Falling for Carleton

Falling for Carleton is a great time to see Carleton’s campus, especially for families just starting to learn about Carleton.  You'll be able to talk to current students and faculty members, learn more about the application process, and see what our campus and Northfield are all about. High school seniors who want to interview need to register online in advance.

This is an open house without a specific schedule: instead, we'll encourage you to look at the possible options available each day and craft a morning, afternoon, or full day that suits your interests.  Many events are repeated on both Thursday and Friday, and you can spread out your time across both days, or fit your visit into a single day.  We encourage all visitors to register in advance.  Will we see you on Thursday or Friday?
