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.
