Visiting Campus This Summer

Want to visit this summer?

Things might feel a little quieter during summer, as we don't have academic classes in session. There are some students on campus, working and conducting research. If a summer visit works best for your schedule, we welcome you and your family! After all, 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.

Things to do during a campus visit

  • Watch a varsity sports practice and talk to the team & coach
  • Check out the exhibits at the Art Gallery
  • Go to campus events
  • Bake cookies at Dacie Moses House
  • Stop by Gould Library to peruse its one million items (or meet Oscar the penguin)
  • Play "Name That Tune" when the chapel bells chime
  • Take a walk in the Arb
  • Join a game of broomball or Frisbee, depending on the season
