With fall classes starting in less than one month, Carroll continues to update its Marching Back Plan to ensure a safe and healthy return to campus. Check out the Marching Back website for regular updates.
In the meantime, it’s incumbent on all of us to do our part to keep our community safe and healthy. Please wear your mask, wash your hands, use hand sanitizer, practice safe social distancing and stay home if you feel sick. It’s what Saints do.
President John Cech and Lewis and Clark Public Health encourage us all to #maskup - it's what Saints do!
We are excited to be celebrating our 2,000th member on Carroll Connect, a social media platform dedicated to keeping our alumni connected to each other and the greater Carroll community.

Kailey Kleinjan, a 2020 graduate of Carroll’s anthrozoology program, has wasted no time since graduation in applying her education and knowledge to create a new business. Hi-Line Canine, a dog training business run by the 22-year-old Chinook native saw its soft opening at the end of May. In the article in the Havre Daily News, Kleinjan said her new business has seen a successful launch despite the pandemic, which she said, hasn't had a huge impact on things so far. At Carroll, Kleinjan was one of last year’s Annual Giving Student Ambassadors and had been a phonothon caller all four of her years at Carroll.
