Carroll Life All Together

Student Life

In This Section

When we asked Carroll students what they valued most about their time here, their answers could be summed up in one word: friendships.

We take a holistic view in supporting our students.

Did you know that over 70% of your time pursuing a degree is spent outside the classroom? When you’re part of our community, your experience is maximized through a fostering of genuine curiosity for the world around you. Here you will learn the true meaning of an ecumenical welcome.  We are here to support you and provide the tools for your journey. It’s enjoying the great outdoors (and believe us, it is great, as you’ll experience it when you visit). It’s unwinding in our indoor recreation center. It’s acting in a play and singing in a musical group. It’s focusing on your whole self from your spiritual journey to your health and wellness.  It’s creating memories that can last a lifetime. 

Student life at Carroll is another example of our motto in action: not for school, but for life.

Living at Carroll

Carroll offers a wide range of housing options designed to bring together learners from across academic majors and varied interests to be in community together. Each community is supported by a team of live-in paraprofessionals and professional staff who work to create a welcoming, safe and engaging environment. 

Our newly designed dining hall, St. Thomas Aquinas Commons (STAC), sets the stage for students to take advantage of flexible dining options. Along with enticing menu options, the STAC is open 16 hours a day, providing not only nourishment but gathering places for studying and connection. With an all-access meal plan, drop in for a coffee or refueling as many times a day as you need.
