“I choose Carthage for the smaller size knowing that means I would be able to get to know professors as people, and I wouldn’t just be an ID number to them, which sometimes happens at large schools. The physics program here is amazing, with connections across the country that I’d hope would make for a great education and possibly help me find a job post-graduation. Lastly, I came to Carthage to continue my swimming career, and the pool faculty and the coaches were amazing.”
