4 College Sophomore

Administration: Carroll provides plenty of options on the weekends if partying is not your thing. Final Friday Films are awesome!

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Most parties get busted kinda early, but nothing happens, the cops just tell you to leave. Typically there is another party nearby that you can walk too.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Peoples Park is definitely the place to be, eating on the roof is super cool during the summer. There is also this awesome gelato place downtown that isn't too pricey.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Campus food is above average to say the least. Holiday meals are amazing and are well liked on campus so you have to get their early if you want a seat! They typically have a variety of well tasting items and can take the food to go if you want too.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid at Carroll is based on high school GPA and ACT score, so you don't have to apply for a financial award when you apply, it is given to you.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorm rooms are small; this is typical of a college campus and is part of what I believe to be the college experience.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The process for financial aid is a hard process because you have to turn in many forms and sometimes the advisors do not tell you what you need so its a repeated cycle. It is worse for commuters because sometimes we are about 30 minutes away and they want us to drive just to turn in papers. I would just email even though it is better to do it in person but gasoline is very expensive. It is a hassle but I received the aid for the following year.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It is okay to live off campus because it is a lot cheaper then living on campus for two semesters. Also it is hard to live off campus because of certain requirements have to be met.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Campus strictness at Carroll University Is the best because you will see police officers around campus just checking if everyone is okay. They are very helpful if you have a question. They are also very friendly and will talk to you if you did need anything like getting someone to walk you to your dorm late at night from across campus. The police are just the best and treat everyone equally.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Dining on campus is not that great because in the Main Dining Room there is a very limited choice to eat in a day. Also, in the PIT it is very unhealthy food including fast fried food and there are not many other major chains located in the PIT. The best thing is ABP even though it is not very close. The food there is ten times better then the PIT and MDR. I think another location should be added to vary meal choices.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms where I stayed were close to campus and had easy access to a volleyball court and other activities put on by the board that the residents could participate in. The quality was pretty basic. The showers and bathrooms got disgusting at times, as did certain hallway stenches. Housing selection was pretty simple to follow, and for the most part the social atmosphere was fun.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't really go to parties, but from what I hear, there are enough to keep those who want go every weekend at bay. There are some people that chose to venture outside of the campus and onto other universities to look for other parties that may fit their prevalence. It does impact students' performance in school, as I have watched my previous roommate struggle to handle with the decisions she made.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Going off-campus to eat is quite enjoyable, as long as students are willing to walk a little distance. There isn't a whole lot of off-campus options right around campus; however, there are plenty of options in downtown Waukesha that have reasonably priced food as well as offer good student discounts and variety within their menu. People's Park is one of my favorite's that offers a good variety of food and has friendly service, as well as Divino Gelato.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus does a good job as far as following policy and code for the most part. It's strict enough to promote the protection of the well being of the student and those around them. Alcohol use in the dorms could be improved upon, as I know for a fact that my previous roommate had multiple nights where she would underage drink with friends while in the dorm room.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a good amount of financial aid from the school. The process could've went a little more smoothly had I been told of everything I needed to fill out right away, rather than sent an email a day or two after I submitted what I thought to be my last paper.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The menu of the MDR offers many options for those who may not want the main course. However, some students like to eat healthier and there are a lot of days where there isn't much the MDR has to offer for them. The PIT has excellent quality of smoothee's and random grocery food, however, the quality of some of the other items on the menu are poor as far as nutritional value goes.

2 College Student

Scholarships: Promised a certain amount and first week of classes they said computer error.

2 College Student

Campus Food: The food is greasy, cold, and very unhealthy

3 College Student

Campus Housing: If you get into one of the new dorms then it is nice.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Plenty of houses/ apartments to chose from within a good proximity from campus

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Plenty of options. Just more costly than spending your existing meal plan. Lots of student discounts offered around the city.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties are a great atmosphere. Carroll is a small campus, so you'll always know majority of the people at a party. They're never hard to find, and there are always a few options.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration is fair, and lays out all rules ahead of time. You will know right from the beginning exactly what is expected of you.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Carroll is a little pricey, but definitely worth it! Many grants and scholarships are given for a wide rang of things upon enrollment. Good ACT scores and GPA contribute to grants given.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: A wide variety of foods all with a range of flexible hours. The main dining room has a great variety and mix of foods. All food is fresh, and many things can be made to custom order!

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.
