Good tour. Library impressed, dining room food was excellent, grounds were charming. Admissions office was small and welcoming.Baseball field was decent but stands were laughably small. [View Full Report]

The tour was very nice (although it was very cold). The vibe on campus was amazing... The feeling I got walking around campus is the reason that Carleton is now my top choice! [View Full Report]

The tour felt short to me (guess I was having fun!) but my tour guide was amazing. [View Full Report]

Our tour guide was nice enough but he did not show us many buildings and never asked us about ourselves. On the other hand we knew quite a bit about him by the end of the tour. [View Full Report]

Toured with a summer admissions fellow, a rising senior psych major. Lots of fun personal anecdotes and a beautiful campus in general. [View Full Report]

Couldn't make an official tour, so my host and her friends gave me one--it was great! [View Full Report]

Current student showed us the outside of most of the campus buildings but not too many interiors. Did not see athletic or recreation facilities or seminar rooms. [View Full Report]

Again, it was one on one. Tour guide was candid because of that. We talked a lot about the drinking policy as I saw a sign posted about a recent mtg to discuss "the drinking issue." [View Full Report]

Co-led by two students, and wonderful--just the right length, the usual factoids accompanied by that quirky Carleton humor. [View Full Report]

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. [View Full Report]

Tour guide was enthusiastic enough about Carleton. We walked into a random person's dorm room. People were generally friendly if approached. [View Full Report]

I went on a campus tour in July 2008. The tour guide was friendly and covered a lot, but it was par for the course as far as tours go. [View Full Report]

DISAPPOINTING. Bald and flat. The only pretty building is the Chapel, and even its interior is ugly. Theatre struck me by its tiny size. Bald spot is ugly. Calm and relaxed. So many bicycles. [View Full Report]

Great tour done by two students. Best part of the visit. They were articulate, clear, funny, friendly, and informative. [View Full Report]

Laid-back, students were natural, personal, and unscripted. [View Full Report]

Campus tour was pretty good. 2 students walked around filming us for a class. I thought that was pretty interesting. We basically just went around to all the buildings and went in a dorm room. [View Full Report]

The campus tour was standard but good. Went around most of the campus, but didn't go in the arboretum because it's too large. [View Full Report]

D and I toured separately, due to the timing of her interview. Our tour guide readily aknowledged this was his first tour and was helped out by other students who approached him, asked him how it was going and readily offered their own perpsectives. I [View Full Report]
