    Carthage is very expensive.

    Carthage offers many perks to its students. There is a free shuttle service that will take students to the off campus student parking lots, the train station, and a nearby shopping plaza. There are also activities available every week: movie showings every weekend, comedians, hypnotists, contests, game nights, there is always something to do.
