We play well together 

Your involvement in student organizations and campus activities will shape some of your strongest Carroll memories. It could be your experience leading student government. Or the lasting friendships you make doing volunteer work. Or the sense of community formed from playing sports or performing in plays.

Whatever your interests, we’re confident of this—you’ll connect with others who share your passions, and you’ll have a lot to choose from.

Make a difference

“We work together for the good of our communities.”

That is one of Carroll’s core values, and why working to improve the lives of others isn’t an “extracurricular” activity at Carroll—it’s at the very heart of who we are.
