Benching for Waterville

We would like to introduce a new event to Colby for the spring of 2015: the 1st Annual Benching for Waterville fundraiser.

Here are some details on this new fundraiser to be held on Friday, April 24th, at 4pm in the Athletic Center:
-Teams of 4 will compete for maximum-rep bench pressing in one of these four weight classes: 45/95, 135, 185, or 225 (pounds)
– There are four categories that a team can enter in (choose 1): Men’s, Women’s, Mixed-Gender, and Best Costume. Winners are based on a formula that takes in the amount you benched as well as your body weight so the playing field is even!
-Winners in each category will receive prizes totaling $100 in value. Winning teams will be determined by a weighted-average mathematical formula that takes into account, for each team member, the weight that they bench, their number of repetitions, and their body weight.
-All participants will receive a “Benching for Waterville” T-shirt
-All participants are encouraged to help themselves to pizza and refreshments provided by the Korner Store

The cost of entry for Colby students is $10 per person ($40 per team) and all profits will be donated to the Future of Maine Foundation, which helps local high school students pay for the expenses of studying in college.

There are two ways to register a team:

come see us in the Spa Monday-Friday this week, any time from 10-1pm

We look forward to seeing you and your team “Bench for Waterville“!

2015-2016 SGA Executive Board Applications

Colby,

I hope everyone’s Spring Break is off to a great start!

Brittany Chin and Michael Loginoff are excited to announce that SGA Executive Board applications for the 2015-2016 academic year have officially opened! The deadline for applications is Sunday, April 5th at 9pm. Any applications e-mailed after that time will not be accepted – no exceptions.

Use this link to access the application.

Brittany and Mike will be reviewing potential team members to work with during next year. It is important to note that rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors can apply. However, applicants must be on campus for both semesters (being away for JanPlan is acceptable).

Aside from the President and Vice President of SGA, the Executive Board is currently comprised of the already-elected Treasurer and four appointed positions: Parliamentarian, Publicity Chair, Administrative Assistant, and Multicultural Affairs Chair.  In the application, you can find job descriptions adapted from the SGA Constitution.

To apply for the Executive Board, please send your applications to Brittany Chin (btchin@colby.edu) AND Michael Loginoff (mplogino@colby.edu).

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact Brittany or Mike.
