“My biggest surprise so far at Carthage has been the extent of opportunities available to students. In just one year, I have been able to travel to the Caribbean, attend a dance conference in Minnesota, and choreograph a piece for the student dance show. I feel so grateful for all of these opportunities and am enthusiastic to experience even more in the years to come.”
