Carol was a student at Hawkins High. She dated Tommy H, and was a friend of Steve Harrington and Nicole. According to classmate Barbara Holland, Carol and Tommy had been "having sex since, like, seventh grade".
The same group of teens - minus Barb, who had mysteriously vanished - hung out together at school in the days after the party. Nancy, however, became concerned about Barb's disappearance, and gradually became less active in the group.
When Jonathan Byers was revealed to have been at the scene of the party, hiding in the foliage and taking photographs, Carol assisted Tommy and Steve in breaking his camera and tearing up his photographs.
Steve decided to check up on Nancy, as he was worried about her - Tommy and Carol teased him for caring. They drove to the Wheeler house, where Steve got out and climbed up the roof, aiming to enter Nancy's bedroom via the window. Steve saw Nancy and Jonathan together, and mistakenly came to the conclusion that they were sleeping together.
The next day, Steve, Tommy, Carol and Nicole graffiti-ed abusive, obscene slurs against the walls of the Hawk Theater. This led to a fist-fight, with Jonathan beating up Steve. The police came to the scene to arrest them all, but Steve, Tommy, Carol and Nicole escaped.
While outside a petrol station, Steve decided to turn his back on Tommy and Carol, deeming them to be "assholes". After Tommy threatened to fight him, Steve got in his car and drove off to apologise to Nancy and Jonathan.
