Alyssa Vargas ?22 on a study tour in India.

Allyssa Vargas ’22

Major: Nursing
Minor: Spanish

I had the incredible opportunity to participate in a J-Term study tour in India, led by biology professor Margaret Wentzell. This was truly the most amazing experience I’ve ever had. The title of the course was Health Care in India: Traditional and Non-Traditional Healing. Over 16 days, we explored the bustling city of New Delhi and the ancient city of Varanasi, and learned about the impact of different religious beliefs on health care. … I created so many amazing memories that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Major: Physics
Minor: Mathematics

My first J-Term at Carthage, I had the privilege of traveling to Japan with the Carthage Wind Orchestra. Additionally, I participated in the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience, where I gained invaluable experience and developed professional relationships with my professors. Thanks to their very strong letters of recommendation, I earned an undergraduate research fellowship at the MD Anderson Cancer Center. I have since published my research in the American Association of Physicists in Medicine’s Medical Physics Journal. Students who are willing to put effort into research will find themselves greatly supported by professors at Carthage.

My favorite class so far has been Microeconomics with Prof. Erik Johnson. I really enjoy his style of teaching. He keeps the class engaged by doing labs and looking into real-world examples of what we are learning. The professors at Carthage take the time to understand who you are as a student and as a person outside the classroom. They genuinely want what’s best for you. I can feel a sense of community, and it makes being a student so much more engaging.

Carthage professors’ passion for teaching is easy to spot. You’ll often see professors staying after class to make sure students have grasped the material. And while every professor has office hours, students learn fast that professors are always available to help.

Carthage is, at its heart, a liberal arts college, meaning students are encouraged to explore, try new disciplines, and seek out connections between disciplines as they become well-rounded, prepared adults.
