Carleton's administrative leadership team has issued an update to the flood recovery process. Allen and Prentice Houses are now available and will be occupied by students during winter term. West Gym is also now available, with the basketball and swimming teams resuming practices in those spaces. College officials have met with federal officials as well in regards to possible governmental funds for flood recovery, and bids are out for restorative work to Laird Stadium.

Tim has decided to retire in March 2011. Let’s face it, the Carleton Geology Department will never be the same.
To celebrate ‘All Things Tim’, and to show our collective appreciation for his amazing career and service to the College and the Department, we are already planning events: a reception in Mudd during the 2010-11 Academic Year, an event of some sort during Reunion Weekend 2011, and hopefully a big bash here on campus timed to coincide with the October 2011 GSA National Meeting in Minneapolis. So, keep these dates in mind, and start showering Tim with your emails, cards, phone calls, hugs and casseroles!
Expect more announcements, dates, and requests (for reminiscences) in the fall.
