I fell in love with this school the moment I stepped foot on campus. It has hard being a first gen student and not really knowing anyone or how to make friends in this new setting. The professors and the Res-Life staff were so helpful in the adjustments! You'll learn to have a love/hate relationship with the caf, but the views never get old.

I've only been at Carthage for a few weeks but I already love it. The teachers are so understanding and whenever I have a problem they always make sure to ask me about it. I love how we have small class sizes so the teachers are able to connect with me more and the campus is so beautiful. Being able to see the lake in the morning everyday is amazing. I was having a lot of doubts before I committed due to financial issues but I'm glad I get to call myself a Carthaginian!
IF YOU'RE CONSIDERING GOING TO CARTHAGE PLEASE READ MY REVIEW.
The professors are so great and are doing the best they can in this online school situation.
The campus is beautiful. Yes, it is small, but the buildings are so nice and modern. The dorms ARE ACTUALLY NICE. I'm in Denhart Hall and I love it. My roommate and I didn't have to do bunk beds by setting up one of our beds vertical and one of them horizontal. The bathrooms are nice, too. There's no AC, but if you get a fan you'll totally be fine.
The food at the Caf isn't great. They have good days and bad days. And that's why I'm only giving my review 4 stars. The other food is really good, like Baja, Starbucks, Einstein's, but you have only 400 points to spend on those per semester. You can use Caf points only at the Caf and at Lentz during lunch, and Lentz is actually good.
Carthage actually listens to their students. The things that need to change are changing, and they address the problems that need to be talked about.
