Hazing at Carleton College

Hazing from Carleton College's past - students being thrown in the air, men in dresses, and of course, paddling.

While hazing was fairly common in the 19th century and 1st half of the 20th century, the practice at Carleton generally did not last beyond the 1960's.

See our Digital Collections for more images like this from Carleton's history.
