Features, News & Events

Story Time

Story Time is an SGA-led initiative aimed to further our discussion of multiculturalism and community. It’s an opportunity for members of the senior class to share advice, experiences, and thoughts through storytelling. Over the past couple of years it has grown to become one of Colby’s most celebrated traditions. We always have milk and cookies! Join over Zoom here.
