The unsurprisingly problematic history of Date Knight

Esme Krohn, Staff Writer February 23, 2024

While Date Knight, or “Screw Date,” as the historically-minded among us refer to it, is all in good fun today, it has a far more controversial history. According to a 1995 retrospective in the Carletonian,...

The limits of CSA

Rahim Hamid, Staff Writer February 23, 2024

The most recent CSA elections have taught me that not a lot of people know what the Carleton Student Association (CSA) Senate is and is not responsible for. Many are confused about what CSA does and doesn’t...

Ella Parke, Staff Writer February 23, 2024

Since its release in November, Emerald Fennell's Saltburn (starring Barry Keoghan and Jacob Elordi) has been all over the internet for its outlandish scenes, such as the infamous bathtub scene. However,...

“Heartland Docs, DVM”, “Wrestlers” and reality TV

Esme Krohn, Staff Writer February 16, 2024

Meet the coats!

Natalie Cai, Columnist February 16, 2024

“Love is what you make of it”: A review of “Love Jones” (1997)

Collin Preves, Contributing Writer February 9, 2024

Too many CS majors: A symptom of a bigger problem

Malcolm Parnell, Beat Writer February 9, 2024

The bachelor’s degree has come under more scrutiny in recent years. A four-year institution is not a guarantee of a career like it was in the past. If a graduate’s job search goes poorly, people say...

Architecture of chaos and cake: Zaha Hadid’s MAXXI

Drew Rodriguez-Michel, Contributing Writer February 9, 2024

Two days ago I went to the National Museum of 21st-Century (XXI) Arts (MAXXI.) It’s Rome’s only museum of contemporary art, and if you’re not an architecture buff, it's a pretty wacky looking building....
