Most Helpful Review for Carleton College
  • Category: Will learn a lot
  • Review by: Sara from Buda, TX

Carleton offers a comprehensive liberal arts education. Because it is based on a trimester schedule, students only take three courses per ten-week term. This allows them to focus more on the classes in which they are enrolled without becoming overwhelmed. And at the end of their four-years, they will have actually taken four classes more than most students at most other universities. Additionally, because Carleton is a small school that only offers an undergraduate education, all classes are taught by professors (rather than graduate students) and are small in size.

    A small, rural, liberal arts college. Full of friendly, interesting, diverse students and equally friendly and interesting faculty. Despite it's small size, there is a niche for virtually every student at Carleton, waiting to be discovered!

    Everyone is Minnesota friendly, in other words we are all there to help each other grow, there isn't a strong sense of competition but rather communication. Carleton supports each and every person with clubs, sports, and all sorts of activities. Carleton creates leaders in every field.
