I’m Jordan Palacios from Chicago. I am a rising sophomore and think I’ll be majoring in Psychology. I am Mexican and Puerto Rican. I really love food-like a lot. I like cooking it, I like going to restaurants and trying it, I even like researching it. Being a city boy I try to get the most out of a place. I like to travel and immerse myself in the culture of new places. I’ve been to Europe, Mexico, and some cities in the US. Carleton gives me endless opportunities to learn about different cultures through organizations and study abroad opportunities.
What are the academics at Carleton?
The academics at Carleton are tough. If you could manage to get in, however, the workload is manageable. Being at such a small campus makes resources accessible. Professors are really easy to talk to. They are always more than happy to help out. The ten week terms makes the work seem continuous and progressively getting harder.
How does one manage time at Carleton?
Time management is something you learn after the first term. There are a lot of things like organizations, campus events, and social events going on all the time, and it is more than possible to attend everything you want to attend as long as you manage your time. I like to set a block of time aside for studying and work. I also have to separate myself from my room and friends for a small amount of time. Time management is not too hard.
