  • After finals end, take time to reflect on this term

    In the midst of the hustle and bustle of life at Carleton, it sometimes is difficult for one to stop and think about what a particular event means.One may pause and read the newspaper at breakfast or lunch, but there is always the next exam or paper after that. There is never time to stop completely to think, because the Carleton life does not afford such a luxury.

  • A large increase in student activity fee

    This past Monday night, the CSA Senate voted to set the Student Activity Fee for the 2009-2010 academic year, as is done every year around this time. There are however, some changes that I feel that you should know about before you receive your tuition statement for next year.

  • Dogmatism and the election

    It wasn’t Obama’s being elected that I was unhappy with nor was it the man himself. It was what I perceived as the Carleton community’s explicit assumption that everyone on campus was a supporter of Obama.

  • Carleton students show lack of commitment to sustainable Carleton

    As a 5th year intern then, sandwiched between being a student and a staff, the great surprise for me thus far this year has been seeing the far greater seriousness about and energy toward the issue of environmental sustainability from the faculty and staff. I am not sure why there is not quite the same level of practicing commitment among students.

  • In support of welfare: a response to the Carleton Observer

    Reid’s maxim of “if a person is unable to care for a child, they should not bring one into the world” is not that simple.
