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.

  • 14 Conferences, 9 Countries represented, 8 years of dedication, and 1 organization that’s changed my life forever. Today I finished my Model United Nations career winning Exceptional Representation of the USA with the best partner I could’ve ever asked for. The icing on the cake, Carthage College took home an all around outstanding representation of the United States. I honestly still can’t believe how phenomenal this feels. || Model UN forever #amun2015 #mun #modelunitednations #chicago #carthageviews #carthagecollege #winning #classy @nicholas_patsy

  • Today we took a big step as a program by taking 3rd in our conference for the first time since 1977. We ran with nationally ranked teams and from our first to the last guy we made a statement that Carthage XC is tougher and has more heart than any team in the CCIW. Each one of these men are my brothers and I would never trade my time with them for anything else in the entire cosmos. #riseoftheredmen #rise #thegreatest #carthageviews _the_man_with_the_plan_

November I came here to sleep after being up since 4 am for my dad’s hip replacement surgery and I still had 3 hrs of class left. March I sat here and decided to change my major and my course of life. Now today I’m here killing time waiting for my ride, totally a different person from when I began #college #employed #studied #publishedPoet #engaged #collegelife  #carthage #carthageviews @natsukomaiko

  • Meet Brittney, a senior studying Criminal Justice and French/Spanish. Brittney is one of our captains and joined mock trial to gain hands-on experience with the law and because of her interest in public speaking, law and of course, arguing. When she’s not working on mock trial, she’s busy in multiple academic honoraries, tutoring students in business law and exploring Chicago. After Carthage, she plans on going to law school in the city to focus on Civil Litigation. Her favorite part of mock trial?: “Giving opening statements and presenting a story to the jury. And getting the defendant to admit on the stand that she committed the crime.” #roadtogreenville #amta #carthageviews @carthage_mocktrial
  • 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.

  • 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.

    • Our Summer Undergraduate Research Experience offers select students a research budget, one-on-one mentoring with a professor, and 10 weeks of analyzing, deciphering — and getting paid.

    • So the lake is kind of a focal point, but there’s a lot more to love about our campus — like the fact that our 80-acre campus is also an arboretum and wildlife sanctuary. Focused on keeping campus lush forever, we plant between 50 and 75 new trees every year from a variety of species.

    • Carthage was founded in 1847. That’s more than 170 years of leaders, makers, and go-getters going out and going forth. Read more about Carthage’s rich history.

    • More than 90 percent of our students receive financial aid, a hefty chunk of which is scholarships and grants — including $1.25 million annually from the Presidential Scholarship Competition and numerous Merit Scholarships. Learn what’s available.

    • Abraham Lincoln was an early Trustee of the College, and U.S. Secretary of State John Hay was a Carthage alum. The two still have a proud place on our campus. Spend some time with them in our Sesquicentennial Plaza. On warm days you’ll find professors leading their classes here.
