      Klontz Wins 5 Events, Qualifies Twice for Nationals at UST Conference Invite

      Senior All-American Erik Klontz ‘13 won three individual events and two relays at the St. Thomas Conference Invitational. He wasn’t simply victorious in the 50-yard freestyle, though, he won by nearly a full second and did so in NCAA Championships automatic qualifying time of 20.10.

      Men’s Tennis Open Season With 2-1 Weekend

      Alex Chin ‘13 returned to the lineup and won three singles matches and a pair of doubles contests as the Carleton College men’s tennis team went 2-1 during the opening weekend of play for the indoor season.

      Women’s Basketball Tops St. Olaf

      Sometimes, it’s all about momentum. That certainly proved to be the case in Monday’s rivalry game between the Carleton College women’s basketball team and their cross-town foes from St. Olaf College. Sophomore Skylar Tsutsui scored a game-high 18 points as the Knights pulled away from the Oles for a 66-47 triumph.

    • Scott Theisen ‘13

      Men’s Basketball Defeats Augsburg for Third Straight Win

      Despite his eight assists and seven rebounds, it was senior Scott Theisen’s nine points that will be remembered most out of  everything in Wednesday’s game. Those tallies placed him in elite company as just the 27th member of the Carleton 1,000-point club as the Knights defeated Augsburg College 63-58 to move into sole possession of fourth place in the MIAC standings.

      The Peace Corps at Carleton: A Letter from John Kline

      I would like to congratulate Carleton College for being ranked eighth nationally among small colleges in the number of graduates serving in the Peace Corps. The latest rankings clearly reflect the high caliber of alumni from Carleton as well as St. Olaf, which was ranked second.


      Staying Alive During Flu Season

      By now, you’re probably sick (pun intended) of hearing about how to avoid catching whatever bug is currently infecting every student on campus. If you’re not licking the ground or blowing your nose with your flu-infected roommate’s used tissues that you picked out of his trash can, you’re probably just as likely as the next fellow to catch whatever is being passed around the student body.

      Jony Ive, Richard Feynman, and Michel Foucault Walk Into a Bar

      So why would Ive, Feynman, and Foucault go into a theoretical bar?  Obviously to fulfill my need to explain the differences between methodology, field, and discipline. Ive is the designer, Feynman the Physicist, and Foucault the humanist.

      The Overachiever Gradient

      Like most Carleton students—or at least the formidable section of the Carleton population who are both stress-prone and ashamed of every piece of work they miss—I start to come within sight of a crossroads around sixth week.

      Science, Religion, and Debating the Undebatable

      What atheists should look to is not the particulars of the argument on God, but rather that they are seeing it as an argument in the first place. What atheists need is not an education in religion and spirituality, but a lesson in how to view religion as a dynamic force of livelihood rather than as an outdated vehicle for violence and coercion as they so often do.

      Food for Thought

      Oftentimes both Bon Appetit and the Wellness center get questions about how sick students might attain meals for the day. Here is what Bon Appetit and the Student Health and Counseling Center had to say about it.

    • Karst formations


      Although the Cowling Arboretum does not exhibit any karst topography, much of Southern Minnesota does. Karst is a geological feature formed by the dissolution of soluble bedrock such as carbonates like limestone and dolostone.
