The Culture of Carroll

Students from around the world choose to come to Carroll College because of the many wonderful opportunities available here.  We encourage you to get involved in as many activities as possible, to fully immerse yourself in the Culture of Carroll!

Carroll  is a Catholic, diocesan, residential college with a strong mission to serve others. We are located in the majestic Rocky Mountain West, between Yellowstone and Glacier National parks.  Helena has recently been ranked as the "Most Affordable College Town in America" and is also known as "The Best Little Art Town in America."
