Carleton is excellent both academically and socially. You have endless opportunities to try new things, meet incredible people, and learn continuously in and out of the classroom.

Question
Think twice before attending this pipe-dream of aNot so brightOther
Think twice before attending this pipe-dream of a college. It's an exceptionally disingenuous place, and the people are all rich, politically correct chucklefucks who think they're special. The people who run the place are particularly so.

The descriptions you read on the internet are gross misrepresentations of the reality.You would be better off going to a state school. The tuition is simply not worth it.

Question
Carleton is a truly unique place with aQuite BrightPhysics
Carleton is a truly unique place with a fantastic, brilliant, and quirky student body where anyone and everyone can find a place to fit in and enjoy whatever college experience they desire. The faculty and professors are truly a great resource. They go out of their way to make themselves available to help you during your years here and its clear that the growth of students in all facets of life is the top priority. The small, close-knit student body can lead to groups which may come off as cliquey at first. However, it is very unlike the typical high school experience and whilst everyone has their closer friends, few if any of these groups choose to exclude rather than having the opportunity to meet and befriend new, interesting people. I have truly loved my time here at Carleton and it has really come to feel like a home and unparalleled source of personal growth.
