“The TOC program was insanely awesome. The only thing I would’ve wanted was more time to spend there. This program changed my whole outlook on college. I was unaware that Carleton College was rated #1 in the nation for undergraduate teaching. When I heard about this, I was astonished. Knowing that I’d be able to receive an exceptional, quality education at a beautiful institution with the friendliest people I’ve ever met made me realize that I belong at Carleton.”

"When I first arrived, I couldn't help but feel like an outcast. After all, these were college students in their natural environment. I was just a prospie. However, after only about ten minutes, I felt as if I were among friends. I was among strangers, but I felt right at home. Carleton students close gaps, build bridges, and form friendships that will last the rest of their lives."

“I had an amazing experience through TOC. Carleton has a supportive and collaborative environment that fosters curiosity and creativity. Instead of encouraging cut-throat competition between students, the environment is open and encouraging. Years from now, I envision myself approaching graduation, well prepared because of the environment that has fostered my learning and creativity. I am confident that I will easily find my niche, and that with Carleton behind me, I can make a difference in the world.”

“I had the pleasure of experiencing firsthand the life of a Carl during my visit as a TOC prospective student. I enjoyed every minute of it! The classes I attended were taught by professors who were engaging, and the small class sizes allowed for more interpersonal communication. I also enjoyed just hanging out with Carleton students, from the Lenny Dee performance, to a Halloween party, to playing pool in Sayles (which has amazing food). I feel more than content making Carleton my home for the next four years.”
