Academic and Athletic Excellence

The academic environment at Carleton is both highly challenging and supportive. The rigorous liberal arts education you’ll receive in the classroom, surrounded by bright, engaging classmates and a faculty dedicated to teaching, is one of the best in the nation.

The experience you’ll have as a student-athlete is no different. You’ll be supported by coaches who are committed to helping you reach your athletic goals and who will push you to be your best. You’ll train and compete with motivated teammates who encourage, inspire, and care about you. Like athletes everywhere, w strive to win, but the relationships you build and the development process that gets you to game day are just as valued as the win/loss record.

Because your education is our priority, we schedule practices and games around academic commitments. Athletics at Carleton doesn’t overtake everything else you want to do. You can study abroad (more than once if you want to), do research side-by-side with a professor, get an internship, get involved in student organizations, volunteer in the community, and so much more. Being a student-athlete will be a big part of your identity at Carleton, but it won’t be the only thing that defines your life as a Carl.
