Life at Carthage

#carthageviews are so much more than pretty pictures of the lake or a shot at the sunset. They’re an exhibition of what Carthage is through the myriad lenses of students, alumni and faculty. They’re a selfie. They’re a photo of notes taken in class. They’re a shot of old classmates coming together for homecoming.

Here are your #carthageviews of life at Carthage.

  • Graduated college yesterday. So happy to spend the day with my family and friends!! #carthagegrad#carthageviews @fpaulsen92
  • This photo was from the last day of the semester for me as a senior. It was so bittersweet…I will never ever forget the peaceful moments I had sitting in the chapel and just being still, or playing my violin and just letting the acoustics take over and take me to a different place. Carthage, I’m gonna miss you. Thank you for helping me grow and become a stronger woman. #carthageviews #graduation #senior #chapel #magic #peace #serenity #carthage15 #music #Godlistens #justbestill @neppera

  • As graduation comes to a close, I look back on my four years in this beautiful place. Carthage has transformed me into many things, among them a strong, confident, and smarter woman. The people I have met helped shape me with new perspectives and values. Among everything I learned, perhaps one of the most important things is that it’s ok to say “I don’t know” because those three words create a yearning to discover answers. Thank you, Carthage.

Other then English and French, DaQuawn has a working knowledge of Latin, ASL, and Mandarin.

  • Quick Facts

    • Carthage is named a Best Midwestern College by The Princeton Review (2017), a designation given to only 25 percent of four-year schools.

    • Scheduled to open in fall 2018, a new residential tower will offer suite-style housing and two floors of shared campus spaces for gaming, cooking, group meetings, or quiet studying. Learn more about The Tower

    • You’re going to need brain fuel. Grab a morning coffee and a snack and Starbucks or Einstein Bros. Bagels. Later, meet friends at “The Caf,” where the specials change daily but the staples are constant, or swing through “The Stu” for wins, a burrito, or a sub. A new option, Carthage Cash, even covers some off-campus meals.

    • 96% of Carthage alumni report that they have secured a job or are continuing their studies six months after graduation. Visit Career Services.

    • 91% of employers say critical thinking, communication, and problem-solving skills matter more than your major when it comes to career success. Learn more about how the liberal arts prepare you for a successful career.

    • Lots of schools wear the four-year label. Carthage stands behind it. 95% of Carthage graduates earn their degrees in four years. Learn more

    • Oscars. Emmys. Tonys. Golden Globes. The playwrights we’ve brought in have them. Each year, the Carthage Theatre Department commissions an original script by a renowned playwright for its New Play Initiative. Carthage students then work with the writer to stage it. 

    • As a freshman in the highly selective Honors Program, learn how to gain expertise in anything from music to forest ecology. After that, tackle a contemporary social, economic, or political problem. If you like, you can live on an Honors-only floor of a Carthage residence hall. 

    • In 2016 and 2017, Carthage was named a top producer of Fulbright Scholars by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

    • Things look new at Carthage because they are. Our athletic and recreation center, student union, computer labs, audiovisual production suite, and numerous residence halls have all been constructed or newly renovated in the last 10 years. Our new science center caps it off.

    • Carthage offers majors, minors and concentrations in more than 50 areas of study, from archaeology to athletic training, neuroscience to music theatre.
