The Lens fills a specific need on campus and does not intended to compete with The Carletonian or other campus publications. To our knowledge, there does not exist another nationally distributed undergraduate magazine of politics and culture. Our bi-yearly publication also allows for a long, focused editorial process, giving writers, editors and designers the opportunity to plunge in-depth into long form journalism. This kind of editing and writing is unique for Carleton publications and we believe that Carleton students want to read and produce it.

Specifically, the Urban Adventure Club will provide students with adventures that simply aren't achievable in the town of Northfield. Meetings would involve meaningful discourse about the benefits of engaging with urban life and planning for trips (offered 1-2 per month). Only those who attend meetings would be eligible for trips.

The Lens is a nationally distributed magazine featuring high quality interdisciplinary writing. Our target audience is students and faculty at the undergraduate level.

Articles in The Lens attempt to burst the “Carleton bubble,” connecting our campus to the outside world.' The Lens fills a specific need on campus and does not intended to compete with The Carletonian or other campus publications. To our knowledge, there does not exist another nationally distributed undergraduate magazine of politics and culture. Our bi-yearly publication also allows for a long, focused editorial process, giving writers, editors and designers the opportunity to plunge in-depth into long form journalism. This kind of editing and writing is unique for Carleton publications and we believe that Carleton students want to read and produce it.

The Carleton Advocacy Network of Doulas (CAN-DO) Manage

Our History: With prior experience working as birth doulas and in abortion settings, Rinya Kamber and Sarina Chaiken (with the help of other resources) were able to train new doulas to physically, emotionally, and informationally support patients. The first abortion doula training was in spring of 2016. In fall of 2016, CAN­DO formed a partnership with Whole Woman’s Health of the Twin Cities and coordinated a second comprehensive doula training. By November 2016, CAN-­DO doulas were in clinic, supporting people during abortion procedures. Another training will be done in Winter 2016. Our Goals: 1) Abortion Doula Volunteers: Sustain and expand our pool of abortion doula volunteers who work at a Whole Woman's Health in the Twin Cities, providing direct support to patients choosing abortion. Everybody deserves support when vulnerable. Our goal is to ensure that all people choosing abortion will have equal access to quality doula support. We will provide care to anyone who seeks it, which may include people from Carleton, Northfield, and greater Minnesotan communities. 2) Community Awareness: Create a sustainable chain reaction of positive change by increasing the number of reproductive justice advocates in the community. The positive outcome of this effort is the creation of more accurately ­informed, trustworthy, approachable, and nonjudgmental people in the world. As students graduate, this knowledge can permeate into a wide array of settings. CAN-­DO will continue to educate all interested community members, including those who do not wish to become in-clinic doulas.

The Carleton Role Playing Association is a group dedicated to the promotion and active encouragement of role-playing games (RPGs) and role-playing activities at Carleton College. Our goal is to synthesize the creative, artistic, and technical skills of the RPG players and storytellers of all types on our campus to build an open, kindhearted, and safe community in which people can experiment with storytelling and mechanics, pick up an RPG for the first time, and have epic adventures with fantastic friends and characters. We hope to encourage creativity in all of our members, and increase participation within the umbrella hobby of Role Playing Games with unique gaming opportunities such as the CRPG and ERPL, and a cohesive effort to make campaign opportunities available to everyone interested. We currently run games in Pathfinder, Dungeons and Dragons(4th + 5th ed.), Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, Tavern Tales, FateCore, and Dark Heresy, and love learning new systems. CRPA is also in charge of the Experimental Role Playing Laboratory (ERPL), which is an event consisting of several one-shot sessions of roleplaying games. They can come from established systems, like D&D, Shadowrun, or Warhammer, or from brand new systems and brand new worlds created by ambitious gamers. It is the perfect opportunity to play in a game if you’ve never done so before, test a new world or system you’ve been perfecting, or simply enjoy playing without committing to a larger, more regular campaign. CRPA is also in charge of a new project called the CRPG, or Carleton Role Playing Game, which hopes to join gaming groups into a massive, inclusive role-playing endeavor occurring over the course of the year in a shared world.

Jiu-Jitsu and MMA class is a mixed martial arts class designed to train students in all aspects of mixed martial arts from stand up striking to the infamous techniques of combat Jiu-Jitsu. We specialize in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The final class is Krav Maga. Krav Maga is a strictly combat self-defense class with absolutely no ties to sport fighting. It's purpose is to defend ones self in the most perilous real world scenarios against attackers seeking to harm you or someone you are with. Training is realistic and takes into account crime statistics, real world scenarios and modern weapons (knives, guns, batons, rifles). It is combat system tested in combat the world over and is rapidly becoming the dominant system for law enforcement, military and body guards. It's practice is completely independent from size and strength and it is designed as one system for men and women. It is simple and effective in preparing students for the worst case scenario.

We hope to encourage creativity in all of our members, and increase participation within the umbrella hobby of Role Playing Games with unique gaming opportunities such as the CRPG and ERPL, and a cohesive effort to make campaign opportunities available to everyone interested. We currently run games in Pathfinder, Dungeons and Dragons(4th + 5th ed.), Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, Tavern Tales, FateCore, and Dark Heresy, and love learning new systems. CRPA is also in charge of the Experimental Role Playing Laboratory (ERPL), which is an event consisting of several one-shot sessions of roleplaying games. They can come from established systems, like D&D, Shadowrun, or Warhammer, or from brand new systems and brand new worlds created by ambitious gamers. It is the perfect opportunity to play in a game if you’ve never done so before, test a new world or system you’ve been perfecting, or simply enjoy playing without committing to a larger, more regular campaign. CRPA is also in charge of a new project called the CRPG, or Carleton Role Playing Game, which hopes to join gaming groups into a massive, inclusive role-playing endeavor occurring over the course of the year in a shared world.

We are interested in broadening a Carleton Student's college experience by facilitating opportunities for students to experience museums, photography in the city, coffee roasters, festivals, biking around the chain of lakes, and more. We all have a passion for being in a city environment, and would like to further capitalize on the fact that Carleton is just 40 minutes from the Twin Cities. Specifically, the Urban Adventure Club will provide students with adventures that simply aren't achievable in the town of Northfield. Meetings would involve meaningful discourse about the benefits of engaging with urban life and planning for trips (offered 1-2 per month). Only those who attend meetings would be eligible for trips. Individual group members would propose ideas for trips during the first week of each term. The trip schedule will be determined by the second week of each term. An interest meeting was held on Thursday, March 29th; 35 students were in physical attendance (I have a sign-in sheet if needed). Additionally, 120 students ranging from Freshman-Senior class standings are in the google group. 6 students have reached out to me about a desire to be involved in club leadership. Many students interested are campus drivers (at the meeting 5/35 were alone), and many more are willing to become campus drivers. This is a club with a great deal of momentum, full of very passionate people who share a common interest in urban culture.
