Carleton College Visit Report by reesezpiecez103
Admissions Interview: No - They didn't offer one this week, unfortunately
Information Session: Yes - It was pretty helpful; the woman was very good and also very enthusiastic. I had already seen the video that was shown (it's on the Carleton website) but it was still a good refresher.
Campus Tour: Yes - My tour was pretty good; the tour guide did not speak English as her first language and was a tiny bit hard to understand, but for the most part was very informative and gave us a very thorough tour.
Overnight Visit: Yes - My host and her roommates were great; all of the students were really friendly; and I actually got to play IM flag football. Overall I had a fantastic time (the food was good, too).
Classroom Visit: No - Unfortunately my host had an early morning class, but I got to see her homework load...
Campus Visit Notes for Carleton College
Basically, I adore Carleton. My host and all of the other students were great, and as a prospective student-athlete, I was thrilled that many of the team members I met were not only friendly but also academically and athletically driven. Predictably, the Northfield students also definitely know how to have a good time...
