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!
This small liberal arts school is the perfect place to receive a high quality education. Carroll College is tucked away in the beautiful capital city of Montana. The Big Sky country allows for students to receive a prestigious education at the same time providing students with the chance to explore some of the most beautiful countryside in the nation. Just a couple hours away from Glacier National Park, this quaint little school provides students with the opportunity to learn during the week and then take off for great weekend adventures. Carroll College is not like many other schools. Carroll values the community aspect of the college. The small student population allows for strong student-professor relationships along with great connections to the world beyond Carroll.
