We've been a little quiet for awhile - sorry about that! Things have been pretty crazy on campus with the hundreds of visitors we've had over the past few weeks... and the three inches of snow scheduled for this evening aren't helping matters, either.

More importantly, though — and this is what I observed on my visit to the Gould Library — Carleton College has a campus culture of intense engagement, of students who dive into their studies with gusto, of students for whom whatever is in front of them right now is the most important thing they’re working on. It’s not necessarily that they’re smarter [...], it’s just a campus culture of being really into things, whether they’re academic or otherwise.
