Carleton is a great college. The other students are friendly to everyone and care for each other. The academics are great too. They are rigorous but interesting. Northfield is a town that likes its students. There are things that Carleton lacks like renowned sports or the quality of the food, but it is still a great college.
I wasn't exactly unpopular in high school, but I still felt like I didn't really fit in. I didn't have much of niche outside of hanging with teachers, particularly my band director. In retrospect, I did win a superlative, so clearly I made some sort of impression. But eventually I got to Carleton after applying early decision, and I found people who really got me, whom I could talk to about anything without fear of judgment (unless, of course, you say something not completely politically correct, but one learns). Even more than the students, I found so many great professors. Heck, my best friend is a professor. He actually edited a prospective student's essay that I was helping with because he's devoted enough to helping me. He's just one of the many professors I have forged a close bond with, who have improved my academic skills and taken interest in me and my personal life. The classes are hard, but professor support makes them manageable. Beyond the classroom, I've had many opportunities to join clubs or intramurals (my frisbee team sucked, but we had the most heart) and see talks/concerts/performances of all kinds. 11/10 would go again.
It's a great school, but not perfect. Especially as a person of color on campus, it can be pretty difficult to cope sometimes. However, the academics are very rigorous and challenging which I like. There is also a good pre-med program, but the only problem is the pre-med association is not that active.

smart hard working fun and probally over stressed
Carleton students are generally not attractive. Carleton students are stereotypically awkward in social situations.
Hard, rigorous, fast-paced.
Best thing: You actually have the opportunity to reinvent yourself here, and because of that you can say and do what you want. No one will push you.
Possible, and not completely non-existent. You can make fun where you want to. We're not completely devoid of activity.
It feels like a home and community where people care about you and want you to succeed.
Carleton College loves their team.
The people are so gosh darn nice, dontcha know? Oh ya, you betcha.
Carleton College students work hard and play hard in an academically rich, culturally diverse environment.
Very intelligent, loves learning, liberal, "quirky"
Beautiful campus, excellent academics, interesting students
nothing. life is best learned as it's lived.
i wish i'd known (in hindsight) that i would want a higher gpa than i pulled off. i feel stupid about that, but it's a personal problem. i wish the advising was better but i think i was unusually unlucky, given my friends' experiences.
Someone who needs a clear path, who sees college as a road to the next step, rather than a journey that will lead them wherever they are meant to end up. Also people who are not fun--Carleton has no place for negative Nancys! Northfield is not a happening place, so we rely on our brains and our creativity to make fun for ourselves. People who cannot appreciate that, who need constant prepared stimulus from an outside provider, will feel cooped up.
The lack of on-campus food options, although I understand they have signed a contract with a new company and the food options have vastly improved.
The most frustrating thing about my school is that students constantly discuss of change but do not put their words to action. Furthermore, despite the students intelligence they can be very ignorant culturally.
Mai Fete is an island on one of the campus lakes. Party happens every Wednesday night in the spring - bonfire & brews.
Central Park is Northfield’s community park, located about three blocks away from campus...great place to spend a sunny
Carleton is usually thought of as a really nerdy school with "quirky" students. It's accurate if you think that means Carls enjoy learning and are interested in diverse subject matters.
