I attended Carroll College for my undergraduate studies in Health Sciences on my pursuit to become an occupational therapist. I am incredibly grateful that I chose to spend four years in Helena, Montana and I cannot imagine having a better college experience. The relationships that I have established with my peers will last a lifetime, and the majority of people attending Carroll College are genuinely good people. The academic curriculum is advanced, and you will receive a top notch education from the best professors. With the small class sizes I was able to get to know my professors on a personal level, which was a huge advantage to learning. The campus of Carroll College is unbelievably beautiful, and there is ample opportunities for student involvement. Overall, Carroll College provided me with the best four years of my life (so far) and was the most positive experience I have had.

I am currently a freshman at Carroll College in Helena, MT. I'm so glad I chose to come to Carroll. It's small, family friendly, and feels like its own little community. I was choosing between another school and this one, and I couldn't be happier for deciding on Carroll! My intended major is Nursing with the intentions of going into Pediatrics/Neonatal and working at St. Jude one day. This school is well-known for its success in the medical programs that it offers. Once again, I couldn't be happier with my decision to attend Carroll and hope others think the same.
Carroll College was an absolutely amazing experience. Every school promises that you join a family, but that is especially true at Carroll. The professors go out of their way to meet you and often invite you over for games and dinner and what not. I've read some of the negative reviews and don't be mislead. Most are based on a single instance and they fail to look beyond it. Is Carroll 100% perfect? No. But I'd be hard pressed to find another school that is. It all depends on how invested you are. If you come to Carroll open and ready for a fun experience, you'll love it!
