It's just one of the best colleges in the northwest, plain and simple.

Carroll College is a great institution with very qualified professors who care about your education and learning experience. I have found that it is an incredibly challenging school on top of balancing sports and work. However, I think it takes a certain type of person to go to this school. It's not a college town but it's also not in a big urban environment. It's a small school in a small town and that takes some getting used to.

Transitioning from high school to college was somewhat difficult for me. I felt that high school has left me unprepared for college's study habits, critical thinking skills, writing skills, and class participation. In the end, I managed not to fail any of my classes although my grade point average has left me a bit disillusioned.
