    Taste of Carleton, 2019: All expenses-paid program!
    October 10 – October 12.
    Our application is live. Apply here!

    We are pleased to invite high school senior students to sample one of the nation’s best liberal arts colleges! Nestled in historic Northfield, MN, Carleton College is home to some of the most exceptional professors and extraordinary students in the country. Our students represent all 50 states, several U.S. territories, and 42 countries. More than 27% of our students identify as people of color, and 9% of our students come to us from outside the United States. We value diversity of all types on campus, and we strive for a student body that’s representative of as many different backgrounds as possible.
    As part of this commitment to diversity, we host several programs for traditionally underrepresented students. The Taste of Carleton (TOC) fly-in program offers students a chance to get just that — a taste of Carleton College! This all-expenses-paid program brings 60 high school seniors to campus for three days and two nights. The selection committee will give priority to students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds. We particularly encourage students of color, first-generation college students, and low-income students to apply.

    What happens at Taste of Carleton?
    Thursday
    Arrive at Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport by 5 p.m. and take a shuttle to Northfield.
    Attend a welcome reception and meet your student host.
    Friday
    Attend a class that suits your interests: anything from Principles of Psychology, to Genes and Evolution, to Latinas in Hollywood.
    Explore campus, tour the 800 acre Arboretum, chat with students in the Sayles-Hill student center, or attend our weekly convocation.
    Have an interview with a member of the admissions staff.
    Get your student life questions answered by current students at a Q&A session.
    Sample Carleton’s night life.
    Saturday
    Savor a final morning at Carleton before the shuttles depart for the airport.
    Sound good to you?
    We hope you’ll submit an application to be considered for Taste of Carleton. We typically open up the application several months in advance of the program. To stay connected and receive email reminders about Taste of Carleton, sign up to receive more information.
