The Carleton Literary Association Paper (CLAP) is a weekly student publication distributed Fridays during convocation hour. It accepts a wide variety of articles, opinion pieces, fiction, and poetry, much of it satirical. For reasons unknown, it is often distributed by a student dressed in a dinosaur costume. Or a papier mache dinosaur.
