Living Colby is a series of short essays intended to provide information, insight, and advice to students about life at Colby in a straight forward and hopefully entertaining format. Living Colby covers a wide range of topics including academics, housing and residential education, co-curricular and social life, policy information, and other issues of significance to Colby students. The first few installments are geared largely towards incoming first-year students, though the topics they cover are certainly relevant to returning students as well. As the academic year progresses Living Colby will widen its lens to take up subjects that more broadly impact students in all four class years.

I hope that Living Colby will prove helpful and informative for students and I welcome feedback and responses from students and other members of the community.
