President Greene lifts shadow ban on Colby Men’s Lacrosse

Last week, the College announced that it would officially lift its policy barring members of the men’s lacrosse team from living in the Alfond Senior Apartments. In an email to the College community, President David Greene explained the decision.

“After a lot of deliberation, we decided that removing this shadow ban would be in the student body’s best interest,” Greene said. “We conducted a study in which we considered security camera footage, student testimonials, and beers crushed per capita. From this study, we concluded that the College’s party scene has not lived up to the high standard on which we, as a community, pride ourselves. Reintroducing the men’s lacrosse team seems like the most comprehensive response to this problem.”

Chunky Ragu `23, a player on the men’s lacrosse team, spoke with The Echo about the College’s recent decision.

“When I first heard the news, I was like chrew,” Ragu said. “As much as I love throwing rips behind Heights, partying inside is unyieldingly chill.” 

The College introduced the ban five years ago when Men’s Lacrosse hosted the greatest rager to ever grace Mayflower Hill—legend holds that it set a single-party record for the most transports in College history. Since then, no one from the team has lived in the senior apartments despite widespread calls to lift the ban. 

The Echo will continue to report on this breaking news.
