The Carleton Undergraduate Bridge Experience (CUBE) is for any incoming student feeling nervous about starting at Carleton! Students who complete the full program (summer and fall) earn six credits towards graduation, which can provide a helpful cushion later on.
Through online activities in the summer, you will:
- Get to know other students in the Class of 2027 and become more familiar with Carleton before arriving in September
- Work directly with a Carleton faculty member and older Carleton students to review quantitative skills that faculty across campus say all students need to succeed at Carleton
- Get started with Microsoft Excel and collaborate with others on a Carleton data analysis project, and present your work at the CUBE Fall Poster Session
- Network with alums and explore how quantitative skills are important for all majors at Carleton, as well as a wide variety of careers and day-to-day decisions
In the fall, CUBE participants participate in a face-to-face course that continues to build on the activities of the summer. For more information, see our Frequently Asked Questions.
The application is due Friday, June 16 at 7pm (CST). It comprises two parts: a Google Form, and a quantitative skills assessment that helps us tailor the curriculum to each student. You do not need to prepare for this assessment.
