Small campus makes dating life and hookup culture visible

Carleton’s small campus creates a unique dating experience and hookup culture that I can’t imagine is found at larger colleges and universities.

Professor reflects on Tuesday Group polar vortex email

Answer to the question: “how the polar vortex is affecting your commute and/or anything pertaining to work-life balance?” There are certain personal sacrifices one may be making for one’s job.

One Poor Wellness Center Policy

It’s 8:26 a.m. on a Tuesday, and I’m poking around the front of the Wellness Center waiting for them to open. It’s 8:29 a.m. “Can I help you?” “I need Plan B.” “We don’t dispense it here.   If your girlfriend would come in…” Well at least they assumed it was…

Letter to the Editor: A student’s reaction to “rapist” chalking

Dear Group That Wrote The Rape Slogans Across Campus, Imagine that you have a secret in your past, something that only the very closest of your friends know. Something so dark, so personal, that you can’t even bring yourself to tell your family. Something that makes you so uneasy, that…
