in Carleton's Bachelor of Honors Humanities program so my review
may not be helpful to many prospective students as the
Hums degree sort of functions separately.
The classes are
extremely small for the core courses so your professor definitely
gets to know you on a first name basis- to
the point where you hang out in your spare time.
I will not lie- the program is VERY difficult
but you get out of it what you put in;
for the most part. There are times when I feel
like I am not doing as well as I would
like, but then I realize I didn't do one reading
and it's probably my fault. In that case, it is
very easy to fall behind.
The social aspect and
friends are up to you- as it would be anywhere.
Sometimes I feel that Carleton does not provide many activities
that are condusive to getting to know a large group
of people, or they're too large to get to know
All in all- I'm glad I'm at Carleton;
mostly because of the program I'm in. Aside from Classics
and Journalism- I don't see it being that fantastic.
