The curious economy, bodily autonomy, winter bonhomie, and more!
Students are back in Northfield for winter term and all the beauty of a January in Minnesota. Life isn’t all white and black, though; the faculty art exhibition opens this week, as does music professor Andrea Mazzariello’s interactive installation This, now. And congrats to the men’s basketball team! They’re off to an 11-1 start for the season. Whatever’s on your bucket list, we hope it includes staying in touch. Read on for more news from the Carleton community.
Winter bashes, Arb stashes, novel plots, bibs for tots, and more!
What a difference a month makes! Students have departed for winter break, and snow and chilly weather have settled in for the season. (Thanks to our campus grounds crew for keeping things clear.) Far from hibernating, though, the Carleton community continues its energetic ways; the women’s cross-country team set a record at the NCAA national tournament, and men’s basketball is off to a 4-0 start. Faculty and students have also received many recent grants and awards, including Ariel Alexander ’24 for pediatric oncology research, chemistry professor Dani Kohen via the Department of Energy (a Carleton first!), and students of the humanities. Read on for more ways to stay informed, energized, and connected.
The Work of the Board, A Race with a Sword, and More!
As the fall term races to a close, the campus community is keeping—and setting—the pace: Clara Mayfield ’23 earned another victory (along with a sword!), the women’s soccer and cross-country teams are both MIAC champs, and nine Carls are trying out for USA Ultimate’s U-24 National Team. There’s been time for reconnection and rejuvenation as well, including a successful Family and Homecoming Weekend that brought parents and alumni to campus and smiles to faces (check out the highlight video!). Read on for more news, more opportunities to keep in touch, and more reasons to smile.
Varsity Sports, Housing Support, The Old Farmstead, Global Sex Ed, and More!
You know what they say: Time flies like an arrow (and fruit flies like a banana). September is long gone, fall colors are making a rainbow of the campus canopy, the fall term is nearly half done, and plans are falling into place for dozens of student activity groups, like the Men of Color, shown above at the recent Student Involvement Fair. Varsity teams are racking up the accolades, including women’s tennis (with two All-Americans), football (off to a 4-0 start, with a special Homecoming weekend slated for next week), women’s soccer (unbeaten in the MIAC), and women’s golf (MIAC champions!). There’s more to come, with Family Weekend and weekly Convocations and dozens of events for alumni and the community at large. We hope you’ll stop by and stay in touch.
