What Students Are Saying

3.86 Average Rating
Carthage is about meeting new people and feeding off others ideas and outlooks on life. In most traditional colleges an intellectual development is highly stressed, but here you are encouraged to grow spiritually , socially, and emotionally into a vibrant contributor to society. Last if all students are heavily guided with classes but taught to enjoy the relaxed setting the college creates.

I like the liberal arts aspect of Carthage College. I have been able to try many different types of classes that help me to know what I am interested in studying. They are very good at leading students in the right direction.
