While talking about the Minnesota weather from the perspective of a San Diegan, Carly brings you to Carleton's favorite rectangular grass/ice patch: the Bald Spot. During New Student Week (the annual welcome orientation for first year students), everyone receives a shiny new Carleton frisbee and writes their name on it. Then, they stand around the perimeter of the Bald Spot and throw their frisbee toward a flag in the center, all at once. The person whose frisbee is closest to the flag wins pizza for their dorm floor! After, everyone retrieves a random frisbee, and by the end of the week they must find the owner of the frisbee and return it. This is just one of Carleton's many memorable traditions!
