The Canadian Football League (CFL) Combine is the signature event leading up to the CFL Draft for the nation’s best prospects to show what they can bring to any of the league’s nine teams.

Weight scales have been put in the men’s and women’s changerooms at Carleton’s Athletics Centre after backlash from the removal of the scale earlier this month, according to Beth Gorham, manager of public affairs at Carleton.  Gorham said in a statement that the scale was originally removed because it was not working properly, but it had been part of a plan to push other health metrics than just weight, even before the scale’s malfunction. “People in Athletics think that it is a very important message to send that health overall has to do with more than just weight,” Gorham said. The original scale story gained a considerable amount of attention from North American news organizations over the past few weeks, […]

Science student societies evicted from office space

Five of Carleton’s science societies have been evicted from their offices in the Herzberg Laboratories to make room for neuroscience faculty members. This decision comes as a direct result of the current renovations to the Life Sciences Research Building—the building that serves as the neuroscience department’s research and office space. The evicted societies are the Carleton Student Science Society, the Physics Society, the Math Society, the Earth Science Society, and the Neuroscience Society. “These societies are vital to the experiences of the students they represent, and the loss of their office space will significantly impact their ability to plan and carry out their programming,” said Justin Bergamini, vice-president (operations) of the Carleton Academic Student Government (CASG), in an official statement.
