More About Carroll University
Carroll University is the oldest 4-year higher education institution in the state of Wisconsin. In fact, it was established as Carroll College prior to Wisconsin becoming a state in the 1840's. Carroll is always improving; since the arrival of Campus President, Dr. Douglas N. Hastad, the campus has seen many upgrades in the Fall of 2006. Some of these include: the change from "college" to "university" status, a new track was built, the Pioneer Hall dormatory was erected, enhancing renovations were done to the Campus Center and the the Main Lawn was improved.
Students seem to be very happy with all what their Campus Center has to offer (i.e. ATM, Recycling bins, caferteria and fast food restaurants, book store, public rest rooms, and more). The Campus Center also holds conference/meeting rooms, a ballroom, concert hall, radio station, information desk, events office, and the campus' public safety department.
See the University's website for more detailed information on the benefit of attending Caroll.
