When people visit Carleton, they're often surprised by the warmth and closeness of the campus community. Somehow they expect a leading liberal arts college to feel more formidable and competitive. But as our students and alumni will tell you, there's just something different about Carleton. Maybe it's our small size (fewer than 2,000 students). Or maybe it's the round-the-clock proximity of so many creative minds (most students live and socialize on campus). Whatever the reason, Carleton is a place where students are likelier to cooperate than compete - and where working hard doesn't mean forgetting how to play.
Northfield is a city in Dakota and Rice counties in the State of Minnesota. The city is mostly in Rice County, with a small portion in Dakota County. With a vibrant main street just steps away, Northfield offers a steady stream of events: concerts, plays, art exhibits, sports matches, lectures, film screenings and more.
Most of Carleton's students—and all first-year students—live in one of the College's residence halls (dorms). Most floors have a diverse mix of men and women from all four classes, and RAs are there to coordinate floor and hall activities and other social and educational events. All residence halls have lounges, TVs and laundry facilities. All campus buildings are smoke-free and most halls have substance-free floors.
