An anonymous open letter to the Carleton community

<ing winter term of last year, a Carleton student received a box that caused the student, as well as members of Carleton College, much anguish and anxiety that was exacerbated by the anonymity of the box and the items considered to be intentionally malicious. Sending the box was never intended to be a racist or spiteful act, rather it was a prank (in a series of pranks on close friends) that was intended to bring laughter. We sincerely apologize for our actions and the tension, anxiety, and fear that was caused by such actions. To reiterate, it was not our intention to generate fear within the campus. This was a prank that took on a life of its own, and became a learning lesson for all parties involved. We are working closely with the Dean of Students Office and the Office of Intercultural Office to resolve the issue and move forward.  We truly regret our actions and again we apologize for any distress that we may have caused.

Thank you.
