Visiting campus is the best way to discover whether Carleton is the right fit for you. Although you can get a feel for Carleton's personality in our Explore section, there's no substitute for walking around campus, talking to students, and sitting in on real classes.  We encourage you to arrange a visit that works with your schedule.
