Even though we’re nestled in a setting that hasn’t changed much since the last ice age—and we have 168 years under our belt as an institution—our facilities and resources look sparkling new. That’s because they are. Our athletic and recreation center, student union, computer labs, audiovisual production suite, and numerous residence halls have all been constructed or newly renovated in the last 10 years. And our soon-to-be-finished science center caps it off.
Living on campus provides some of the most memorable moments of your college experience. Carthage’s residence halls offer an exciting environment for living and learning. Our halls provide easy access to educational programs, leadership opportunities, and a full calendar of social activities. See building hours

Carthage has glass-walled classrooms that host both business and religion courses, a 65,000 sq. ft. modern library that has ancient documents and cutting-edge technology, a building that houses a green house and two theatres, and another that allows you to practice a sonata and then take a class about World War II in the same hallway. You’ll be exposed to different ideas from different subjects just by the act of entering into any of our academic buildings. See building hours
