Stream of Consciousness is an annual publication by the Alliance for Aquatic Resource Monitoring (ALLARM) written, edited, and put together by ALLARM student staff and administrators, featuring articles on current water issues, senior reflections, and the year in review. Stream of Consciousnessness is published thanks to the generous support of the Charles Merrill Kurtz Fund, established by Betty Puzak in memory of her father Charles M. Kurtz, Dickinson class of 1907.
