MPIRG held its annual Cardboard Box City last Friday, where Carleton students built cardboard box homes and slept out in them all night to raise awareness about homelessness in Minnesota. They got creative with their boxes, constructing them in a variety of shapes and sizes and painting them with wacky designs. After the box building, a representative from Homeless against Homelessness gave a talk. The builder of the most creative cardboard home also won a seventy-five dollar prize.
