New Student Week

New Student Week helps new students get their bearings and get acquainted with the campus community before classes begin

Your first week on campus will provide a crash course in life at Carleton:

  • Meet your roommate and begin making friends
  • Transform your residence hall room into your own personal space
  • Meet your academic adviser and finalize class registration
  • Learn about the many resources, organizations and activities at Carleton
  • Begin to learn your way around campus and the surrounding community
  • Participate in a few Carleton traditions

All of this and more will be yours to experience, so come with your curiosity, energy and willingness to become a part of your new community at Carleton. By the end of New Student Week we hope you have a clear sense of how your own talents and abilities can flourish and grow. With a little effort, you will be prepared to thrive both academically and socially in your first year and beyond.
