Ben Bedore '13 says:Everything ebbs and flows at Carleton. Work, exams, weekend activities: sometimes they all come at once, and sometimes things are more quiet around here. But regardless of how much work you have or how full your social calendar is, life at Carleton is always driven by individual interests and passions.
Scott Carpenter (faculty) says:Life outside the classroom is as important as life inside it. Students find the three other people in the world who like the same music they do; they learn to bake; they test their limits; they discover snow. Oh, and they do a LOT of homework.
Life at Carleton is busy busy busy! I have come to understand that a unique characteristic of the Carleton life is perpetually wishing for a few more hours in a day. It's a constant balancing act of classes, work, friends, athletics, extracurriculars and adventure.
