    Dear Colleagues,

    Shortly before winter break, I had dinner with Carleton’s KRLX board of directors.   I reported that Sweet Honey in the Rock was coming to Carleton in January and that I hoped the students would attend. I even pulled out my iPhone and played one of my favorite songs, "Wade in the Water."

    The board asked me what was on my playlist.  I clicked on my phone's Pandora app and shared with them (yes, I still have Pandora…it’s free) my favorite stations.

    Jez Bigornia ’20 shares highlights from his Winter Break Externship experience.

    I applied to be a theater management extern for The Acting Company (also known as the Group I Acting Company) so I’d have the opportunity to experience theater outside of academia in a professional setting — no better place to experience and learn than in New York City!

  • International Brunch

    The Dacie Moses House could be described as one of the most treasured places on campus.  Designed to be a “home away from home” for Carls, Dacie Moses (also famously known as the ‘cookie house’) is a place where one can always find free cookies, a welcoming environment, and lively conversation during their Sunday brunches.  The house is open to all students not just for baking, but also to cook food, sing a capella, and allow student cultural groups to share their food and heritage. One of the lesser-known stories about Dacie Moses was her love of international students.  Dacie worked at Carleton College for many years in the Treasurer’s Office and was an advocate for many of the international students, assisting them with delayed payments and helping to make sure that they found a home at Carleton College.

  • Sleep

    The Office of Health Promotion (OHP) has hit the bigtime with recent acknowledgement in the New York Times. The focus? Sleep, and how to ensure Carleton students have the support and tools they need to get enough of it.
