    I enjoy that it is a small college. I also particularly enjoy the atmosphere of the lake in the summer and fall. Its a beautiful campus and I enjoy being outdoors. It is also quite peaceful. Not only that but for the most part the professors are friendly and enjoyable as well as the students.

    I love the small size of the campus. Its nice because I just need to walk down to our new Union and I will very likely see someone I know either from class or just a friend. The setting of the campus is great, and is relaxing, despite the extreme cold of the winter. I love the students, and ALL of the buildings are well kept and nice, because they spend money on that and so we get buildings that are not falling apart and that look nice.

    The scenery is gorgeous; I had a fantastic lake view from my dorm in my freshman year. There is also a lot to do on campus; nearly every weekend there is some type of event happening, whether it be a movie, a play, a comedian, a concert, etc. If there isn't something going on, you can always catch the Metra to Chicago or just get together with friends. Otherwise, getting involved in some of the many organizations on campus can help fill in that extra down time as well.

    There are many opportunities at Carthage. Not only in the clubs, extracurriculars, and greek like but there are movie nights, comedians, and fun events planned on the weekend courtesy of C.A.B. Plus tons of famous people have came to Carthage and performed. In addition the tickets are only 10 bucks for students. SUCH A DEAL!

    Not only is it beautiful, but the people are wonderful. I have not met a single grumpy or unfriendly person in all of my times at the college or at college events, and I've been there a lot! I'm betting that I will just fall in love with the campus and enjoy every minute of it! (Even more so, because I already adore the campus)
