Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2006

Carleton was a fantastic place to get an undergraduate degree. The small class sizes, the flexibility of the majors, and outstanding faculty encouraged me to pursue graduate school. I am now a professor at a liberal arts school as a result.

College is an amazing time of growth and learning. I would not be the person I am today if I had not had the experiences and struggles which challenged me in college. I can think of no better college for an intellectually curious person than Carleton College.

The Carleton community is so warm and inclusive--and it definitely doesn't disappear when you graduate. I have continued to find wonderful friends in various cities from Carleton since graduating, including people I never met during undergrad.

Carleton is a great school for those looking for a small-school environment. You won't be just a number, like you might be at some state schools. Overall, the professors are high quality and all of the professors I had have been easy to contact or meet with. Housing is also pretty decent, obviously some situations are better than others, but don't come here if you plan on living off campus - you don't have the option until senior year, and even then it's only a small percentage (which the administration has been aiming to cut entirely). The administration has for the most part done a good job, though they leave much to be desired with regards to communicating with students and taking student opinions into account. Despite these shortcomings, the students and classes are amazing enough to make up for the occasional frustrations. You will be challenged, you'll have to work hard, but so will everyone around you, which makes for quite the bonding experience. If I went back four years and got to pick a college again, I'd still pick Carleton.

I loved Carleton. It was very challenging, yet supportive. It was fun to learn and grow there.

Degree: Chemistry

I loved Carleton. I can't wait to go back for my 5 year reunion next summer. I made a lot of friends there that are still some of my best friends, and I met my now husband there. The people, students and teachers, at Carleton are wonderful and make it a unique place.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2005

I was a first generation college student and didn't know how to take advantage of the resources of my college. Additionally, coming from a low socio-economic background was challenging with all the children of affluent people; they were all taking unpaid internships in D.C. while I worked during school and full-time during breaks. I would also have preferred to attend an institution with a much higher LGBT population. But Carleton is great, even if it is in the Midwest.
