Past Event Recordings
Finding Your Place (Recorded Video)
Carleton is committed to the ideals of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. With students hailing from across the country and around the world, our diverse community will challenge and support you while recognizing the diverse perspectives and experiences each one of you brings to campus. Students at Carleton find social support through offices like the Office of Intercultural Life, Office of International Student Life, Gender and Sexuality Center, TRIO-Student Support Services, and Accessibility Resources while enrolled at Carleton. If you are curious to learn about the myriad perspectives on campus as well as the offices, resources, and peers who will support you, we invite you to join us!
Navigating Your Financial Aid Award (Recorded Video)
Aid awards can sometimes be confusing and intimidating. Our student financial aid staff will walk through an example aid award and review the different parts of a Carleton financial aid award. You can expect to better understand what you have been awarded and how much you will owe next year.
Undergraduate Research, Teaching, and Learning Panel (Recorded Video)
Research opportunities are open to students starting from their first year up to their last year, and realistically, even beyond. Marynel Ryan Van Zee (fellowships office), Serena Zabin (history), Pam Middleton (Pre Med), Cherlon Ussery (linguistics), and Arjendu Pattanayak (physics) all share their experience working with students on various research projects around campus.
Global Perspectives Panel (Recorded Video)
This panel features four Carleton professors from offices all around campus and two current students to share how Carleton intentionally fosters a globally-minded community.
Student Employment Panel (Recorded Video)
Five current students share their experiences with student employment at Carleton (and don’t worry! Students aren’t working 40 hours every week – we limit our first years to working 8 hours per week and our sophomores to seniors to 10 hours per week). Topics in this panel include balancing school and work, how they got their first on-campus job, how much they earn, and much more.
You’ll be Supported (Recorded Video)
Support is a cornerstone of our campus community but there’s no one-stop-shop for help at Carleton. We recognize that different students need different forms of support at different times; from academic prep to personal wellbeing. This panel of faculty and staff experts are here to talk about the various forms and places of support students have close access to.
Apples-to-Apples: Comparing Aid Awards (Recorded Video)
The total awarded in a financial aid award is not always an indicator of which one is the best. The details and how you interpret different components matter. Our financial aid staff will provide tips on how to compare aid awards and make sure you are seeing each award accurately.
Alumni to Students & Families (Recorded Video)
Students come to Carleton for many different reasons along with a range of hopes and ambitions for what comes next. Join us to hear recent alumni talk about their first steps into the real world, post Carleton.
