    “My experience at Carthage prepared me to be a strong, methodical thinker. I learned that an education (and eventually a career) is about much more than simply learning material. It is about integrating ideas and problem-solving. At Carthage, I was allowed to make mistakes in a safe environment, which in turn helped instill in me to be open to change, new ideas, and hard work.”

    “I think the best thing Carthage has to offer is its professors. I felt like each one of my professors had my well-being in mind. I felt like I was an individual personality, not just a face in a class. My professors always made time for me, even when they weren’t in my major. I could stop in an office and contemplate life or assignments and then make jokes about both. I owe a lot to my mentors.”
