  • I would like you to be aware of the attached plans which show some areas where construction fencing will be placed during week of May 13. These areas will be the access points into the tunnel system which will be used to remove old steam pipe and install new hot water pipe. The work is starting a bit earlier than usual construction season since we need the extended time to transition the entire east campus to hot water / geothermal and be back online by fall. The attached diagrams show the areas and details are:

    1) Area near Lyman Lakes, south end of Goodhue bridge - in the grass, no circulation reroutes required.

    2) Sidewalk directly adjacent to New Science Building (to LDC) - pedestrian and golf cart traffic routed around Concert Hall / Arena Theater

    3) Watson lawn - in the grass, no circulation detours required

    4) Mini Bald Spot - south sidewalk, pedestrians will be directed toward a mulch path in the Cassat / James lawn, golf carts will go around Mini Bald Spot west, north, east sidewalks.

    All tunnel access points will be covered with a temporary "dog house" which - in addition to the fence - will be secured when not in use. Please feel free to call or email me with any questions.

  • Tuesday, May 14th, 4:00-6:00 p.m., Varsity Room (off Burton Dining):  Bon Appétit would like to invite Carleton faculty and staff’s elementary school-aged children in grades K-5 to join us for a two hour workshop on featuring activities in healthy eating and cooking. In this fun and interactive program, Executive Chef Bryan Schouten and the Bon Appétit team will demonstrate how whole fruits and vegetables can be transformed into a healthy meal. You are welcome to accompany your child during the two-hour program, or you can leave him/her with us and use the time for your own productivity. If you choose to leave, we encourage you to join us for our “Healthy Kids Picnic” during the final 30 minutes of the program. By learning about the connection between what they eat and their ability to do what they enjoy, children will go home with a newfound power to make better choices for their health. This workshop is free but space is limited; please register at tinyurl.com/healthycarletonkids.
