Men’s soccer extends win streak to six

The men’s soccer team recorded a pair of wins at home against the Queen’s Gaels and the Royal Military College (RMC) Paladins. The Carleton Ravens beat the Gaels 2-0 on Oct. 7, and then beat the Paladins 5-0 the following day. Against Queen’s on Oct. 7, Ravens forward Gabriel Bitar put Carleton on the board seven minutes into the game when his shot sailed into the net past the Gaels goaltender Alex Jones. This was the only goal in the first half as Carleton kept the offensive pressure up, but weren’t able to capitalize on any of the opportunities they created. Starting off the second half in a similar  manner as the first, Bitar was able to score his second […]

Letter: Men shouldn’t be promoting rape culture

Re: “‘Fuck safe space shirts’ prompt apology, Sept. 11-17 Over the past few weeks there has been considerable attention put on Carleton after students were photographed wearing shirts saying “Fuck Safe Space.” A lot of the backlash against these students came because they were seen as contributing to rape culture.

I had recommended to a first-year student that he should take gender studies at some point during his degree. His immediate […]

Editorial: CU can’t afford to fall behind on credit transfers

Last week, seven Ontario universities announced a new program that will let students transfer any first-year general arts and sciences courses, and Carleton wasn’t one of them. McMaster, Waterloo, U of T, Guelph, UOttawa, Western and Queen’s have all agreed on common standards, opening up the chance for their students to switch schools, move back home, or work during the summer without wasting time and money.

Others change their program, and want to go to a school that specializes in what they want to study. Not being a part of the program could harm Carleton’s recruitment levels too. […]
