Carleton’s Second Wind Turbine Plans Featured in Star Tribune23 February 2009
Carleton’s plans for installing a second wind turbine was featured in the Monday, Feb. 23 edition of the Star Tribune. The article looks at Carleton and St. Olaf’s wind turbines, which are identical, and wonders in a fun way if there is a “green rivalry” between the two Northfield schools. It’s not a competition, said Chris Erickson ’08, Carleton ENTS educational associate, and others at both schools.

Hesterberg ’11 Quoted in Star Tribune Story on Textbooks29 December 2008
Carleton sophomore Michelle Hesterberg was quoted in a Star Tribune article that examined what colleges and univerisities (and its students) are doing to fight rising text book costs.
