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. It was primarily developed by Nathaniel MacArthur-Warner ’20 with assistance from Karen Wang ’22. At the moment, Charles Solomon ’25 manages the site.

2) Uses racist, sexist, homophobic or other blatantly offensive language.
3) Targets and personally attacks a Carletonian reporter, the poster of another comment or member of the Carleton community. While the Carletonian encourages discourse, we ask that users be civil.
4) Is not from a member of the Carleton community, and does not meaningfully add to the discussion. (e.g. spam)
