If you’re reading this message, that can only mean one thing: that you have won the dorm lottery. You have been assigned to Carroll Hall, the most unique, picturesque, and handsome dorm on campus. In the coming months, you will get to see the many traditions that make the Carroll community so special. From sand volleyball games and cookouts on Carroll Lawn (that’s right, we have our own lawn) to the glorious seasonal event known as Carroll Christmas, Carroll has so much to offer. From this day forward you are a part of this community, and we could not be happier to welcome you to it. Welcome home, Carroll ‘26.Aidan and Teddy
The GentleVermin collection is a set of 150 unique digital collectibles built around the Carroll Hall community. Wether you are an incoming first year, current resident or alumni, your GentleVermin is your connection to our community! In classic ‘All are most welcome here’ fashion, these are completely free – all you need to do is screenshot whichever one you like and use it however you like!
Developed by Carroll’s own Vaibhav Arora, the GentleVermin are here to provide a way for Carroll’s community to show their membership. Whether they are used for profile pictures or any other aspect, these “EFTs” (Extremely Fungible Tokens) are here for use for anyone who may feel part of our community.
Welcome to Carroll Hall! We’re so incredibly excited for you all to join our Carroll Family. Over this fall semester, we look forward to sharing our traditions, culture, and brotherhood with YOU, our newest Vermin! We might be the smallest dorm on campus, but we think you’ll find the Lakeside Estate to be a truly special place (we’re the best 100 guys!). As our motto says, “All Our Most Welcome” in Carroll Hall––especially YOU! Welcome to Carroll! We can’t wait to meet all of you!
On behalf of the men of Carroll Hall, we would like to welcome you to Carroll Hall, the Lakeside Estate. You have truly won the residence hall lottery. Carroll is home to the self-proclaimed “best 100 guys,” a term that we Ver-men take great pride in. The setting of our hall creates a deep sense of community and brotherhood unique to Carroll. For both of us, Carroll immediately became home. You have been selected to live within a community unlike any other dorm. In our completely unbiased opinion, we host two of the greatest signature events(A Carroll Christmas and Lakeside Music Festival), and have a dorm wide camaraderie that no other residence hall can match. Many of our favorite memories have come in the Carroll first floor lounge on a random weekday night just hanging out with whatever fellow vermin happen to be there, and some of our closest friendships have grown through the exaggerated “super long” walk to campus. We love all Carroll traditions, both official and unofficial, and they make bonding with fellow Vermin easy. Many of the unique features that Carroll possesses may appear as negatives from an outside perspective, but once you live here you realize they generate the perfect storm of circumstances to create something truly special.
You will learn more about what it means to be a Vermin when you arrive in August but the website should cover the basics. As you prepare to move into school in the coming weeks we know you will have plenty of questions, and you will be hearing from us in the future to answer some of those. Until then, we want to wish you a huge congratulations on finding your new home in Carroll, the 2019-20 Hall of the Year(the only ranking system that matters, all the other websites you will inevitably read are wrong). The two of us speak for all of the Carroll Hall Community when we say that we are incredibly excited to welcome you into your new home.
Congratulations, and welcome home,
Tom Monroe and Conlan Jarvis
President & Vice President
Information regarding the 2020-2021 academic year will be updated soon. Thank you for your patience.
It was a pleasure seeing many of you during move-in week. The beginning of the year is an exciting time for us as staff. We accept all with open arms, and are able witness a diverse group of students become Vermin brothers.
Three weeks of school down, and our hall community is back in the swing of things:
- We had Professor Asís Martinez-Jerez from the Accounting Department lead a discussion on how to survive and flourish at Notre Dame.
- Eric unveiled Jackson (his new dog who lives in the Hall) to students.
- We have had record attendance at Chris’ 3rd floor abs on Wednesdays.
- We have had great weather for each of the first three Carroll cookouts this year.
- We streamed the Mayweather-McGregor fight. So much for the luck of the Irish.
- We painted and raised a new banner for the Temple game.
Welcome to the new website for Carroll Hall! Look around and check us out.
The Regatta may be Fisher’s event, but as always, the Vermin did very well this year.
Vermin Christian Cyrul has been waiting all year for the opportunity to pie somebody, anybody. Vermin (16-17) President Andrew Rebholz happened to be available.
