  • What Happened to the Miscellany?

    January 5, 2006 at 10:18 am

    by Emily Schwing and Cameron Nordholm

    The Carleton MiscellanyIn its heyday, The Carleton Miscellany was a contemporary, avante-garde and unpretentious compilation of some of the best comtemporary American literature. For exactly 20 years, subscribers from all over the country--and world--flocked to its pages, consuming the work by some of the greatest authors to come out of the 20th century.

    But what happened? Why did the Miscellany disappear just as abruptly as it started? And where are the back issues today? One of Carleton’s favorite English professors, Mike Kowalewski of the Carleton English department, introduces us to what was once one of the Midwest’s most celebrated and sought-after private publications.

    Listen to the interview (MP3).

    Campus Sustainability

    by Karina Hill and Andrew Bartels

    Carleton College has not yet achieved the difficult task of becoming 100% sustainable, but that doesn’t mean that individuals, student organizations, academic departments, and college offices haven’t taken valuable steps toward this end. Many of these important initiatives have gone unnoticed because they fit so naturally into the campus environment.

    This slide show will highlight some of Carleton’s highly celebrated achievements in sustainability, as well as point out the lesser-publicized achievements of equal importance.

    Sayles Historyby Lauren Allinson, Megan Meyer and Gracie Young

    Carleton College's Student Center, Sayles Hill, is the hub of student life on campus. Not only does it house classrooms, study spaces, and newly equipped computer lab, it is a social space where students, faculty and staff can interact as well as work. Home to student organizations, the bookstore and snack bar, Sayles has always been an indispensable part of student life. Since its construction the building has evolved from its original athletic capacity into a unique social environment.

    The image “http://apps.carleton.edu/global_stock/photostock/162007.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

    Recently, a number of students on campus have been petitioning to change the college's mascot from the "Knights" to the "Penguins." In the midst of this heated debate, what we need most is a thorough, impartial, and thought-provoking comparison of the contenders...

  • Keep Jesus Home This Halloween

    Good CostumePlease get original this Halloween, urges Tim Blaha '06:

    "Creativity and effort are the key components of a successful Halloween costume. So, please don’t come as Jesus, it has been done far too many times. It has gotten so ridiculous that even a streaking “shark” (a.k.a. naked guy with Frisbee between buttocks) is more appealing to the eye than another Jesus representation."
