Campus Visit Notes for Carleton College


Visit Description:

I wasn't interested in going to Carleton, my mother made me visit. I ended up deciding to apply, and listing it in my top 4. The campus is really nice, self-contained, and has a nice feeling to it.The kids are friendly and not stuck up. The food was decent and the kids I met-except my host-were great. The workload is heavy but the students know they're getting a great education.

Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:

My mom stayed in Northfield at the Archer House
