Carleton College Visit Report by nickknack
Information Session: Yes - Trite, off-topic, dreary. Uninformative video followed by tedious, confusing lecture disguised as Q&A.
Campus Tour: Yes - Laid-back, students were natural, personal, and unscripted.
Classroom Visit: Yes - Anthropology 101 was entertaining, but apparently not representative of the regular difficulty of Carleton classes.
Campus Visit Notes for Carleton College
45 minute drive from Minneapolis. Lots of near-campus on street parking. Info session not worthwhile, but I recommend a visit to the admissions office. The campus itself is picturesque and quintessentially Midwestern. Students and faculty were approachable, laid-back, and engaging. If you're visiting in the winter, please be cautious and bring a coat; Minnesota winters are beautiful but cold days are not to be trifled with.
