Music clubs team up to build community

Two very different campus clubs are working together to help build Carleton’s arts community.

The night will feature performances from members of both clubs, as well as other Carleton students. “I would say [it will be] a good mix of musical subcultures and more popular stuff,” said Amy Foster, a fifth-year child studies major and president of the Glee Club. “I don’t think anybody has to worry about going and it being super obscure.” The Metal Ravens and the Glee Club have worked together before.

Health and Fitness blog: Ottawa’s rad running trails

With warmer weather drawing people to the great outdoors, the spring and summer seasons are a great time to pick up a timeless fitness activity: running. And Ottawa offers a wide array of green spaces that make the trek worth it. These places have some great natural scenery to pass through as you sweat out those winter calories, so check them out on a solo run or a walk with friends!

One of my favourites is the Pink Lake trail, which is part trail, part boardwalk, and winds around Pink Lake with several lookouts and platforms along […]
