A small liberal arts college in Northfield, Minnesota. Known for its high academic standards, Carleton is ranked as one of the best liberal arts colleges in the nation and hands down the best college in Minnesota. The students are extremely friendly, outgoing, and genuinely nerdy, but by no means are they considered prudes.
Student #1: I'm going to Carleton!! Am I awesome, or what?!

Student #2: Nice! Do you know any smart people going to St. Olaf?

Student #1: Nope.

This is a major university in Ottawa, Ontario which is the capital city of Ontario, Canada.
It is known for its extremely awesome social scene and its rivalry with OttawaU (University of Ottawa) which is the other major university in ottawa.
Rumours about Carletons failing education system, created by jealous OttawaU students because of the its cool scene are false!!
Carleton is the perfect university where school meets fun, sometimes the lines get a little blurry but CARLETON ROCKS!!!!!
First person: 'I need some fun in my life'

Second Person: 'Find some Carleton students, they can create fun out of virtually nothing!!!'

A third-rate Canadian University in a third rate City (Ottawa).

A common joke about Carleton is that the "K" stands for "Quality".

Explanation: The hard "C" in "Carleton" sounds like a "K", which also sounds like the hard "Q" in "Quality", point being Carleton grads can't even spell.
Q: "Where did you go to University?"

A: "I didn't, I went to Carleton"

A small country town in Ontario. Sandwiched between Almonte, Smiths Falls and Ottawa. Possibly the most racist, homophobic town. No variety. Just white, Catholic, rich, conservative folk. The teenagers are all druggies and the adults are all losers who never made it out of the small town. At least they have tailgate parties.
"I'm a closeminded hick whos dream of leaving this stupid town never came true."

"So you're from Carleton Place?"

Carleton University chant:

There's a hole in the city, and its name is Ottawa U // And if you're dull and boring, then it's the place for you // And if you're into concrete, and ugly buildings too // Then welcome to Ottawa U

2-3-4

Fuck you, Ottawa U! // Fuck you, Ottawa U! // En francais, c'est fuckez vous! // Ottawa U // So fuck you, Ottawa U!
