S, who tries hard not to be impressed by things and is interested in a more urban setting, was quietly impressed. Only downer was the BB field, which was out of the way and underwhelming. [View Full Report]

After I visited, I pretty much stopped looking at other schools. Carleton and I were a great fit on paper, but the campus visit really sold me on Carleton's unique community and gorgeous campus. [View Full Report]

There was no place where you could stand and see all the buildings. Difficult to get a sense of the overall campus. A great deal of renovation was going on. [View Full Report]

While Carleton's campus is not the prettiest I've seen, it's definitely aesthetically pleasing and coherently designed. [View Full Report]

Northfield as a whole feels very safe; my host actually left her purse in the library ("the Libe") while we went for coffee and it was fine. [View Full Report]

Campus is overall nice and in a great location. Students are interesting people who are all so different form each other but seem to get along quite well. [View Full Report]

A nice place, very busy. Aesthetically-appealing for me, though I'm not sure if I would fit into the campus crowd -- some absurdly nerdy, some nervously quiet. [View Full Report]

I think it's pretty apparent that I'm head over heels for this school... the campus is gorgeous, the people are friendly, the food is good, and the academics are top-notch. [View Full Report]

I have no idea. My parents hated it, so I'm seriously confused. Students were nice and smart, but the facilities were so behind! [View Full Report]

I thought it was an amazing place. The people are nice, the academics were very impressive and the students very engaged. It is a pretty place too. Their facilities were not bad either. [View Full Report]

It was great. I was totally impressed during the tour. I loved the nature feel it had and I LOVED the ducks. They made it feel very livable, whereas some college campuses look like prisons! Beautiful. [View Full Report]

Carleton has its own character. It is probably not for everyone, but the kids we met clearly loved it and cannot imagine being anywhere else. I think D could be very happy there. [View Full Report]
