I’ve always hated group projects and never really understood why professors insist on assigning them. In my experience, a group project goes kind of like this: first, you all say you’re going to do the reading/research by such-and-such date; second, everyone forgets that they agreed to do the read...

Take a second to think back on the last 16 years of your life. What has changed? Your answer to this question will allow you to see the hierarchy by which you define your identity. I know, cool right? For me, my first thought was location. While this may seem like an easy-out answer, location has pla...

When I first started writing for The Maroon-News, I was out of my element. I was full of excitement and misplaced confidence, but lacked the experience to back it up. Not only had I never written for a newspaper before, I had never read an issue of The Maroon-News, nor understood what was going on i...

During the fall semester of my sophomore year, Spencer Serling, then-Editor-in-Chief of The Colgate Maroon-News, gave me the opportunity to write for the oldest college weekly in America. Now, over two and a half years later, I do not regret my decision in the slightest. In fact, joining The Maroon-News ...

I don’t know how many times I’ve made the trip to Colgate. It’s a two hour drive from home along Route 20, “America’s Scenic Byway.” It’s a trip that I first made when I was maybe seven or eight-years-old with my family, as we all piled in the car to go to a football game at my Dad’s al...

I have a lot of thank yous after my time at The Maroon-News. I’ve always had a love for journalism, but I didn’t anticipate how it would shape my time at Colgate. I wasn’t one of the Pre-Orientation students. I only started to get involved during the second semester of my freshman year. But sin...

There are two typical responses you will get from seniors in their final semester of college. The first is that they aren’t ready to go and will miss Colgate more than anything. The second is that they can’t wait to walk across that graduation stage and leave the past four years in the dust. Both ...

After I told my family about my decision to go to Colgate University for undergrad, my brothers shared with me that my time at college would go by quickly. These past years have been full of experiences, but my brothers were right in that it would be over sooner than I would believe. It’s amazing what ca...
