    “Every November, Japanese majors and minors put on a yearly cultural festival in the Todd Wehr Center with singing, dancing, plays, music, and even sword demonstrations. It’s always interesting, and no two years are the same.”

    “I am a member of the Athletic Training Club, Alpha Chi Omega, and Residence Life Council. These organizations gave me opportunities to be a leader. Being a member has opened up many doors for me already, and I cannot wait to see where they take me in life.”

    “The nursing community at Carthage is my second home. The students act as one big family. Whenever someone falls behind in class or is feeling under the weather, nursing students are always willing to help each other out in whatever way they can.”

    “I am a first-generation student and Carthage’s First in the Family Program helps prepare first-generation freshmen for college. Through this program, I met some of the most passionate and friendly students who I am lucky to call my friends.”

    “The small class sizes are incredibly enjoyable. I could not ever see myself going to a school where I felt anonymous in a lecture of 200 people. Carthage is a lot more one-on-one and allows students to get close with professors and classmates.”
