There is no place in the world quite like Carleton. I have had the most incredible college experience so far and I’m a little scared to leave, but I hope others will discover what Carleton has to offer. The one reflection I hear over and over about coming to Carleton is: "I came for the academics and stayed for the people." Although Carleton’s academics are at the heart of its existence, more than anything, Carleton is about the friendly, open-minded, and engaging people that make up its vibrant community. Every day my point of view is challenged and respected by professors in the classroom, peers in the hallways, and alums talking to me from and about the outside world.
