4 REASONS TO LOVE OUR LOCATION

No. 1: KENOSHA

Kenosha is Wisconsin’s fourth-largest city, home to a vibrant arts scene, live music, outdoor festivals, shopping centers, farmers markets, museums, and more. Downtown Kenosha is located minutes from campus.

No. 2: CHICAGO

Jump on the Metra (the train station is a quick car, bus, or Uber ride from campus), and soon you’ll be in the middle of everything Chicago has to offer!

No. 3: MILWAUKEE

Take in a Milwaukee Bucks or Milwaukee Brewers game, try a new restaurant, or visit a museum. Milwaukee is also home to the world-famous Summerfest music festival along with concert venues that draw big-name musicians and comedians year-round.

No. 4: JOB OPPORTUNITIES & INTERNSHIPS

Thanks to our location in the thriving Milwaukee-Chicago corridor, Carthage students gain real-world experience while you’re still in school through internships, and find permanent employment in the endless opportunities nearby.
