What is your favorite… 

Dining hall? As a resident of Bobs, I must say Bobs brunch on the weekends never disappoints! 

Place at Colby? As weird as this might sound, I’d say the treadmills in the AC! I’ve always enjoyed running because I see it not only as a time for reflection but also a time for me to focus on myself and not worry about things that are on my mind. 

Thing to do at Colby? I love getting dinner with my friends after a long day of classes and doing work. I enjoy hearing about how their day went, laughing about the little things that happened, and relaxing a bit before going back to studying in the library. 

Movie? I’m not a big fan of movies, so I’ll share my favorite TV show - NBC’s This Is Us! If you’re thinking about what TV shows to watch now, you’d want to add This Is Us to your list. 

Song? It’s so hard for me to only choose one song as my favorite song, and it always changes from time to time. I’ll have to go with “To Build a Home” by The Cinematic Orchestra & Patrick Watson. Something about this song makes it very soothing, and I always feel different emotions when I listen to this song.  

Thing to do off-campus? Exploring different places in Maine! One of the main reasons I chose Colby was because of its close proximity to the outdoors. As someone who enjoys being outdoors and going to new places, I’m so grateful for the opportunity to spend four years in Maine and appreciate its beautiful scenery. 

What is your dream job? Growing up, I always knew that I wanted to live in the US someday. It’d definitely be a dream come true to work in a finance-related job in New York City after college.

What is your best Colby memory? Because of COVID travel restrictions, we were asked to stay in the state of Maine over fall break. We decided to stay at my friend’s house in Friendship, Maine for the weekend. We had a lot of fun spending time together, cheffing up some yummy meals, watching the sunset, and listening to music while lying on the dock.

Fun Fact! I was born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan! I haven’t gone home since I arrived at Colby, so I’m hoping that I get to go home soon because I miss the food and my friends and family.
