Campus Visit Notes for Carleton College


Visit Description:

Everything about Carleton seemed wonderful. The students seemed so fun and smart and down-to-earth. If I could go back in time and do college all over again, I'd want to go to Carleton.

Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:

I can't think of the name of the hotel...it was not far from campus at all...maybe the Country Inn?? It was nice enough and certainly convenient.

Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:

We ate at The Tavern and I highly recommend it. We also heard that the Indian restaurant (can't remember the name of that either) is great, so we'll try that next time.
