Have you done any volunteering at Carleton?
Through the ACT center I teach science and ecological conservation lessons to third graders with a program called Kids for Conservation (KFC). It's great to get off campus for an hour a week, interact with a lot of kids, and learn a lot about science and conservation in the process.
I cleared the invasive buckthorn plant in the Arb during New Student Week. It was a surprisingly fun and even therapeutic experience.
