Carroll After Dark 

For many students, college life is a 24/7 affair. For Pioneers, it’s no different. It is an around-the-clock existence, with late nights in the Learning Commons followed by early morning breakfasts in the Campus Center, or Friday night bingo games and crack-of-dawn practices on Schneider Stadium’s damp turf.

Classrooms may sit empty overnight, but a university never really closes. Everywhere, there are people toiling to keep the place moving, to ready it for the next day of learning. There are parking lots to patrol, lights to replace, breakfasts to prepare, books to shelve—numerous tasks, large and small, that have to happen so that the next morning’s Pioneers can get down to the work of transforming themselves. Photographer Kyle Zehr spent a few late nights and early mornings to document Carroll after dark.
