A very common question about Carleton, a small, liberal arts college in southern Minnesota, is, "what can you do with a degree from Carleton?"
Check out this interesting article on Jose Ferriera, a '91 grad who is tackling the issue of imperfections in the educational system head on, and is working to leverage technology to help ameliorate the situation...

Over the weekend, four Fellows braved the chilly conditions and threat of rain to attend Valleyfair - a classic Minnesota pastime. Our day consisted of roller coasters, spinny rides, bus ride bonding (minus Michael), and funnel cakes.

You all have heard of Carleton - that’s why you’re on this site. Certainly you’ve heard of some quirks or traditions that keep the students motivated and rambunctious. But, have you heard enough about The Man behind the scenes?

Marv Rotblatt died on July 16 at the age 85. Rotblatt has been a legend at Carleton for years. There is myth and mystery surrounding his name because of the day-long softball game that takes place each spring term.

Well, spring has sprung us right into summer at Carleton. The weather has changed as drastically as the legislation up for consideration on same-sex marriage in this great state.
For the later, last fall Minnesota narrowly voted down an amendment to our constitution that would have banned same-sex marriages, and later today, Governor Mark Dayton will sign into law a bill legalizing these marriages. If you're interested in more information on that political narrative, this Minnesota Public Radio blurb is a great start, and you can explore from there.
As to the former, this May we will go from snowfall early on, to today's mid-90-degree high. Anytime we have unusual or interesting weather, one of my favorite things to do is explore the Carleton weather website. It's locally-gathered data and you can manipulate it in all sorts of interesting ways. Find the highest highs, the lowest lows, the snowiest snows and anything else you're curious about! I'll get you started by looking at May's temperatures thus far...
