At 11:25 p.m., Security responded to a motion alarm at the Arts Union. Nothing was found…but the whispering echoes of children’s laughter could be heard in the hallways ….Yep! You guessed it ….Ghosts!
Chances are, your sex-ed experience in high school wasn’t all you wanted it to be. Some schools are supporting more comprehensive programs these days, but the majority still primarily feature slides of various sexually transmitted infections and base a healthy sexual life on abstinence until marriage.
At Carleton, the Gender and Sexuality Center (GSC) sponsors a comprehensive sexuality education program for students based on the Our Whole Lives (OWL) curriculum.
It is Sunday night, around eleven or eleven thirty, and the short walk from Davis Hall to the library seems to take forever, weighted down as I am with a bag full of books. Preoccupied with dread of those books I do not at first realize what I am hearing. Crows. Wait…Crows? There throaty cries sound strange and unfamiliar in the darkness and I look up. My eyes search the darkness until, suddenly, I see it; the silent cause of all that ruckus, flying out of the pine trees that line the driveway behind Leighton. “Owl!” I yell. The people on the sidewalk turn to see what I am pointing at and exclaim in astonishment and excitement.
