Bay Area Regional Carls


New to the Bay Area?

The Alumni Relations office sends emails about Carleton events occurring in the Bay Area to alumni who live nearby. Not seeing any emails? Update your contact information by emailing us or by signing in to the update form with your Carleton credentials.

How to Get Involved

Carleton regional events exist to connect alumni, parents, and friends with each other and with the College. They provide social and educational programs, a forum for renewing old acquaintances and meeting new Carleton people, and opportunities for bringing news about Carleton to those who may not have visited the campus recently.

Each year we host a number of events such as Nationwide Trivia, Coffee with Carls, Summer Send-offs, happy hours, summer picnics, and more. Have a great idea for an event? We would love to hear from you — we need your help in organizing events!
