What do College Students Want…

…in Downtown Northfield?

We’ve heard, among other things, an all-night diner, a 400-person capacity night club, and bike racks…but we’re sure there’s much more.

The ACT (Acting in the Community Together) Center at Carleton College will be firing up their annual civic engagement series, entitled “Bursting the Bubble”, starting February 1st. The focus of the series is for students to find out how to become truly engaged citizens.

The NDDC celebrates this energy and inquisitiveness. We also think the civic engagement can, and should, be a two-way street. We’re delighted that the Carleton students are asking how they can better serve our community, we’d also like to ask them how our community can better serve the college students. Let’s figure out how to make this an on-going dialogue.
