Favorite class

“My favorite classes at Carthage have been the two Spanish classes I have taken in my time here. Both have been with Professor Caitlin Quintenz, and I really enjoy learning more about Spanish language and culture in her classes.”

Toughest class

“My toughest class at Carthage has been Ceramics, which I am taking this semester. It has been a lot of fun and a nice creative outlet; however, I am not very talented in the arts and have had to work harder to do well.”

Campus involvement

“I am involved in many clubs and organizations on campus. Last semester, I joined Mi Gente, the Pi Sigma Epsilon Business Fraternity, and Habitat for Humanity. I am involved in the same organizations this semester and joined the Book Club and Soccer Club on campus.”

Favorite spot on campus

“My favorite spot on campus changes from time to time. For studying, I love sitting in Straz by the windows that provide great lighting and a beautiful view of the lake

Favorite memory

“Favorite Carthage moments and memories include the late nights with friends spent studying or just hanging out on campus!”
