First, Carroll University has an outstanding campus! It has beautiful white stone buildings and a great main lawn where you can lay to relax, play football, soccer,etc. or even do your school work. Second, they have so many organizations to get involved in. From sororities and fraternities to political and diversity organizations, they have it all. Lastly, the professors want you to succeed and encourage you to do better and encourage you to come to their office hours if you need help. Because of the small class sizes, the professors know you and are willing to help you with anything you need. I would highly recommend Carroll University to anyone!
Review Carroll University
Carroll University is the perfect school for me! Everyone is friendly, the landscape is beautiful, and the teachers are amazing. Truly blessed to go to Carroll.
Although I am only a freshman at Carroll University, I have already gained so much from this university. I have gained the small, caring environment that Carroll provides. Any of the faculty and staff make themselves available at all times, whenever you may need them. The small class sizes and no TA's is a blessing because you are not a number, you are a fellow. A lot of the professors make it known that that they do not want to be a superior, just a leader or facilitator of our education. The campus offers many events that make staying on campus easy and makes the home sickness dwindle. The surrounding community supports Carroll students and is very friendly. The downtown area, just a 5 minute walk off campus, provides local shops and restaurants for a new experience. Thus far, Carroll has been the right choice not just academically but in all aspects because of the various high quality environment they provide.
