I will miss the community that Carroll has provided when I graduate. However, I know that I have made friends for life that will remain forever in my heart as family. For example one of the first people I met freshman year is still one of my best friends. Next year I am going to be a bridesmaid at her wedding!

I love Helena because there are so many outdoorsy things to do in and around town. You can fish on the lakes or rivers, hike the trails, bike, ski and so much more around town.
Hometown: Wasilla, AK
I love how Helena has a small town atmosphere but still provides BIG opportunities. There are lots of places to do internships and get advice from professionals. Being at Carroll in Helena has made me very optimistic about my future. As a nursing major I am looking forward to having my clinical experiences at both St. Peter’s Hospital and Shodair Childrens Hospital located here in Helena. My favorite things to do in Helena also include going to the Big Dipper for ice cream, sledding down Guad Hill, watching movies in Simperman Auditorium, and having dinner at Taco Del Sol.

My favorite thing about Helena is its central location in Montana. We have beautiful mountains to our West and rolling badlands, reminiscent of cowboys and ghost towns to our East. Some of the best fishing and hunting in the country is only half an hour away from our city limits, while Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks are only four hours away. Nature is at our back door!
Hometown: Clancy, MT
My favorite thing about Carroll is the family and people. Everyone at Carroll is so nice and would help anyone with anything! You can always count on people being genuine, caring, and friendly. The people make Carroll the phenomenal and faith-filled home it is for all who are here. For example, during new student move in, upper classmen rush to the new students’ cars and unload all their belongings and carry it to their rooms! It is all volunteer work and each volunteer helps welcome students to the Carroll family!
Hometown Albuquerque, NM
The thing that I will miss most about Carroll is the vibrant group of people. After spending four years getting to know and spend time with so many amazing students and professors, it will be hard to venture out into life without them all by my side.
Hometown: Selden, NY
Major: Anthrozoology and Psychology
Helena is such a great town. It has a little bit of everything. The people are great, the stores support Carroll students, and the location for all kinds of outdoor adventures is amazing. There’s something for everyone. I’ve never felt so safe and supported, even in my hometown!
Hometown: Portland, OR
Major: Biology (Pre-med)
The best thing about Carroll is the professors. Not only are they helpful and knowledgeable, but they are also great people. From helping you write a Journey parody song to discussing Breaking Bad in your Chemistry lab, the professors are here to make your time at Carroll great.
Hometown: Goffstown, NH
Major: English Writing
For a relatively small city, Helena is home to an impressive arts culture. There are several galleries and museums which feature the artistic talent of the Helena community. In addition, Helena yields a vibrant music culture. There is a host of live music throughout the city, not to mention a phenomenal symphony – all of which is easily accessible to Carroll students.
Hometown: Sammamish, WA
Major: Political Science, Business
The best thing about Carroll is the activities made available by Carroll programs. We are able to get extremely discounted lift-tickets to Great Divide and camping gear is always made available by the CAMP (Carroll Adventure and Mountaineering Program).
Hometown: Great Falls, MT
Major: Health Science
I am going to miss the people of Carroll College the most. So many professors and staff members have greatly impacted my life. One professor in particular has really sparked my interest in health science and even helped me network with local health professionals. Beyond that, the students I’ve met and friends I’ve made have changed my life for the better.
Hometown: Federal Way, WA
I love how much the Helena community supports Carroll. Several store owners are either Carroll graduates themselves or hire Carroll students and many businesses offer discounts to students. Home games are always filled with fans from the Helena community who love Carroll. I love the tailgating before games because I always get free food.
Hometown: Fremont, CA
Major: Anthrozoology with a Psychology minor
I will really miss working in the Admission office when I graduate from Carroll. I love that my job consists of helping prospective students and their families fall in love with Carroll. But my favorite aspect of this job is working in the office itself. The admission counselors are like family to me. They have helped me though my struggles and helped mold me into the woman I have become today.
Hometown: Valier, MT
Major: Psychology with Philosophy and Theology minors
The thing I will miss most about Carroll when I graduate is Campus Ministry. Events like Freshman/Sophomore Retreat, Search and COR have shaped me as a man and helped me discover my vocation through Christ. Campus Ministry took me to serve in Guatemala and because of this experience I will be forever changed. Carroll is a school where learning occurs in and out of the classroom and focuses on creating a person who is meant to change the world.
Hometown: Rathdrum, ID
Major: Health Science
I will miss the feel of the Carroll family. The students, faculty, and staff are all very friendly and are there for one another. I love how people say hello while walking around campus. I will also miss swing dancing. Doing tricks and jumps is da bomb!
Hometown: Cut Bank, MT
Major: Communication Studies and Public Relations
The best thing about Carroll is definitely the people. When I moved into Guadalupe Hall as a freshman, I was greeted with smiling faces and helping hands. I think I carried one thing into my first home away from home. After move-in, it only got better the more people I met. I connected with so many students and eventually built relationships with my professors. It’s a great feeling when your history professor not only knows your first name, but also your hometown, favorite sport, and other interests.
Hometown: Los Altos, CA
Major: Elementary Education (with a Reading minor)
I love the events that connect Carroll with Helena’s community and culture. Every year on Halloween, Guadalupe Hall, one of the freshman residence halls, opens its doors to the kids of Helena for trick-or-treating. Handing out candy to the kids was a huge highlight of my college experience.
Hometown: Great Falls, MT
Major: Biology and Biochemistry
I will most miss having the chance to stop by my professor’s and supervisors’ offices and talking about work and school as well as life in general. In my first month as a student at Carroll, one of my professors gave me tips on how to get into medical school and fostered my goals and now we’re friends.
Hometown: Portland, OR
Major: Health Science (Pre-dental) with Chemistry and Biology minors
My favorite thing about Helena is its proximity to outdoor activities. Running, hiking, and cross-country skiing are right outside my door. Backpacking, down-hill skiing, white-water rafting, camping, and fly-fishing are close enough for a Friday activity or weekend event. Montana is a beautiful place year-round and there are countless opportunities to experience the state.
Hometown: Missoula, MT
The combination of a liberal arts curriculum and a Catholic community gives students a sense of family here at Carroll. All of the students and faculty are friendly and help each other out. I even ran into my chemistry professor skiing my freshman year only a few weeks after school started and he knew me by name.
Hometown: Bonners Ferry, ID
Major: Civil Engineering
The best thing about Carroll is the tight-knit community. Growing up in a small town, I enjoy getting to really know my professors and classmates here on campus. Walking to class, it is not uncommon to say hello to 5-10 peers or professors who know you by name.
Hometown: Dublin, CA
Major: Elementary Education
After I graduate, I will miss my friends and teachers tremendously. I can always count on a hello from my teachers and a genuine interest in my well-being. My friends and I have shared so many wonderful memories from sledding down Guad Hill, to swing dancing my heart out, to enjoying each other’s company at late night in Subconnection! I will miss Carroll dearly!
