            Great School.

            I loved attending Carleton University. Although the campus is quite big, you get used to it very quickly. In the winter, take the tunnels or skate your way on the canal to school. In the summer, enjoy the view of the Rideau canal and the breathtaking scenery. Their law program is one of a kind and you get really valuable information and great professors. I learned a lot and it has helped me in my future endeavors.

            Fond Memories.

            I will always look back fondly on my time at Carleton. While completing my BA in Global Politics I learned a lot, gained valuable experience through an international internship in Geneva, and had experiences that I will remember and treasure for a lifetime.
