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 over 55 countries. 32% of our students identify as Asian, Black or African American, Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, Hispanic, Native American/Alaska native, or more than one race, and 11% 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) program offers students a chance to get just that — a taste of Carleton College! 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.
