How have Carthage faculty had an impact on your life or Carthage career?

“I have really amazing relationships with my professors. They care so much about my success and go to great lengths to help me achieve my goals. Professors Erik Johnson, Ron Cronovich, Pascal Rollet, and Erik Kulke have given me integral advice on my career path.”

Favorite class

“Economics of Poverty and Income Inequality was a class that really opened my eyes to the causes of many key societal problems.”

Campus involvement

“I’ve been on the Blitz Ultimate Frisbee Team since my freshman year. It is such a fun game, and it has brought me so much joy and helped me manage the stress of classes. I’ve also participated in Philosophy Club, which is a great place to have deep discussions.”

Toughest class

French classes are tough. It includes all the work of your other classes, but you have to do it all in another language. If you can push yourself through it, though, there is a huge payoff.”

Internships or on-campus employment

“I was an economics tutor my sophomore year and transitioned into being the outreach coordinator for the Tutoring Center. I am also a sustainability intern, so I get to work on projects to make our campus more sustainable.”

Opportunities at Carthage

“I went on a J-Term study tour to Costa Rica to learn Spanish my sophomore year. It’s such a beautiful country, and everyone in our group had an amazing experience. Next year, I am studying abroad in Senegal for an entire year!

“I also got a grant to work on a Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) project in the field of economics.”

Scholarships

“With the help of Prof. Kulke, I applied for the Boren Scholarship and Gilman Scholarship, which are scholarships from the federal government. I was fortunate enough to receive both, and they are paying for me to study abroad.”

Favorite spot on campus

“The red cushy chairs by the windows in the back of the David A. Straz Jr. Center are the best.”

Why should other students consider your major? What advice do you have for them?

“Economics is an advantageous field for problem solving, and the economics professors at Carthage are incredibly attentive and helpful.”

Why Carthage?

“I wanted to attend a liberal arts education at a small school that offered the majors I was interested in and emphasized the importance of study abroad.”
