Investment in the College’s infrastructure is arguably one of the most effective ways of investing in the long-term future of the College.
Nearly two decades of sustained growth in the student body have necessitated a plan for expansion of facilities to meet the needs of those students. During the last decade, Carthage has invested more than $150 million in developing best-of-class learning, residential and recreational facilities. These development initiatives comprise significant new construction, as well as many renovations and improvements.
New construction and renovations are undertaken not just with the next few years in mind, but with an eye on the next century, as well. These are facilities that will withstand the test of time. Their initial price is considerable, but in the long run, they are a tremendous bargain. Future donors need not worry about replacing what our generation will have left to them.
