    “I have formed many cordial relationships with professors both inside and outside my two departments of study. Moreover, I always feel like I can have a friendly and honest conversation with any professor I meet. The campus itself provides many opportunities to meet with faculty, both inside and outside of class.”

    “I chose Carthage because, coming from a town with a large state university, I knew a large class size was not for me. I did not want to get lost in a crowd of students, and I knew that creating relationships with faculty and other students was important for me.”

    “The small class sizes at Carthage allowed me to develop a more impactful relationship with professors, which made me more comfortable speaking up in class when I didn’t understand something or when I felt passionate about a topic.”
