Carthage College Reviews
Review Carthage College
Carthage College is a beautiful, small campus with a heavy focus on expanding the Liberal Arts education experience. They provide a wide variety of courses for students to choose from with great professors and thousands of advancement opportunities. The school is improving quality on campus every year and is attempting to modernize, which is especially impressive. However, it would be nice to see more diversity on campus, increased Asian and Hispanic populations would be nice. It would also be a great addition to have a Political and Social Science Center on campus so the non-natural science and language departments would have a place to call home for classes. Student activism and organizations on campus are plentiful and there are plenty of options for both Greek Life and other clubs, student life is really what this school prides itself in.
Carthage has a very positive environment. The population of students is very nice and easy to make friends. There are quiet areas in most of the buildings that are designed for studying. The campus is small, but very beautiful because of the view of Lake Michigan it offers. The class size is like an average class, with about 20-30 students, and it gives the students and professors more time to interact with one another. This helps students fully understand the content and have questions answered. Overall, Carthage is a great place to study and there are many great advantages that they have to offer to students.
I love Carthage! It is a small college that has big ties to the community. The teachers are fantastic and really are experts in their field. The students are very engaging and participate and help create many clubs and extracurricular. I will definitely choose Carthage again if I could do it over. However, the only thing that I will change is saving up and applying for more scholarships so I can afford the school.
