I can’t believe the month is already over. Now that I’ve experienced my first Jan Plan, I can officially join the club of people who will tell you January is one of their favorite times on campus. Of course, I … 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.

What’s in a Name?

Winter storms should not have names. They get numbers, like the storm of ’93. Hurricanes get names, but alas this storm has been given a name….Juno. I enjoy the name, but I think this storm has been given much more … 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.

Snowed In

Journal Entry 49 – The message came last evening. A blessing from the Gods. Granted, in a small liberal arts college setting, the gods are the school administrators and the blessing is a snow day. Not that  I had class … Continue reading

No class today! Welcome to Maine~

First time since January 9, 1998, Colby will be closed because of the weather. Though I’m pretty happy about not having class today and have a break after 2 hours of basketball yesterday, I do want to go and watch … 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.

Applications Up, Temperatures Down

Well, it’s official. In anticipation of tomorrow’s blizzard, Colby has cancelled all classes. We’re expected to get about two feet of snow overnight–an amount of historic proportions. With weather like this, who would ever want to come to Waterville, Maine … 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.

Serendipity
