The Northern part of the United States is certainly blessed with an abundance of highly rated liberal arts colleges. Two of the top ranked liberal arts colleges in the North are both located in the state of Minnesota.
Carleton College located in the small town of Northfield, Minnesota is one of the highest rated liberal arts colleges in the entire United States. In fact, U.S. News and World Report has placed Carleton College in its top ten list of all liberal arts colleges in America.
According to Carleton College’s website, the current student enrollment is just under two thousand students. Carleton provides small average class sizes of under twenty students. The college maintains a highly selective admissions process.
Another top liberal arts college also located in Minnesota is Macalester College in Saint Paul.

Macalester College is one of the most selective colleges in the country with an admission rate of only thirty-two percent.
