Time for Football Class

This semester I’m taking a course called “The Cultural Work of American Football.” Most of the students in the class are avid football enthusiasts. They watch the game regularly, understand the rules, and know most major team players. However, there … 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.

Broomball

The first time I heard the term “broomball,” I envisioned a game like field hockey except with brooms instead of sticks. This wasn’t too far from the case, as I discovered through my participation in one of Colby’s most popular … 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.

Mr. Colby

The lights beam as the room fills with students and along with them the roar of light hearted banter, laughter, and excitement. The music electrifies the room as everyone’s hearts synchronize with the beat. It was time to crown the … 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.

If you’re from the tri-state area, you’re used to being able to get an absolutely solid bacon, egg and cheese sandwich no matter where you wake up. Whether it’s Brendan’s 101, Uncle’s Deli or even the Millburn Deli, BEC’s are … Continue reading

Rehearsal

College theater can be a mixed bag–you never really know what you’re going to get. Luckily, Colby has a very strong theater program that spills out into an enthusiastic theater club called Powder and Wig. Though it’s fairly small, it … Continue reading

True Life: Addicted to Cookie Dough

What’s better – cookie dough or the actual cookies? (Both is a perfectly acceptable answer.) Personally, I love the cookie dough. It’s one of my main motivations for baking cookies, and I have little to no will power when it … Continue reading
