We are pleased to invite high school senior students to sample one of the nation’s best liberal arts colleges! Nestled in historic Northfield, MN, Carleton College is home to some of the most exceptional professors and extraordinary students in the country. Our students represent all 50 states, several U.S. territories, and 42 countries. More than 27% of our students identify as people of color, and 9% of our students come to us from outside the United States. We value diversity of all types on campus, and we strive for a student body that’s representative of as many different backgrounds as possible.
As part of this commitment to diversity, we host several programs for traditionally underrepresented students. The Taste of Carleton (TOC) fly-in program offers students a chance to get just that — a taste of Carleton College! This all-expenses-paid program brings 60 high school seniors to campus for three days and two nights. The selection committee will give priority to students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds. We particularly encourage students of color, first-generation college students, and low-income students to apply.
