    The campus is smaller, so I do not have to walk as far to classes, its great when its cold out! There are many places to stop with friends to talk, or study. Overall, Carroll is never boring.

    There is something going on nearly every weekend - there's events called CU @ Night which bring movies, trips to the mall, zoo, Brewer's game, etc to campus. Homecoming and Spring Fling are more for the drinking but DON'T miss bingo! (They give some awesome prizes.) There is an organization (org) for anyone. From Fondue Night with the radio station to the annual History Student/Faculty Trivial Pursuit Night, you can find something for you. The only thing I found to be bothersome is how unwilling Public Safety is to give students rides to the grocery store as they said they would.

    At first, I didn't like it, but after I talked to my advisor and I joined orgs at Carroll and started to feel at home. I highly recommend everyone join orgs at Carroll, they're a great way to meet new people and not go crazy just doing work all the time. There's nothing to do downtown after 5pm, but if you have car, you get to actually go places. Downtown isn't too far, but it's tiny compared to Milwaukee's downtown. There's also nothing to do if you have no money, so get a job or save money that your parents give you. There's a six week challenge in the first six weeks to get students to stay, but that's the most fun over the weekends they have. Most people go home on the weekends, so it's nice to have peace on weekends. I would say the second semester, people are more friendly and there's lots to do because all the orgs are trying to do as many thing as they can in a short time.

    In most aspects, I enjoy attending Carroll. The size of the classroom allows for comfortable learning and there are many environments that support my studies. Because of the smaller classrooms, it is easier to form close relationships with the instructors. I'm able to ask for assistance and even get on a personal level with certain professors that are as interested in a subject as I am due to the comfort of the classroom. On campus, there are a multitude of areas that aid in learning and studying. The library in particular maintains many areas for this. For students that appreciate silence when doing homework, there is a quite room. The Learning Commons allows for a more relaxed, social environment for those who don't require absolute silence. Students can also meet and socialize in the coffee shop. Other areas on campus include restaurants, shops, and computer labs. The only factor I do not appreciate is that is seems as though Carroll favors students living on campus. For example, some late night activities discourage commuter involvement. It makes sense for the university to support the students that are away from home. However, if they equally catered their attention to the commuters, it would feel like a home to me as well.
