Hey! This is My Seat….

You walk into your 9:00am class and your stomach sinks as you notice the atrocity in front of you. The corner seat in the second row, the best row, the one you have sat in all semester to the point … 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.

Courses and Majors and Minors, OH MY

Although I am still only a first-year student, and do not technically have to declare a major until next spring, I recently declared as an education major with a concentration in human development. It’s sort of funny because before coming … Continue reading

The Science of Chairs

Colby does chairs well. Now what does this even mean? Strewn around campus are chairs; in classrooms, dorms, study spaces, everywhere! Chairs are an essential part of our society as they provide a place for our legs to rest. But … 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.

International Extravaganza

International Extravaganza is one of the biggest events organised by the international club in Colby College. I am glad that I participated in 2 of the dances and the fashion show representing Hong Kong. Coming from UWC, I always missed … 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.

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.

Before coming into Colby, every freshman goes on a Colby Outdoor Orientation Trip (COOT). These trips are awesome – they help you get past the surface “Hey what’s your name? Where are you from?” kind of conversations and really get … Continue reading
