“Hi! I’m Zaniah, but I go by Zee. I am a rising sophomore at Colby College in Waterville, Maine. I am originally from Maryland. I plan to major in biology here but I am also considering minoring in sociology.⁠⁠
The environment at Colby is quite different from the environment in my hometown, but I am getting used to it. I came from a very diverse area, where every person you would meet would have a very distinct background. At first, Colby seems to have one type of student; however, the more you learn about people, the more you realize everyone has something unique and special about them. I d8e776e3-b586-4ca3-9b96-3be5437a570dstill find ways to enjoy myself and I have found people who I genuinely enjoy hanging out with.⁠⁠
Jan Plan was definitely the highlight of my experiences here so far. I took a fun and interesting class called Values Education and learned so much from it. I enjoyed going to that class 3 times a week and doing all of the mini assignments. Additionally, I was able to go skiing and snow tubing for the first time! I had a blast for sure!⁠⁠
Colby has done a great job at protecting their students from COVID-19. We test very frequently. I don’t have anything to compare it to, but my freshman year was still amazing despite COVID. I had most of my classes in person with only 1/4 being fully remote. I’m so excited for the next 3 years here.”⁠⁠ – @zxniahhh
