Join us for the public kick-off of Carthage’s yearlong celebration commemorating 150 years of enrolling women. Our launch event will feature an immersive timeline that highlights the women and moments unique to our College. President John Swallow and his wife Cameron Swallow will address how the 150 Years of Carthage Women Celebration enables us as a community to not only reflect on and celebrate our past but to intensify our commitment to the next generation of Carthage women. The Celebration co-chairs, Gina Madrigrano Friebus and Maria Markusen, along with the 77 women on our volunteer committee, invite you to join trustees, current students, celebrated alumni, and current and former faculty members as we kick-off this exciting year!
