Nearing the end of my time at Carleton College, I sought to find and document those events – in a confluence of very special conditions – that only occur in such a college environment. The removed, rural setting of the college and intensely academic though thoroughly eccentric student populous produces many of these events and one very special one occurs the Friday before the first exam at the end of the term.

Winter term especially, with its pent up academic frustration and incubated angst, requires a unique outlet through performance and song. This slideshow piece attempts to follow the happenings in the Carleton College Gould Library through the night, from improvisation performances deriding the school across the river, St. Olaf, to the acapella groups the school is famous for.
