Psychology, Criminal Justice

“My first year at Carthage was amazing. I met a great group of friends through teams and organizations, and I can’t wait to meet more new people next year. I had a lot of fun my first year, but I also had to really study for the first time. To transition from high school to college, I had to create a budget for time, so that the freedom of living semi-independently wouldn’t get the best of me.“

Opportunities at Carthage

“I think an opportunity that is unique to a college the size of Carthage is that a student can join a wide variety of organizations, create an extensive personal network, and yet create strong bonds with other students and faculty.”

“Winning a CCIW gold medal in the backstroke, dancing at the orientation block party, and singing at CAB karaoke.”

Favorite spot on campus

“Madrigrano Hall, First Floor”

Biggest surprise so far

“That my professors are genuinely interested in my future, even if the professor isn’t teaching a class in my major.”

What would your 8-year-old self think of you now?

“When I was eight, I wanted to be a dentist. I’m pretty sure my 8-year-old self wouldn’t even understand what psychology is, so he would be pretty confused.”

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

“Don’t be afraid of your first neuroscience class. It’s new and scary, but it will teach you things you’ve always wondered about.”
