    At a time when most Carleton students are focused on the approaching end of the academic year, they received a poignant reminder last week of events currently taking place in the Darfur region of Sudan. The victims of the genocide being perpetrated in Darfur, people who often seem worlds away in the comfortable, close-knit environment of Carleton, were brought close to the hearts of many with a series of events intended to raise awareness of the genocide and funds for relief organizations. Hosted by the group Students Taking Action Now: Darfur (STAND), the events drew hundreds of concerned students and raised over $1,500 for the cause.

After graduating, they returned to the country on Fulbright scholarships and are currently continuing their studies of Mali at Cambridge University.
