A fantastic institution that encourages you to follow your passion, whatever it may be. The list of clubs is endless, allowing you to foster your interest in a variety of activities.

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.
