Carthage College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
Carthage College has a beautiful campus right next to Lake Michigan. They just redid many of the freshman dorms, and have an option where you share a bathroom with one other student in the Oaks dormitory. Food selection is great; salad bar, comfort food, wraps etc. It is an all you can eat deal, which is different than many other colleges. I was on two sports teams, and the coaches really understand that your grades come first. The amazing recreational area that was redone the year before I graduated. Academics are amazing, they only hire teachers who want to focus on teaching. However, that can be a downside for those looking to go to graduate school. You will need to find an undergraduate research program ASAP. To be honest I am not a big fan of their grading system. If you get an A-, it is different than an A. This becomes a problem when going to graduate school, med school, or Law because you will be competing with people who got 90% but was given a 4.0, and you will have a 95, and it will be a 3.75. Although this school is religiously affiliated, I wouldn't worry too much about it. It is not pushy in any way shape or form. You have to take religion but many courses qualify as it. I took a class on how people deal with losses to satisfy it.
Wonderful experience. Great professors and wonderful guidence from school
I loved my school, I started at a state college and going to this school was so much better than a commuter college, I felt very isolated at state college, this school had a lot more going on.
It's a good school with a lot to get involved in on campus. Be prepared for a lot of "suitcase" students, as there tends to be nothing to do on the weekends.
I can honestly say I wouldn't have a job today if it were not for Carthage. I gained amazing experience through my internship, got the opportunity to build working relationships with multiple police departments in the Kenosha area and got to learn from some of the most qualified professors in my field who were more than willing to help with anything that I needed. I gained great leadership experience and made lifelong friends through the on campus clubs and organizations that I was involved in and helped raise over $100,000 for cancer research in my three years with Colleges Against Cancer. I would not be the person I am today had I not gone to Carthage, and for that I am forever grateful.
