How have Carthage faculty had an impact on your life or Carthage career?
“One professor who has had an impact on my Carthage career is Professor Gregory Barron. With his new J-Term course, Introduction to Sports Management and Marketing, I am finally declaring my major as management and marketing. Once I discovered this class was available to freshmen, I knew I had to take the opportunity to start a career in something my life drives off of — sports.”
Favorite moments and memories at Carthage
“Some of my favorite memories are of the football games. Tailgating with my family for homecoming and showing my family around campus is always a prideful experience for me. I also love making new friends by simply keeping my door open in my dorm.”
Favorite spot on campus
“My favorite spot on campus is the N. E. Tarble Athletic and Recreation Center because I love walking through and looking at student-athletes perfecting their sport and their position in the sport. Seeing the physical dedication of the athletes is inspiring.”
Biggest surprise so far
