4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The courses and professors at Carroll are, for lack of better words, a dream come true. The interaction and personal exchanges with the courses and teachers are the best I've ever experienced. The class sizes are small enough to allow interaction and verbal exchanges with the teachers during class sessions, and the style of personal discussion, rather than general lecture allows for a more in-depth learning experience.

Overall Experience: I do not yet have enough insight to provide a proper answer for this question out of my own experience. From what I've seen and been told by my classmates and associates though, is that there are many local and non-local work recruiters that come to Carroll and offer many opportunities, particularly in the Milwaukee area, and the medical fields. I only hope that I can receive the same enthusiastic recruitment for myself as a Historian.

Health & Safety: As an employee of Public Safety for Carroll University, I have had a first hand experience and insight regarding the safety and security of the Campus. Campus crime is something that is an issue for the University, mainly vandalism, and outside harassment. We have many cameras, and several law enforcement officers working for the University, but the student safety worker presence is very minimal. Despite our best efforts to get more participation from the student worker pool on campus, many students are turned off by the idea of working for public safety. Although we are understaffed, we still do our best to patrol and provide safety services for students at all times.

Campus Housing: I have lived in the non-traditional dormitories on Carroll's campus for 3 years now. And Pioneer hall is an excellent place to live, and have a home in. In my opinion, it is the best option for living due to its placement and perks. But the cost is a bit high, and continually raises every year along with tuition. This makes it difficult to maintain staying there in the long run in my case.The only thing preventing me from giving my campus housing experience the highest score is the constantly raising price.

Greek Life: I don't have much interaction with the Greek Life. Though the interaction I have had is a mixed bag. A majority of the Greek Life organizations on campus are legitimate community service institutions that provide services for the people on campus. Though the Greek community has been plagued by the occasional "Frat" which causes scandal and disdain for the Greek life.

Athletics: The sports teams at Carroll are seen as a recreational activity than a career path. Being in Division III, the teams are encouraged and play hard, but aren't focused upon regarding a students career. School spirit is supporting and lighthearted, and the athletic facilities are tailored to athletes. This does cause some issue with non athletes who wish to use the training facilities for exercise. Overall, the Carroll University Pioneers are a team meant to support the school, rather than something the school is meant to support like Division I sports teams.

Overall Experience: Carroll University is an excellent low population learning institution. At this place I can communicate and work with my professors and mentors one on one, and enhance my learning capabilities. Though attending overall is difficult for me and my family. The price of attending increases every year, and it has reached a point where I am currently barely able to afford my education. If I had the funds, I would attend Carroll again in a heartbeat, as it is a place that truly feels like home to me.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love this university. I was very welcomed by all the students and teachers there. The class sizes are small and It's great because I can have a relationship with the professor and be more interactive with the class. I do not like the grading system though. The grading scale is A, A/B, B, B/C, C, C/D, D, F. The grading system can either help you tremendously or ruin you. Let's say you have an A/B and you drop to a B. An "A/B" is worth 3.7 on your GPA. A "B" is worth a 3.0 on your GPA. That is the range difference that can make you or break you, depending on how your other grades are. The courses are quite challenging but not to the point where you would lose your mind.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The Exercise Science major is one of the top majors there so you can say that they try to assist all of the students to achieve succuss

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel completely safe wherever I go on campus. There is barely any crime at all. There are always officers on patrol. You can call for a shuttle if you don't want to walk anytime of the day and night.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The cost to dorm is a lot. It can be up to $9000. The best options are basically any apartment-style dorms like Pioneer Hall, Frontier Hall, and Prairie Hall. You can also get a house but I'm not sure what is the price for them. Traditional dorms have no A/C. It sucks for the first month because we still have warm weather. The dorms relatively close to the classes but it all depends on where you dorm.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is so much student spirit on campus and for a good reason. Our teams here do very well at Division III level. Our athletic facilitates are pretty good. The weight room is a little bit too small but we still make the best out of it.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone there is so welcoming. The teachers like to be your friend rather than just another teacher. It's a small campus so everyone basically knows each other. I am also part of the football team there so we do have a lot of fun each other.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I lived in a double in South Bergstrom. The windows in the hallway outside my room leaked water everywhere early in the semester. The university caulked it, but it started leaking again only a month or two later. We ended up setting out bowls to collect the water from soaking the hallway and radiator. There was no air conditioning in the building. Temperatures widely varied within rooms, from extremely cold to unbearably hot, even in the middle of winter. The same fluctuations occurred with water temperature in the showers.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Carroll doesn't seem to promote Greek life. The fraternities and sororities are small.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I haven't really followed campus sports, but many of my friends are involved in them. Carroll has very good facilities.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This college is pretty great. There are tons of resources for students, such as the Learning Commons, tutors, and regular study sessions to help out. The professors are also readily accessible.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus. I always see someone from public safety around campus, walking around in the day time, riding around campus, or an officer walking around at night. I feel relatively safe when I walk alone at night. I carry pepper-spray with me just to be safe, but don't feel like I will have to use it. I feel that public safety is kind of slow at updating the campus if there is something wrong going on.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors
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.
