Tuition increase to cover health care costs, financial aid

Fri, 04/07/2017 - 12:00pm

The cost of attending Carleton will increase for the 2017-18 school to $66,414 per year, up $2,343 from the 2016-17 school year. The higher costs are primarily due to faculty compensation increases and higher average financial aid.

History project preserves Mudd

“It’s hard to capture the moment, the community, the culture. It’s hard to capture what exactly it meant to stand in a space. But what we can do is preserve pieces of it so that people can come back later and at least imagine it or interpret it, in their own way.”

When freedom is too much

Fri, 04/07/2017 - 12:00pm

In the past few years we've seen the rise of many Internet features that we could never call democratic. The continued rise of clickbait, fake news, trolling, hate speech, and yes, even memes reflect our new Internet.

In defense of the Internet

Fri, 04/07/2017 - 12:00pm

This is why I find the derision of the Internet so bothersome. When people critique “millennials who are too obsessed with their phones,” what they are implicitly saying is that they don’t value, or possibly are even aware of, the progressiveness that comes from the Internet. Even seemingly dumb things like memes often serve as a way to express a lived experience shared by internet subgroups, and provide a space for oppressed people to establish a sense of solidarity.

Process to hire profs remains opaque

Fri, 04/07/2017 - 12:00am

"I think the college is pretty clear teaching is the most important one, but excellence in teaching can't make up for a slow start to research or a small quantity of research. The issue that I ran into is that it's not clear what that quantity is, where the line is."
