Old Home, New Home

As I drove my tiny Nissan Sentra home for Fall Break on Friday for what seemed like forever (the usual 5 hour drive to my house in Lenox, MA took more like 7 hours because of holiday weekend traffic), 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 majoring in Spanish or psychology (or both). 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 Secrets of Walking on the Grass

As you walk around campus you have a choice. While getting to your destination, do you choose to to walk on the paths or cross the grass? I notice so many people traveling on the paths, even if it may … 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.

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.

Fall Break Escapades

When walking around campus over fall break one can’t help but imagine the cinematic ghost town movies. Except instead of tumbleweed, there are mounds upon mounds of foliage.  In fact the presence of squirrels become even more evident since they … Continue reading

How I Chose My Major

From the outside, my choice to major in English would seem obvious, inevitable even. English was my favorite subject throughout all of high school, the only bright spot amid hours of various shades of dark and gloom (the darkest and … Continue reading
