CLASS OF 2022 April 19–21, 2018

From the Student Government Association Presidents


CLASS OF 2022. On behalf of the entire student body, we want to give you huge congratulations on your admission to Colby. This is an outstanding achievement, and you should be very proud of yourselves. Since you have been officially admitted, we would like to extend an invitation to our Admitted Students Program. This program will give you the opportunity to explore what life is like here on Mayflower Hill and gather a sense of what it is that makes Colby so unique. Throughout the program you will experience Colby just as any student would. You will be able to attend classes that fit your academic interests and maybe even choose a class that you would never have thought about taking and find that you really enjoy it. Visit the Pugh Center, our hub of multiculturalism and activism on campus, to explore different world views and experiences. Feel the warm atmosphere of the Joseph Family Spa as it is filled with students, some doing homework and others just having a good time hanging out with their peers. Experience the different auras of each of our three dining halls: Roberts (“Bobs”), Foss, and Dana. And then if you’re feeling a little creative, you can take a stroll through the Colby College Museum of Art, the finest college art museum in the country. This program allows you to choose your own path and explore what interests you the most, just like you’ll be able to do in your future college experience. You are truly able to make this experience yours. Outside of the scheduled programming, this is an incredible opportunity to connect with faculty and current students to discuss their Colby experience. Learn about the classes they’ve taken, their study abroad program, their adventures both near and far, and why they chose Colby. The opportunities are endless. Whatever you are curious about, ask a student and they will gladly answer your question. We are extremely approachable here on Mayflower Hill, and we want you to have the best and most fulfilling experience possible. Four years ago, we were in your position: one where you balance the excitement of your successes with the uncertainty of your future. The best way to navigate those feelings is to get out there and explore as many of your options as you can. From all of us here at Colby, we wish you luck, and we know that you will enjoy your time on campus! Sincerely,

Marcques A. Houston ’18 and Elizabeth Paulino ’18 Presidents Student Government Association

The Biodiversity Crisis Global climate change has affected ecosystems around the world at a pace faster than many living organisms can adapt. This has led to a mass extinction event and the realization that we are losing a significant portion of Earth’s biodiversity. We will explore this phenomenon in three different ecosystems using scientific evidence about species declines. Led by Catherine Bevier, Professor of Biology

Thinking the Unthinkable (Or Trying To) Infinity, divinity, and paradox present themselves as limits to what we can know and understand, but mathematical reasoning, philosophical analysis, and mysticism do provide us with resources for venturing into these deep and uncharted waters. Led by Dan Cohen, Professor of Philosophy

Clara Lemlich and the Uprising of the 20,000

2-8 p.m.

In 1909 Clara Lemlich, a young Jewish refugee from Russia, sparked the first great strike by women in American history with a speech in Yiddish to a rally of sweatshop workers in New York City that a reporter called “eloquent even to American ears.” Over the next three months, Lemlich faced beatings and arrests, but the “Uprising of 20,000” inspired a rare coalition of poor immigrants, middle-class reformers, and feminists. Why did this landmark strike occur? How did it change America?

A Life Worth Living The good life—what is a life worth living? Dean of Religious and Spiritual Life Kurt Nelson asks questions of meaning and purpose with Colby students each year, in conversation with Confucian, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Utilitarian, Post-Modern, and Muslim traditions. As the religious landscapes change on campuses and around the world, how do we ground our sense of “the good” through community, service, and study? Led by Kurt Nelson, Dean of Religious and Spiritual Life

Association is Not Causation. So What is? When is it OK to claim that one thing causes another? How does one go about trying to determine causality? Is it ever appropriate to claim causality without conducting a rigorous experiment? Can big data help answer the question of causality? Is it possible to construct an abstract using only questions? In this talk, I’ll describe what epidemiologists and statisticians mean by causality and demonstrate different methods that can be used to quantify the effect a specific cause has. I’ll highlight some recent research that uses causal inference and a stochastic model to answer public-health questions related to mycobacterium tuberculosis. This talk is appropriate for: humans. Led by James Scott, Associate Professor of Statistics

One Little Poem Against the Whole World: What Writing Well (And Not Quite So Very Well) Can Teach Us We’re taught that we need to become good writers so we can impress our professors, make good grades, and eventually get high-paying jobs in tall buildings made mostly of glass. We’re also taught that writing well is simply a matter of mastering certain basic skills. While it may be true that avoiding comma splices may help you in the “real world” of profs

and grades and land you good jobs in tall buildings made mostly of glass, there are far more serious and joyous reasons for you to care about what and how you make noise on the page. We’ll read a few poems to jump-start some new thinking on what writing can really teach us. Led by Adrian Blevins, Associate Professor of English (Creative Writing)

Geology and Natural History of Bermuda; Jan Plan or Research Abroad Our discussion will focus on the opportunity to study geology, biology, and environmental sciences abroad on the island of Bermuda during Jan Plan or as a research assistant. We will focus on student experiences on this small island nation and how it fits into the Colby curriculum. During the Jan Plan component, students investigate how organisms, including humans, and sedimentary processes have shaped Bermuda; how sediment is formed, moved, consolidated, and lithified; and the interrelationships between geology and biology. Students will gain an appreciation of the complexities of living on an island and the anthropogenic impacts on a fragile ecosystem.

