Spanish Dinner and Sunshine

On Sunday night, my Spanish professor Emma invited our class to have dinner at her apartment. She cooked us all a delicious Mexican meal of homemade enchiladas, rice, guacamole, and other Mexican dips. It was a really cool experience to … 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.

The End is Near…So What Have I Learned?

The end is always bittersweet. On one hand, you feel ready for the journey to end. It had its time and now it’s time for something new. But at the same time, the end requires letting go. Letting go of … 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.

Finding Bliss

I do not believe in perfect happiness. We are hard-wired to worry, to expect disaster even on our most joyous occasions. When, as a child, I got the guinea pig I’d been wanting for months, there was not a single … 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.

Summer Is (almost) Here

The end of the school year is coming quickly. I feel like just yesterday I was moving into my dorm, putting up all my pictures and unpacking all of clothes. Maybe it’s because I’ve only been here since January, 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.

Teaching For Social Justice

The Final Countdown

“Colleges… can only highly serve us when they aim not to drill, but to create and set the hearts of their youth on flame.” That might just sound like another quote to begin a speech – but it bears repeating. … Continue reading

Commenting on the Commentary

If you’ve been following insideColby lately with a strong eye for journalistic professionalism you may have noticed that I posted my Phi Beta Kappa speech for the annual speech contest last week. However, after making it to the final round … Continue reading
