    Tips and Recommendations

    Plan some time to purchase books from the Carroll bookstore prior to or after the event. If purchasing them prior to the event, we recommend you have a place to store them rather than having to carry them with you. Plus, we provide a lot of extra things to carry during the program!

    Fall classes begin on Monday, Aug. 27, 2018.
