Computers: The computer labs on campus are large and are accessible to all students and faculty. The network is a little slow but it is not too bad. Carroll just implemented wireless last year throughout the entire campus and it is working great, there are a few glitches now and then but once again they are not too bad.

Health & Safety: I feel very safe at Carroll. Public Safety is always around, and they are just a call away if you need assistance. They also work closely with the Waukesha police to ensure our safety. All of the walkways on campus are well lit and open.

Off-Campus Dining: We have a great choice of downtown eating options at Carroll and almost all of the local restaurants offer Carroll students a discount. If you have a car on campus or know someone with a car your options get even bigger. The best places to check out are the local ones that are within walking distance like Peoples Park.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: Carroll is not a party school, but you can have a good time. If you are of age the bar scene is somewhat limited but still enjoyable. On the weekends Carroll hosts dinner trips, on and off campus movie opportunities, and discounted trips to brewer games. There are always events being held to keep people involved.

Athletics: Students are very involved in the athletic scene on campus and are very supportive of both the varsity and the intramural teams. People love getting their pictures taken with our mascot Pio Pete when he is seen around campus and at games.

Overall Experience: My experience at Carroll has been really great. I love that it is a small campus that is beautiful in every season. I have joined orgs and made friends, I have also gotten to know the faculty and staff that surround me at Carroll. If I could do it all over again I would definitely choose Carroll again. I love the atmosphere, the students are cared about at Carroll and we all know it.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Drinking and drug use is taken very seriously at Carroll if you are not of age you are expected to abstain. If you are of age you are expected to act in a respectable manner because you are reflecting the entire populous of Carroll. They understand that we are young, and in college, but they expect us to act like the adults that we are.

Facilities: The variety of programs offered for Carroll students is good, and fits popular demand. The class sizes are small, and we are given plenty of opportunities to interact with our professors. Once you enroll at Carroll you are assigned an advisor who is there to help guide you through class choices and help you stay on track for graduation and success.

Local Atmosphere: It's definitely a small town, and it is not for everyone but it is very charming. There are plenty of locally owned shops, restaurants, and bars to visit. During the summer and fall season there is a wonderful farmers market right downtown, and a lot of the local businesses offer Carroll students a discount if we have our student ID. The river walk is a beautiful attraction, and a lot of people like to take the river walk as a way of relieving stress.

4 College Junior

Academics: Being a Business Administration major at Carroll is great. It is the third most popular major on campus and the staff of professors and adjuncts that we have available to us is very helpful. The curriculum is designed so the we as students come out well rounded and prepared for what the corporate world has in store for us. All of the professors and adjuncts that teach our classes have real life experience.

3 College Junior

Diversity: The diversity on campus is not too outwardly noticeable, but it is definitely present among the groups you look at around campus, and within personal friend groups.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The campus housing options are pretty good, they're a little expensive, but it's worth the money. I lived in traditional dorms for three years, and have been comfortable. As the prices go up the quality goes up.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Alcohol use is not really that noticeable unless it is a big weekend like Spring Fling or Homecoming.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Don't be stupid and most of the time issues are nonexistent

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: A mile off campus doesn't get you very far

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Very clicky and gossipy, but otherwise ok

Overall, Carroll University is a great school. If given the chance, most students would choose it again. First off, this is because of the atmosphere. Carroll is small, so everything feels close and homey. The campus is beautiful and pleasant to walk through. Even downtown is close, which allows for some freedom on the weekends. It is enjoyable to have a little escape every now and then. In addition, the classes are small, so it is easy to get to know other students and faculty. This is something unique to Carroll—the relationship between students and professors. Many students form bonds with faculty members. There are no professor aids teaching any class, and the staff is helpful. If a student ever has questions or concerns, someone who works for Carroll is always available to help. It does not matter if a student needs computer help or is feeling overwhelmed by class; there is some service which will be happy to help. Carroll prepares its students for the real world by requiring internships or studying abroad. They offer career services, job fairs, and resume workshops. The apartment-style dorms are a great segue into housing after college. Carroll University is not intimidating. It feels like a home. Friends and faculty become family. For prospective students, Carroll University should be on the radar. It is a wonderful place for learning and a great place to make memories.
