    Individual Visits

    • Schedule an individual visit to campus to see what Carthage is all about.

      Arrange a personalized tour on a day that is convenient for you. See our up-close view of Lake Michigan, check out our top-notch facilities, stroll past Kissing Rock, and sit down with a member of our faculty. 

      Individual visits include student-led campus tour and meeting with an admissions director. During fall, January, and spring terms, we can arrange for you to sit in on a class. Year-round, we offer opportunities to meet with professors or coaches. If possible, give us two weeks notice, so we can make sure you see everything that is important to you.

      Individual visits are typically held Monday-Friday, with campus tours offered at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m.
