Freshman Frisbee Toss
This ceremony is the Official Beginning of One's Four Years at Carleton. All freshmen are given free Frisbees, line up along the edge of the Bald Spot, listen to a stirring speech by the college president, and then toss their Frisbees into the center of the Bald Spot. From then on, they are Carleton students.
Freshman Frisbee Toss takes place at The Bald Spot
The Bald Spot may be treeless, but it's rarely empty. This grassy expanse in the middle of campus sees a constant stream of activity: Frisbee games, al fresco studying and picnics in spring, broomball in winter, huge campus gatherings for Commencement and Reunion.
