2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid sucks because I can barely afford paying what I am and I'm gonna be buried in loans as soon as I graduate. I'm constantly wondering if it's worth it.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: The whole campus will be covered in snow and every other school in the area will be closed but we're still expected to go to class even though half of our student population is made up of commuters.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I really don't eat off-campus except for ordering pizza.

2 College Sophomore

Majors: We have to take classes that don't seem remotely related to our area of study (physics for athletic training?) and if you don't get a certain grade you're booted from the program.

2 College Sophomore

Majors: I think I would come into college with a different major if I knew it was this ridiculous.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I have absolutely no idea. My idea of a fun Friday night is ordering pizza and popping in a Disney movie.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The cost for the "good" housing is annoying but people put up with it for location and private bathrooms.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food is okay but I don't know how it compares to other schools. Friends from other schools claim their food is terrible so I'd call that a win for my school food.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Waukesha is really crunched together so it's hard for non-locals to find their way around.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The girls to guys ratio is 3:1 and the slim pickings of guys is pretty pathetic. The girls are really diverse in interests and whatnot but around half are nursing students.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Everyone has been to at least one athletic event and the fans are pretty energetic. The teams do fairly well for our small school size and almost everyone is an athlete.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek people don't outwardly act any better than non-Greek people but most people think it's pointless to be in Greek life (unless you're in it). They get all the awards at banquets though.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: You don't necessarily NEED a computer/laptop but it's very convenient for personal access.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The campus shuttle is good for getting around but other than that I have no idea. I usually just stay on campus (walking distance).

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have absolutely no idea.

4 College Junior

Academics: There are multiple options when going to school here. Study options with professors, registration is easy enough online and professors will always remember your name.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is fine I just didn't like the cleanliness and thus moved off campus.

3 College Junior

Weather: No one is in charge of the weather its just what happens. Its Wisconsin what do you expect, its unpredictable.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: There is a large array of food options but it is not always the best tasting.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Everyone is very accepting of everything, we have multiple organizations specifically for diversity.

3 College Junior

Majors: Because we are such a small school we do not have a large array of majors but its a great small school to attend.

College Junior

Majors: I have never had an internship so this question doesn't apply to me.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Theres enough food options off campus but its only accessible by car or extended walk.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: To live off campus in the first place is a difficult process. But the living off campus is much better and cheaper.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I don't have time for intramurals but others seem to utilize them and have a lot of fun with their teams.

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.