Led by Bruce Rueger, Visiting Assistant Professor of Geology; Senior Lab Instructor

Led by Sandy Maisel, Goldfarb Family Distinguished Professor of American Government

Modeling Behavior and Neurodegenerative Diseases in Fruit Flies

Why Culture Matters (Now More Than Ever)

In this presentation, I’ll provide an overview of current projects in my research lab. We utilize fruit flies as a model organism to understand chemical and genetic modifiers of normal behaviors and disorders, e.g., ethanol-induced responses, circadian rhythm, and neurodegenerative diseases. Led by Tariq Ahmad, Associate Professor of Biology

What is culture, and why does it matter? What stories do we tell ourselves about ourselves—through the shows we watch, the games we play, the objects we buy, the histories we tell, and the places we build? How has culture worked on Americans in the past, and how can it help us understand our contentious present—an era marked by neoliberal globalization and economic inequality, white nationalism and Black Lives Matter, alternative media and post-truthiness? In this session, we

consider some of the cultural stories of our past and present, examining what they are, who gets to tell them, and the ways they shape how we think about ourselves, our beliefs, and the things we do. Led by Laura Saltz, Associate Professor of American Studies and Ben Lisle, Visiting Assistant Professor of American Studies

Information Before and After Google: Impacts and Technologies This class focuses on exploring the changing nature of information and how technology has changed our understanding and experience of information over the past 100-plus years. We’ll explore contemporary information technologies and how these technologies have helped introduce concepts like knowledge societies, information literacy, digital natives, and digital immigrants. Led by Kara M. Kugelmeyer, Science Librarian

Bugs Are People, Too: Insights from Insects into How Our Brains Work Human brains are large and hugely complex, with around 80 million cells sensing, understanding, and organizing our interaction with the world. When we want to grasp how neurons take in and process information, it helps to step down in complexity. Most insects get by very well with around 100,000 to 1 million neurons, and they do remarkable things. We can learn from their efficiency by investigating how these little brains do things our big brains also have to do.

11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Meet the Majors Drop in to connect with faculty and students from across the disciplines to learn more about Colby’s academic offerings.

1-1:45 p.m. Living the Colby Life Enjoy a candid opportunity to learn about the Colby experience from those who live it. Hear about adjusting to the rigors of college work, living together in residence halls, and getting involved on campus.


Belief in Free Will and Self and Identity Processes The existence of free will has been contentious among philosophers, psychologists, and even laypersons for centuries. Emerging perspectives from social psychology suggest that regardless of whether free will actually exists, belief in free will has profound consequences for our judgments and behavior. My research in particular examines the psychological effects belief in free will has on different components of our self-concept and social behavior. Led by Elizabeth Seto, Assistant Professor of Psychology

Led by Josh Martin, Assistant Professor of Biology



Cooperation Under Anarchy: the Case of Nuclear Arms Control

DavisConnects Information Session

One of the central dilemmas of international relations is how do states cooperate in an environment in which there is no higher authority to ensure that they abide by their commitments as there is in domestic politics. In the area of nuclear weapons, does this mean that arms races are inevitable or are there conditions in which states in conflict can engage in arms control? Through a simulation known as the Prisoner’s Dilemma, this class will explore the conditions under which cooperation is possible using both real and hypothetical arms control agreements. This class should be of interest for those students who want to focus on U.S. foreign policy and national security.

Learn about Colby’s newly established DavisConnects program and the resources it provides to the Colby community.

Led by Kenneth Rodman, William R. Cotter Distinguished Teaching Professor of Government

An Overview of Networks Many people use networks every day, such as swiping Facebook and Twitter, searching information via Google, or watching YouTube videos. But most of them don’t know much about networks. This class will give an overview of networks’ past, present, and future trends. Led by Ying Li, Assistant Professor of Computer Science

Elephants and Environment in Sri Lanka In January a group of students joined Philip Nyhus in Sri Lanka to study the varied ecosystems in which elephants live and their behavior within them. The group traveled to national parks and communities throughout the country to learn about the important roles elephants play in the region’s history and culture and the efforts underway to protect these magnificent animals. Led by Philip Nyhus, Associate Professor of Environmental Studies

2-2:45 p.m. Campus Tour Take a tour of Colby’s campus and learn about the academic experience and student life from an admissions tour guide.


Lessons from French Cultural History: Does Genius Have a Sex? The modern debate about the origins of genius, nature versus nurture, stretches back to the ancient Greeks. An especially illuminating argument in this debate is the physiology of genius advanced in postrevolutionary France, which had significant consequences for gifted women by sexing genius as male. Led by Adrianna Paliyenko, Charles A. Dana Professor of French

Jan Plan, Ballet, and the Creative Arts Incubator This past January, Colby faculty and students worked in partnership with internationally recognized dancer and choreographer Yury Yanowsky and the Portland Ballet to create a new work, Origins, that was performed in February. The work featured Colby students on stage alongside the professional dancers of the Portland Ballet—an opportunity made possible in part due to the flexible nature of Jan Plan and by the support of the Center for the Arts and Humanities. Hear from the faculty and students involved in the project about the evolution of this work and the creative arts at Colby. Led by Annie Kloppenberg, Associate Professor of Theater and Dance
