NileGuide Expert tip:
The campus is home to a community radio station, CKCU, located at 93.1 FM. Many volunteers at CKCU went on to bigger and better things including Dan Aykroyd!
Carleton University is one of those welcoming academic institutions that offers something for everyone, from summer sports camps for kids to advanced degrees in engineering. Visitors can enjoy a range of amusements and events, many of them free. Because of the university's strong programs in political science and journalism, it's a popular place for authors to promote books with free talks. The Carleton University Art Gallery presents small but often cutting-edge exhibitions with free admission and lectures. And the campus itself is a lovely place to stroll. Even though most of the buildings are not pretty (many were built between the 1950s and the 1970s), the university is located in a gorgeous setting between the Rideau Canal
and the Rideau River, opposite the Central Experimental Farm
