Life on Campus
At Carroll, life on campus is characterized by two things—opportunity and togetherness. Our setting in beautiful Helena, Montana, delivers easy access to the kind of outdoor activities that simply cannot be matched in most other parts of the country. From skiing, biking, hiking, and all the other outdoor fun just minutes from campus, to Helena’s vibrant arts community, to hundreds of campus events each year, to the Slip ‘N Slide down Guad Hill at orientation, it’s all fun. And we do it all, together. Make your moment.
Each year there are nearly 350 campus events hosted by students, and we offer more than three dozen student groups covering interests that range from academics, to music, to faith, to service, to health, to athletics, to the environment, and everything in between.
Nothing is more important to us than the safety of our community and ensuring that our students have all the academic and personal support they need to make the most of their Carroll experience.
Health and fitness play a major part in the lives of our students. The new Hunthausen Activity Center, scheduled to open in spring 2017, will offer state-of-the-art fitness and wellness facilities and resources to the entire campus community.
More than 95 percent of first-year students live on campus, and we offer a variety of residence halls and apartment living, including Borromeo Hall, Guadalupe Hall, St. Charles Hall, Trinity Hall, St. Catharine Apartments, and St. Matthew Apartments.
The Carroll Fighting Saints are among the most successful athletic programs in the NAIA. We’ve won six national football championships in the last 13 years, and we regularly win the George Bandy Award for the top athletic program in the Frontier Conference.
