We speak for the Terry

We speak for the Terry

Colby has a reason to celebrate: we have thrown off the shackles of a corporate service company and replaced it with a genuine and highly regarded food service. Yes, as of July 1, Colby’s food and catering will be provided by the well-respected Bon Appétit. This new provider is committed to local food, sustainability, and the humane treatment of animals.

Apology culture erodes institutions

Please note that I do not have the authority to speak on behalf of the editorial staff. The following piece reflects my own opinions, just as every opinion article has always reflected the views of the writer and not the Echo. At times I present undisclosed or privileged information, not to abuse the standing of my position, but to bring […]

A pragmatic defense of Bernie Sanders

A pragmatic defense of Bernie Sanders

I am a pragmatic voter. Unfortunately, as a Bernie Sanders supporter, many of my peers do not see me that way. In political debates in hallways, offices, and classrooms, I have been surprised by the absolute dismissal of Bernie, which many “informed” students on campus have communicated when either side gets on the soap-box. Their  message, while intentional or not, […]

The Echo submits to administrative censorship

The Echo submits to administrative censorship

President Greene’s State of the College address was delivered confidently, succinctly, and to great reception. In essence, it seemed to be a proud reflection on his presidency thus far at Colby. But, just moments prior, his administration took a step that greatly undermined that image: they censored the Echo. Even worse, our own newspaper took no initiative to stand up […]

The Libel fails to surpass pie

As nearly all of campus knows by now, The Libel has hit Colby. If you have somehow managed to avoid the thousands of copies strewn around campus, The Libel is a satirical newspaper distributed for the first time this year a couple weeks ago. Spouting an apparent second issue of its fourth volume, it is a wonder it has managed […]

Cake: a truly sorry excuse for pie

Everyone has that one day of the week when they’re being buried in stress, down on themselves and looking for light in a cruel world. We all cope with it in different ways. Some  read, some watch movies, some hang out with friends and some even exercise. I eat pie. I call a day like this “Pie Day,” though in […]

Woodsmen: a truly vital defense

In a recent article, the burly Pete Cronkite and fashionable Sam Chase proposed a hypothetical scenario in which all of Waterville attacked Colby College. While the duo proposed a light-hearted and well-reasoned scenario, they made one fatal miscalculation: “Dude, the woodman’s club would be so useless.” The two are shortsighted to so quickly dismiss the lumberjack squad of Colby as […]
