Dr. Marc Tetel joins Psychology + Neuroscience students for a presentation and brain dissections. He discusses how gut biology as students ask questions about how diet affects brain chemistry. Then, they don their lab coats and open their surgical tool kit to examine the sheep brains prepared for them on the dissection tables.
Downtown Portland welcomes students with its signature shops, tastes, and sights. They walk with friends on the pier, feast on lobster, try new styles, find souvenirs, and pose for pictures with friends as they experience a new city.
Students enjoy their Friday afternoon before weekend trips. Competing in the Cheese Ball Olympics, telling stories as laughter erupts, and playing endless games of Gaga ball, everyone finishes out their academic week hanging out with friends.

Medical Rotations students meet in the Colby College Museum of Art. From examining details in the pieces themselves to reading into the context in which they were created, students test their observation skills as they examine the painted scenes presented to them.
Leo McElroy joins Engineering students this morning in the workshop. He guides them on the coding required to create shapes and images on computers. Students end the morning engraving their geometric patterns and fractals.
Singing rings through the halls when students join together for karaoke. Hiding out from the rain, they sing their favorite Taylor Swift, Fleetwood Mac, and Queen songs — and cheer each other on.
Could you catch the killer? Students investigate the simulated scene of a crime in the residence halls. Each fingerprint dusted, footprint found, and blood splatter sampled adds to their growing evidence pile.
Activities take over the quad! Students paint pet rocks, draw with chalk on the sidewalk, bowl down pins, and simply hang out on the hill with their friends.
Psychology + Neuroscience students discuss diagnosing patients in the lecture hall before breaking into groups for research. The sunny day brings their work outside as students circle around tables and lawn chairs in the shade to dive into their research topics.
