On May 15, Carleton hosted its fifth annual Empty Bowls Project Fundraiser, raising $5,605 for the Northfield Area Food Shelf. The event featured homemade soup cooked in campus interest houses and served in handmade bowls created by ceramics students. For a suggested minimum donation of $10 per bowl, participants were able to enjoy a simple meal and keep their handmade bowl. Read more and see a photo slideshow from the event.

Carleton Senior Nick Smith celebrated the the last day of classes on June 3 by serenading the campus with his bagpipes from the rooftop of Burton Hall.
