In March, three students of color, who were also Posse scholars, suffered a physical assault that left one female with facial bruises and a male student with a concussion requiring weeks of recovery. They had all left campus for a Bar Night in Waterville and stayed until after midnight. Upon taking a bus back to Colby, the students of color sang along with a Drake song that played over the radio, when a white student told a male Posse student to be quiet because they were disturbing others on the bus. From there, a few accounts dispute what happened, but a physical confrontation took place on the bus. The next day there were pictures of the incident on social media, Facebook. Colby put out a statement, and both student groups sent messages on the Civil Discourse.
