Carleton College is a private liberal arts college located in Northfield, Minnesota. It has about 2,000 students and is consistently ranked in the top 10 U.S. News and World Report Best Liberal Arts Colleges. Named for benefactor William Carleton shortly after its founding in 1866, it has risen from the small congregational school that Thorstein Veblen attended to become what the Chicago Daily Tribune described in 1961 as a "little Harvard."
