With another term in session, it means the airwaves of KRLX, the school's student-run radio station, are no longer silent.
The station runs 24 hours a day from the beginning to the end of every term, with students dictating the content every hour.
"You get to hear all sorts of different music that represents the Carleton community," said DJ Michelle Abecasis.
Northfield and the surrounding areas can listen to KRLX at 88.1FM. You can also listen online at KRLX.org.
"I can share my music with everyone," said DJ Richard Tovar. "A lot of people don't know the music I listen to so it's great to expand people's horizons."
