"Carthage is a very pretty school, given that it is right on the banks of Lake Michigan, but many of the buildings are falling apart, either dont heat or dont cool properly, some areas of campus and some areas of buildings will float when there are excessive rains. Additionally, in terms of programs, Carthage is unclear about what options you have. I have in my 3rd year when someone had hold me that they designed their own program major to participate in- which was never an option I was informed about."

"I believe that as an institution Carthage is a great school. Faculty members do care about your academics and extracurricular activities that you are involved in. Unfortunately, I did not feel prepared when applying to graduate programs. I felt that I had to pave my own way to get to where I am right now, without assistance from the faculty in my department. I helped reestablish Pre-OT club so that other students did not have to feel lost or unaccounted for during their time at Carthage. I feel that I did a lot on my own, but hope I raised enough concern for those who are underclassmen that they feel that they can seek help and get those answers that they need to success post undergrad."

"Carthage was a unique experience for me as I had attended both as a traditional student for my psychology major as well as a non-traditional student in their Accelerated, 7-week format for my Criminal Justice Degree all while working a full-time, 3rd shift job as a 911 dispatcher. I can say that several things stand out in my memory regarding Carthage. The faculty and the courses were top-notch. Not only was the curriculum incredibly diverse, but the offerings were incredibly in-depth to prepare me for my specific goals after my time at Carthage (graduate studies). I felt as though I had a large university's faculty at my disposal with class sizes smaller than those I had in high school. What that got me was the ability to get help when I needed it, such as when struggling through coursework or requiring tutoring, and an ability to be remembered. That, in turn, got me fantastic letters of recommendation as well as a faculty that knew me and guided me from the path I "thought I wanted" to the path I am on now. I will say you get what you put into it. Carthage is not the type of institution to offer easy As or simply ensure everyone who shows up passes. That was not the case, as I had to repeat several courses. In addition, the aid for students without any particularly strong merit is limited with regards to finance. So, expect a lot of debt. However, if you do the research and know what you want for a career or for graduate studies, Carthage will get you there if you are ready to do the work. I have gotten into a doctoral program and two masters programs. Despite my dislike of "ring tapping" and waiving prestige around, it does have a solid reputation that is impressive to interview committees. In the end, do the research and compare to similar schools in size, geography, and offerings. You will not find a better investment."

"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."
