The Carletonian is Carleton College‘s editorially independent student newspaper. It has been written, edited and managed entirely by Carleton students since 1877. Currently, the Carletonian is distributed Fridays during the academic term at various points around the campus.

The Carletonian website was also created entirely by students. The source code for the site is available here. At the moment, it is primarily developed by Nathaniel MacArthur-Warner ’20 with assistance from Karen Wang ’22.


You can purchase print subscriptions to the Carletonian here. Faculty/Staff discounts are available here.
