Visiting Carleton

  • Emily Balczewski '16
    When I visited during Admitted Students Weekend, I audited a 300-level Computer Science Course, with zero previous Computer Science experience. By the end of the lecture, I felt like I had a deep understanding of the material...and had a blast while learning it. That's what Carleton is about: awesome profs, awesome classes, and learning unexpected things in enjoyable ways.

    Did you visit Carleton before applying? Kifaya Taha '17 says:
    I had a great prospie experience. I stayed for two days and my host was so nice. It’s just a feeling you get. You feel like you belong. I definitely felt warmth from sitting in a class. Plus, it was a small class, and I like that about a liberal arts college. We’re a community here. It’s very warm, homey and comfortable. I remember that I got lost once while trying to find a building. I must have looked confused, and somebody came up to me and asked, “Do you need help?” Little things like that. People here are very open, very nice.

    I was looking for a small school where I would feel challenged but not pressured academically. I was also looking for a school that would let me pursue all of my interests - a double major, varsity sports, and theater - to the fullest. I visited Carleton, and after getting a taste of Minnesota nice and the scent of Malt-o-Meal in the air, I knew Carleton would be a good fit for me.

    I came to Accepted Student Days, and I remember being stunned by how excited everyone was to see prospies. All of the Carls were really welcoming and eager to convince us why Carleton was the best school.
