    “My favorite class here at Carthage would have to be any of the creative writing classes. I’ve had two or three of these classes now, all with Professor Rick Meier. He’s an outstanding professor, and the classes allow me to explore my passion for writing and expand my creativity.”

    “Gorgeous lake view aside, I loved the small classes. Having a small class means that each and every student has the opportunity for hands-on learning — something that you may not receive in a class of 50 people.”

    “Going to a small school creates the opportunity for one-on-one work that a big school doesn’t provide, and I’m so thankful for the professors that have taken the time to work through my writing with me.”
