4 College Freshman

Administration: Honestly, I'm not really a rule-breaker so I haven't had a lot of experience with strictness. A lot of classes are small, so if you miss class your professors will notice and call you out on it. Noise depends on your RA--mine was nice but not very strict, so there were a few times I got annoyed by people being loud late at night before I had a test or during finals week. They're pretty lenient on visitors. There is a form you're supposed to fill out, but no one really checks. As long as your visitor doesn't cause any problems, you shouldn't have to worry about it.

Campus Food: The meal plans for underclassmen really give you way more than you need-by the end of the semester I had almost half of my meals and the majority of my flex dollars left. Dining Hall hours are limited on weekends, and the variety is not great. Sometimes it seems like there are more options for vegans and gluten free and less normal food. The food really isn't bad--it just gets old fast, especially when you get close to long breaks and they're trying to use up what they have left.

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't lived off campus. I think it can be difficult to find safe and reasonably priced housing close to campus, but I'm really not sure.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party. I know there are parties, but that really isn't my thing.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I didn't have a car, so I didn't venture off campus all that often. Staggering Ox, the Brewhouse, and Hardee's are within walking distance, as well as a few other places downtown. There is a good crepe place and a student discount at the Frozen Moose for frozen yogurt. Shelly's is about the only late-night option. There aren't a lot of choices, but with a meal plan you feel a bit guilty going out too often anyway.

Scholarships: Carroll is expensive, but if you get good grades and test scores in high school you can get a good academic merit scholarship that can take quite a chunk out of tuition, which helps a lot. A lot of the other scholarships Carroll offers are major specific, so they are more for upperclassmen as far as I can tell.

Campus Housing: Freshmen and sophomores are required to live on campus. The freshman dorm on campus, Guadalupe Hall, is very nice. The rooms are fairly spacious and have beds that can be bunked or lofted and sinks, which is great. The sophomore dorm, St. Charles, is a little more hit and miss. It's an older building, so there are no sinks and the rooms vary a lot more. Some are huge, some are tiny, some you have to share a closet, some have different types of flooring, etc., etc. It is nice to live on campus though because you are so close to your classes, you can go to the lab or a classroom to study at night, and there are always people nearby to hang out with or work on homework with. Social events tend to vary by season--the beginning of the semester there is quite a bit going on, such as magicians, comedians, musicians, and some random carnivals and such, but by midterm there isn't always a lot to do. Also, the meal plans are over the top--you definitely don't need as many meals as they offer, especially when the food starts to get old towards the end of the year. I had the lowest meal plan allowed for freshmen and didn't even come close to using up all my meals.
