What Students Are Saying

3.86 Average Rating
Carthage College is an extraordinary college providing extraordinary experiences. As a freshman I'm able to play competitive athletics in first rate athletic facilities, conduct research in biology, and travel abroad, while getting to know great people, enjoying good food, feeling safe, and having profesors that really care; I can't imagine going anywhere else; I definitely made the right choice!

The campus is a very beautiful place to be. Small student body but everyone seemed very friendly. Staff and students are very forward about wanting to help you.
