I greatly enjoy the smaller student population and class sizes. This allows us to be closer as a community and be on a personal basis with our professors. The academia isn't too hard, but classes definitely keep you busy. Most of the teachers have office hours that they are more than happy to have students use whenever we need help.
The tuition is fairly high, but many scholarships are available. I am receiving assistance with more than half of the tuition.
There are also many opportunities to study abroad at Carroll, I am hoping to do so a year from now and study in Japan.
A few of the cons are with the cafeteria and dorms. The cafeteria staff are pleasant and the food is decent. The problem is that, overall, we don't have a lot of times we can go in to eat, especially on the weekends.
The dorms are older so there are problems occasionally, but when reported things are fixed in a timely manner.
Overall, I have enjoyed my stay at Carroll and look forward to the rest of my time here.
I love it here. It is very small, and there are some negative things that come with that like limited on campus food options and events, and few class selections. However, the environment that is Carroll is amazing. The prof.s are amazing and want to get to know you. Everyone there want to see you succeed! That makes a huge difference in the education you get.
There are so many different classes that are very interesting along with the standard classes. The Anthrozoology classes are very interesting. The professors are very helpful when it comes to helping out or scheduling due date for assignments and tests. My communications professor, before starting class, if someone was missing, she would have us call the person and would not start class with out contacting this person first. They care about you and your education.
