"I didn't like history before I took classes here at Carroll. The history professors here are great, they keep you engaged. An my adviser, Dr. Swartout doesn't just advise you academically - he wants to know what is going on in your life. He's always there for you on a personal level." -JD Soloman, '01, History & Secondary Education with a minor in Physical Education
"(The faculty) are not only passionate about their subject, but are equally passionate about their students. They taught me that history is not simply names and dates, but the stories and experiences of those fellow humans who have gone before me. The history faculty at Carroll serve as models in innumerable ways." -Dr. Joseph Laythe, Professor of History, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania
