Reasons to attend and to not attend Carleton College

To Attend

  • “It’s a very collaborative You’ll never feel pressured to be better than someone else.”
  • “The professors are amazing. Everyone is there to help you and they care about you the most.”
  • “The community at Carleton is very supportive, and if you ever need help there’s probably a resource for you. There’s the Writing Center, Career Center, and Math Center. There are so many things.”
  • “If you want to go on to professional or graduate school, it’s a great place. People know Carleton and something like 90% of applicants get into medical school.”
  • “The amount of stuff that’s happening outside of class but still on campus. People work hard to make events happen within their clubs and departments. I have found this year to be kind of disheartening because I have been busy with academic work and haven’t been able to attend a bunch of things on a daily basis.”

To Not Attend

  • “It is challenging. If you’re not willing to put a significant amount of your time into school and want to have a huge nightlife party scene, it’s not the place for you.”
  • “If you can’t stand the cold then it’s a deal breaker.”
  • “If you’re particularly concerned about politics and don’t fit within the status quo of the students here.” [See The Carletonian article, “Carleton Republican club restarts following hiatus.”]
  • “If you don’t want to live in a small town or you’re looking for a bigger campus experience.”
  • “If you’re looking for a party school, this is not the place to go.”
