1. Video Speaker's Corner Arrives On Campus
Starting this week, Carleton students are being asked to lend their voice to the University's new student recruitment video. Titled "This is my Carleton," the recruitment video will showcase what makes Canada's Capital University a great choice for prospective students. A major portion of the video will include unscripted comments from current students.

A video booth, similar to A-Channel or Much Music's Speaker's Corner, will be travelling the campus for three weeks, looking for current students to share their thoughts about what makes Carleton unique.

Be a part of the Carleton story. Tell us what you believe makes Carleton great! Share your thoughts about a special professor, your program, co-op placement or favourite campus activity...whatever you think prospective students would be interested in.

Today, the booth can be found in the University Centre (Cafeteria).

2. Important Notice: 2006 Capital Educators' Award
Due to some technical difficulties, online nominations submitted to the 2006 Capital Educators' Award Web site between January 12 and February 3 may have encountered problems. To ensure your nomination has been received in good order, please re-submit your nomination. The Capital Educators' Award committee apologizes for this inconvenience.

Carleton is home to many accomplished and successful educators. The Capital Educators' Awards is our opportunity to celebrate these talented individuals, and others from across Ottawa, and to recognize the significant impact they make on their students' lives.

The award is open to currently practising educators in an elementary, secondary or post-secondary publicly-funded educational institution and the nominee must currently (at the time of nomination) have classroom teaching responsibilities.

For more information and to nominate a Carleton professor, please visit
The deadline for nominations is February 23.

3. Penney and Charbonneau are Ravens Athletes of the Week
Mike Penney, men's swim team, and Valerie Charbonneau, women's ice hockey team, are the Carleton University Ravens-Ottawa Senators Athletes of the Week for the week ending February 12, 2006.

Penney, a fourth-year aerospace engineering student, earned three Ontario University Athletic (OUA) bronze medals at the 2006 OUA championships, held in Sudbury, Ontario. Penney also qualified for the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) national championship tournament, which will take place the weekend of February 24 to 26, by swimming the 400 individual medley in a time of 4:34.16.

Meanwhile, Charbonneau stopped 61 shots in a women's ice hockey doubleheader in Montreal on the weekend. The Sudbury native stopped Concordia University on a penalty shot in the first period of the Friday game and helped Carleton earn its first ever Quebec Students Sport Federation varsity team point by holding off the CIS fourth ranked McGill Martlets until the Martletts earned a 2-1 overtime victory. Congratulations to Penney and Charbonneau!
