, stretching their wings after a long winter. I understand how they feel. The coldness has lasted for a long while and I am … 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 Dog Days of Spring Break

Spring Break came at the perfect time this year. I was tired from classes, Maine weather, and dining hall food. Even though I wasn’t going to swim with dolphins or lay on a sandy beach, I was more than happy … 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.

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.

When you’re in season, break isn’t exactly a break. But getting out of the classroom and off campus is definitely refreshing. I’m sure it depends on the sport, whether or not your team will head off campus. Even my first … 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.

Unlimited Swipes = Unlimited Fun

At the start of this semester, Colby instituted a new policy regarding dining hall usage, a little something we like to call “unlimited swipes.” Before unlimited swipes, you were only allowed to swipe your card 3 times a day, once … Continue reading
