A Prime Location
We might say it with a chuckle, but it’s no joke: we’re right in the middle of everywhere, conveniently located between the two coasts! Our 1000-acre campus in Northfield, MN offers the best of both worlds. Northfield’s a quiet, safe community with coffee shops to hang out in, forests to explore, and shooting stars to admire… but don’t mistake our rural town for being remote! We’re only 45 minutes from the Twin Cities. We bet you’ll take at least a few classes that get you up into Minneapolis or St. Paul.
Never been to campus? See if you qualify for a travel subsidy to come see this place for yourself.
“The campus feels like home, with trails to run on, an environmental conscience, and a fun-loving atmosphere. Besides, what’s not to love about a place where the staplers have names? Truthfully, Carleton was in my second tier of choices when I visited Minnesota… until I set foot on campus. Then WHAM! Like walloping a non-Newtonian fluid, my selection solidified. The school has been my #1 pick ever since, and it is the yardstick against which all others are compared.” — Carrie Johnson, Knightstown, Ind.
“[During my visit] I met some of the most supportive, educated and overall nicest people I ever had in my life. I never imagined there was a college where virtually everyone is supportive and understanding of each other… because college is not just about an education, what happens outside of the classroom is just as important as what happens inside. From my experience visiting, I know for a fact that Carleton will provide me with the personal character growth and education unlike any other college I know of.” — Sharaka Berry, Chicago
