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.

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 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"
