Spring Weekend at Colby. This post isn’t even going to try to be funny, because I’m taking the journalistic integrity route and just giving you the facts. Not that I don’t always, but one might argue that these posts are typically pretty subjective, though I guess that’s somewhat the point.
This is the best weekend of the year, and yes that’s speaking objectively. The spring concert is always so bananas that I feel kind of bad for kids that go abroad in the spring because they miss it (typically.) This year it was Big K.R.I.T and J. Cole. KRIT’s pretty popular in the hip hop community, but J. Cole is the big time. I don’t really know how Colby gets these performers like this to come to basically the northernmost Princeton review listed college (don’t quote me on that) but it’s pretty impressive. Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean were here last year, if that puts things in perspective for you. I think they ate at the Burger King after, but again, don’t quote me on that.
But honestly, the most hilarious part of Spring Weekend has got to be the Powder-puff Football game. The girls of each class year get pitted against each other in what is typically a bracket-style flag football game. My class (2013) and the sophomores this year (2014) apparently made the decision to leave the flags on the sideline and play full on tackle. Which was objectively awesome. There’s tons of music and the crowd get’s really into it and you can sit on the field: it’s a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
