As you approach the end of the semester, we would like to provide you with information about the support services available to graduate students at Carleton.
Mental Health Support It is important that we take care of ourselves and our mental health while pursuing our school goals.
With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, many schools have canceled all tours and personal events for prospective students. Even as the world moves toward normalcy, some are still uncertain about the future of college attendance. However, the pandemic has given rise to a powerful new tool for students to explore and learn about college campuses: virtual tours.
While most schools have had an online presence for some time, the pandemic has dramatically increased the number and type of virtual offerings for potential students. These resources have advantages and disadvantages, which we list below, as well as a description of how to make the most of virtual opportunities.
