Description

Positioned in central Maine, away from the city of Waterville, Colby College has fostered a challenging liberal arts agenda attracting students from all over the United States. Although it is known for its rigorous academic program, Colby has a vibrant college party scene in which students are able to express their personal tastes in music amidst loud noises, friends and alcohol, typical of any college campus. This study examines the music culture as represented in the music that is being played at parties and the contrast to the music played in everyday life, both at Colby and two other universities. A radio broadcast will combine various interviews, observations and analysis of the relationship between alcohol, music, and the isolated nature of the college in shaping a music culture unique to Colby College.
