A momentum-changing special teams play, a record-tying four rushing touchdowns from quarterback Bobby Maimaron ’21 and a career-best performance from running back TJ Dozier ’21 sparked football’s (2-0, 2-0 in the NESCAC) 36-14 win over Colby in its home opener. The game’s only turnover came on a play in which Colby punt returner Alex Sands fumbled the punt, which was then recovered by defensive back Christian Dumons ’19.
November 2018 will mark 100 years since the end of the “war to end all wars.” As the most destructive war of its time, World War I (WWI) saw the near-downfall of Western civilization, claiming the lives of over nine million military personnel and six million civilians. In order to honor their bravery and sacrifice, the College has organized a yearlong commemoration, incorporating the archives of fellow College students and faculty who gave up their studies to fight in the war.
Last Saturday, the College marked the start of the 2018-2019 academic year with the annual convocation ceremony in Chapin Hall, which included the awarding of this year’s Bicentennial Medals.

The 2018 recipients of the Bicentennial Medals were John Walcott ’71, Cheryl Robinson Joyner ’85, Michael Wynn ’93 and Shoshana Clark Stewart ’02.
