    Student Bloggers Share Scholar Program Experiences

    Carleton College has recently started sponsoring scholar programs for its students to have off-campus experiences during the College’s winter-term break during the month of December. This past month, Carleton held a trio of programs: a public policy program based in Washington, D.C., a business/finance experience in New York City, and finally a creative arts encounter in New York City. This marks the third school year Carleton has sponsored such experiences for its students. Student bloggers Aaron Kaufman ’09 (creative arts) and Alex Sciuto ’09 (public policy) recently posted some thoughts and reflections on their experiences.

    Blanchard Works to Expand Garden, Sustainability at Carleton

    Katie Blanchard, a rising Carleton senior, remained on her college campus this summer rather than working at an internship or other summer job. While she’s hardly alone in this experience, Blanchard can literally eat the fruits (or vegetables) of her labor at the end of each day, as the Petoskey, Mich., native has been working not in a laboratory researching or in the library digging through old texts, but cultivating and expanding the Carleton garden. The garden, located on the northeastern edge of campus and north of the Recreation Center, is only one of many new sustainability projects the College has undertaken in the past school year.

    2008 OCS Photo Contest Winners Announced

    When Carleton students return to campus after studying, volunteering, or interning abroad, they bring with them a wealth of new ideas and perspectives, contributing to the rich intellectual climate and adding small but essential drops to the bucket of intercultural understanding. Photography is a unique tool for sharing their experiences because it provides viewers with an immediate glimpse of a different world. The images produced by the 2008 Off-Campus Studies photo contest winners span tradition and modernity, are both serene and provoking, and constitute manifestations of a different perspective.

    Try and Try Again: Carleton Women’s Rugby Finishes Second Undefeated Season, Wins Regional Tournament

    Of the forty-two girls on the roster for the Carleton Women’s Rugby Football Club, almost all of them awoke at 5 a.m. on Saturday, April 26, to high winds and a building snowstorm—anticipating the worst at their upcoming tournament. Forward co-captain Mallory Hoffman ’08 (Minnetonka, Minn.) says she had “no doubts whatsoever,” but for most of the team, winning the regional All-Saints Tournament in St. Cloud, Minn. was an unbelievable, thrilling victory.
