Carleton College President Rob Oden opened the academic year today with the annual all first-year student Frisbee toss at the Bald Spot. Oden gave a short speech, comparing Carleton to other schools but emphasizing that, “The place where the Frisbee has reached its peak of enjoyment and fun is at Carleton.” He then counted to three and the air became filled with more than 400 Frisbees, each from the hand of one of Carleton’s new first-year students. New Student Week, Carleton’s program for welcoming new students and helping them to settle in, will continue until Sunday.
