What is life like at Carleton University in Northfield?


I live in Northfield and it has been nice to smile at people when I walk to school –

they generally are a very nice bunch. I want to show them that not all college

students are drunk partiers.

Campus is a child free, fairly white, upper class, English speaking zone,

Northfield, while still fairly white, has a large Hispanic community, and many

children are raised here.

I think Carleton is a very different place than the rest of Northfield. Although

Northfield is by no means a diverse town, I feel like there is a wide variety of

character in the town, which I don’t really see on the Carleton campus.

My experiences on campus are extremely different from those I experience in the

community surrounding campus. In my interaction with Northfield, I have

encountered and gotten to know a large immigrant population, one that is mostly

undocumented. This demographic does not appear to be represented at Carleton.

Carleton is filled with intellectual types. The surrounding community has real

people too.

By virtue of the fact that the community surrounding campus isn’t made up of

strictly highly motivated and intense students and professors, I feel that my

experience in town is a more relaxed one.

I enjoy my time more with the community members who have accepted me into

their homes because we share similar ethnic, racial and socio-economic identities.

I feel that my experience in the community surrounding campus is more positive

and welcoming.

I generally find it easier to relate to people outside the campus.

I have found local people to me friendlier and generally more welcoming than

some of the people on campus. Perhaps this is because of their maturity (as

associated with age), or perhaps because they are more accustomed to

accommodating younger/immature/demanding students.

In Northfield I feel less restricted in my behaviors and more open to discussing

conflict. I have experienced no repercussions for expressing an opinion or

disagreeing with another person in town. Me and my partner’s livelihood are at

stake if I disagree with the wrong person on campus. It’s quite disconcerting.

On campus, I feel uncomfortable. When I am off campus I feel a lot better.

Yes, I am valued, respected, and elevated to leadership positions throughout the

community. Here, I have no access to elevate my position.
