Every winter, Carleton students come together to raise money for the Alumni Annual Fund and thank volunteers and donors for their contributions over the past year. For a week of evenings, they call alumni, write thank-you postcards, enjoy sustenance from local restaurants, rack up points to earn prizes, and have a great time giving back to Carleton!

A busload of Carleton students traveled to downtown Minneapolis in late January for a midweek off-campus adventure at the third annual Carleton Skating Night at the Depot. Organized by a local Carleton alum, it's a night for students and alumni to enjoy open skating, free informal lessons, and an exhibition by local skating students.

This fall, there were several Carleton students scattered across Japan; one of them is my friend Rochelle, at Nanzan University. I took the train to Nagoya to find out from her what life is like living with a host family in a big city!

Speed, agility, upper body strength: all these skills are crucial for a competitive dodgeball player. A team at Carleton doesn't necessarily have to be successful to get a lot out of IM Dodgeball; working out stress or frustration at a dodgeball game on Sunday night can be one of the best study breaks on campus. However, this sport is more than just a study break for the Velocity Raptors....

For one evening, Carleton's Site-Specific Media class presented an outside projection show. The glow from the projectors lit up the area, inviting those passing by to stop and stare. This event presented to viewers a new way of taking art and video out of the gallery and theater and into a new space.

Japan is full of exciting new foods and interesting versions of "Western" meals that seem familiar—from Osaka's speciality of okonomiyaki to ice-cream parfaits made with tofu. Take a brief tour of just a few of the new culinary experiences I've been having while abroad!

The possibilities for study abroad at Carleton are nearly endless. There are twenty Carleton programs around the world, but if we don't have a program that's studying what you're interested in at the location you want to go to, there are also plenty of non-Carleton options. On average, 70% of each graduating class will study abroad, which means that there is an incredibly broad range of experiences.

One of the reasons I came to Carleton was to get to take classes from so many fantastic professors, but some learning experiences can only be had off-campus. Studying abroad in Osaka, Japan, I get a weekend lesson from a mountain I now call "Fuji Sensei."

Many people had something they dreamed of becoming when they were children. I set out to see what sort of jobs students on campus dream of today.

The barbecue isn't as good here, sweet tea is just starting to make appearances in restaurants, and the winter is intimidatingly cold. I was able to talk with seven Carleton students from below the Mason-Dixon line about their experiences at Carleton and what made coming up to Northfield, Minnesota for college worth it for them.

The difference and distance between Hawaii and Northfield, MN may be great, but the similarities and differences between these two have drawn in seven students from Hawaii. I set off to see how four of these students found out about Carleton in the first place, and how they are enjoying the Carleton experience.

Lots of different departments have research opportunities, but I've focused on three students who stayed in Northfield this summer to do science research. Kayla Nygaard researched lizard coloration in Professor Matt Rand's lab, Anna Snyder was in Professor Susan Singer's lab learning about plant genetics, and Nolly Gibbs was working with high-powered lasers for Professor Will Hollingsworth. Even with the diversity of their projects, this is only a small glimpse into research opportunities at Carleton. If you want to find out about other opportunities, look at the department you're interested in to learn more.
