What the students are saying about:

Carleton College

Carleton College

At Carleton College, many joke that the five-story Gould Library is the centerpiece of the social scene. “Intellectualism isn’t about being in class here – it is your way of life.” “Students study constantly both because they want to, and because the work never stops. Even if you aren’t studying, you’re probably talking about something intellectual. You will very frequently run into students hanging out outside debating politics, religion or the theory of relativity.” This outside-of-class philosophizing only enhances in-class work, and students rave about the breadth and depth of classes available. They also praise the fantastic faculty. “Professors here are incredibly wonderful and down to earth - they have high expectations, but encourage and help students to meet them. As students we're welcomed into their offices and even their homes, usually with a plate of brownies to satiate us.”
