SUMO brings array of options in upcoming term: Student film organization proves Hollywood has not “gone bad”
Now, I could write on and on about why SUMO has an awesome lineup this term (starting this weekend with “The Lives of Others,” continuing midterm break with the great new 3:10 to Yuma, and then two weeks later with “Into the Wild” and “Michael Clayton,” and then 9th weekend hitting really hard with Ang Lee’s “Lust, Caution,” and, fittingly, ending with “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.” Man, that’s pretty great. No doubt about that) but instead I wanted to take a look at – even though it seems weird to say this – what a great year 2007 was for Hollywood.

For a college that prides itself so much on its sustainability and environmental concern, Carleton took quite a blow last year when it received a “C+” on the first annual College Sustainability Report Card, a report issued by the Sustainable Endowments Institute. Much to Carleton environmental advocates’ pleasure, the college managed a massive improvement this year, earning an “A-” on this year’s report.
