The professors here get to know their students. They know their stuff, and they're passionate about their work. This can lead to impossible homework assignments and endless amounts of papers, but there's a reason for all of it. The professors never cease to challenge or lower their expectations for any of their students. Classes are rarely all lectures; they usually revolve around group discussion.
Carleton is a liberal arts college, so there are a lot of requirements in each field. Students must have a core of three math and science, two arts and literature, two humanities, three social sciences, and four physical education classes, as well as fulfilling the language requirement, completing a writing portfolio, and finishing your major with a comprehensive exam/paper senior year. This schedule gives students a balanced schedule. Parents often scratch their heads wondering why their pre-med daughter is learning about Miles Davis. But trust me: Carleton is not a walk in the park. Does baseball statistics sound easy to you? Answer that after your first four-hour assignment using a complicated program to prove why Jack Morris belongs in the Hall of Fame. Needless to say, you'll be challenged at Carleton, but you'll also have fun-even if you average more than one all-nighter a week.
