The Last Post

I suppose it would be more apropos to write my final blog post ever for insideColby on the day of graduation. But final pay entries are tonight, so as Weezy says, I guess I have to let money talk for … Continue reading

The Last Exam

Finishing my last exam was nothing like I ever could have expected. Years of blood, sweat and tears. Minutes of anticipation. Gallons of coffee. Tens of rented macbook chargers. Alas, there was no sigh of relief or lifting of weight … Continue reading

Life Advice

Before we get to the mushy gushy end of the year stuff, I would just like to rant for a moment about how finals suck. So much of your grade depends on this one moment, and if you have a … 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 Final Grind

Two final grinds are upon us. The first one happened at Jorgenson’s where I get my coffee ground so I can save some $krilla when I’m doing the other grind. The other grind, as expected, is the end of the … Continue reading

Make Some Noise

Loudness weekend this spring was a sight to behold. On the backside of the Alfond Apartment Complex there are four apartments with patios. We all (I live in one) agreed to have a massive gathering on Saturday at noon. Besides … Continue reading

The Time I Had a Mid-College Crisis

This year was so much harder than last year. Freshman year was all about fun times, when everything was new and exciting. My workload was not that tough and my friends and I participated in everything from dorm events to … Continue reading

Goodbye Colby

This past week has been a blur. As the year comes to an end, I’m filled with a cornucopia of emotions. They stem from what you’d expect–excitement for the summer, stress regarding finals, sadness because I’ll leave my friends, and … 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.

LOUDness

To celebrate the start and end of every semester, Colby’s Student Programming Board (SPB) throws a “Loudness” weekend — basically a lot of free food, activities, and a concert. So far, I’ve been to ten Loudnesses (plural?), and the one … 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.

End of the Year Festivities

The end of the year is my favorite time of the school year. There is something about the end that brings people together. As I mentioned in my previous post, the end is always bittersweet, but I think because it … Continue reading

See You In September, Colby

Well, we’ve made it. Yesterday marked the last day of classes for this school year. I’ve always had a weird relationship with endings – I find them both exhilarating and sad at the same time. It’s exciting to reach the … Continue reading

About Katie

I’m Katie and I’m from the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. I'm a freshman, I live in Foss, and I love Colby! I am currently considering double majoring in Spanish and education. Some of my favorite things include: acting, singing, playing the piano, writing, fuzzy socks, chai lattes, lying in the grass, Broadway show tunes, Jane Austen, hedgehogs, TedTalks, baby animals, Gilmore Girls reruns, blue Freeze Pops, the ocean, and hugs. I’m so excited to continue my adventures here at Colby and share them with you all.
