Carleton convocations are for everyone—open to the public and free of charge. Join us for a thought-provoking series of winter term convocations in the Skinner Memorial Chapel weekly, January 9 through February 27. We kick off the term with science historian and psychologist Michael Shermer, who examines "why people believe weird things." Shermer is the founding publisher of Skeptic magazine, the executive director of the Skeptics Society, a monthly columnist for Scientific American, and a prolific author.
See the Convocation website here for the full schedule and further information.

Carleton College will host two important annual events in the coming weeks that will have a major impact on its neighbors. The College’s 139th Commencement will take place on Saturday, June 15, in a ceremony beginning at 9:30 a.m. on the Bald Spot, the lawn west of Hulings Hall on the Carleton campus. Carleton’s alumni reunion activities will be held June 20-23. The event hosts nearly 2,000 Carleton alumni and features a wide variety of events.
Carleton is pleased to announce an exciting partnership with neighboring St. Olaf College and the Northfield Downtown Development Corporation (NDDC). In conjunction with the NDDC's College-Community Collaboration Committee, plans are now in place to launch and support a multi-year, interdisciplinary series of college-community projects.
This Friday, the College will be working on a video project to document the move of various faculty and staff members to the Weitz Center for Creativity. This special project will block off College Street from 1st Street to 3rd Street from 1:30-3:30 p.m. and will include a gathering of participants on the Bald Spot during the afternoon as well.
