Hannah Schmidt leading the Carleton ski team

Hannah Schmidt is a third-year criminology student and member of the Carleton alpine ski team, who has now found herself as the team captain and the club’s president. Schmidt has taken a long, complicated path to Carleton. Navigating the ups and downs of athletic life, she has taken on the role of running the ski team because of her love of the team. “I keep doing it because I just love it, I can’t stop,” she said when asked about what has kept her involved with the sport after so many quit post-high school. Schmidt is also a relative outsider to the world of Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec (RSEQ) ski racing—without a big team to back her, she […]

Men’s hockey splits opening weekend games in overtime

The Carleton Ravens men’s hockey team split their first two games of the season this weekend coming away with one overtime win against the University of Ottawa (U of O) Gee-Gees on Oct. 12 and one overtime loss at the hands of the McGill Redmen on Oct. 14. Carleton, who plays in the fearsome Ontario University Athletics  (OUA) East Division, were expected to have a difficult start as the season opened against the young Gee-Gees and the always contending Redmen. The Ravens are coming off a disappointing 2016-17 season with a first-round playoff exit and the departure of many veteran players. This year marks the U of O’s second season back after the suspension of the men’s hockey program in […]

McGill professor teaches Black Canadian history at Harvard

An art history professor at McGill University is taking her research on Canada’s slave history to Harvard University for the 2017-18 academic year as the William Lyon Mackenzie King visiting professor for Canadian Studies.

In an email, Nelson said that throughout her career she focused on the representation of Black subjects in historical western art, mainly female subjects. “Since I look at artwork produced in the 18th and 19th-centuries, that has meant that I was dealing with the broader context of Transatlantic Slavery […]

Letter: Carleton should do away with CFS

The Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) is an organization plagued with corruption, inefficacy, and gross mismanagement of student funds. It is time for Carleton to defund the CFS. Our money has been wasted for long enough. Right now, Carleton students pay $389,000 per year to the CFS. This works out to just over $16 per student. What do we—the students unwillingly funding the CFS—get in return? We receive a few posters, buttons, and t-shirts promoting different causes. That’s it. While the CFS does advocate for minority rights and lower tuition, it does so with incredible inefficiency and lack of results. Carleton could easily get far more minority rights materials for a fraction of the $389,000 price tag. And last time […]
