Opting out of scrumptious Sodexho meals, the comrades of Culinary House cook their own. It is their mission to broaden Carls’ culinary experience beyond greasy snack bar goods and ramen noodles. Carleton’s Slow Food Convivium also has a mission: to encourage people to slow down and enjoy their food instead of gobbling it on the run. Clearly, this was house-to-group match made in heaven. The two groups finally locked tongs at the first annual Iron Chef Carleton, a cooking contest extravaganza designed to let students show off their culinary chops.

We love to hate them: Glorpy salad dressing, mystery meat, dried-out rice stuck to the serving bowl. If there’s one thing about Carleton that binds us together, it’s either Frisbee or griping about the taste of Sodexho food (or lack thereof).
So when the dining hall contract came up for renewal, it generated plenty of student interest. The Facebook group devoted to the contract renewal process, Carls for Delicious Dining, had 248 members as of October 11. That’s approximately 14% of the student body! About thirty students attended the Dining Hall Public Forum on Wednesday.

So I show up to Bell Field as it radiates with hundreds of glowsticks. The first thing I want to know when I get to the door is, How this can possibly be the 88th annual? Doesn't that mean it would have started in 1919? At Carleton, it's conceivable, but it doesn't seem like superheroes were too widespread back then.
Peggy at the Superhero/Villain Sign-Up Table helps me. The year numbers are measured in "intergalactic time warp units" that tend to produce a different number every year, not always going up. "It makes sense in their universe." She can tell me, though, that this is the convention's fifth year on campus.

It can take years to bring a play to a Broadway stage. But in the 24-Hour Show put on by Carleton's Experimental Theater Board, students are expected to write, rehearse, and perform a play all in a single day--24 hours of sheer madness.

Toff, Carleton's campus cat, turned ten on Monday. His birthday was celebrated by birthday cake in the dining halls and a special display in the bookstore of "Toff's List," recommended reading for anybody who is a fan of Toff. They included such titles as Life is Meals by James & Kay Salter, and Dump Him, Marry the Cat, by Andrea Donner. Postcards of him reclining next to Schiller were also available for 60 cents.
From the staff of Shout, we all wish you a happy birthday, Toff!
