Just Lunch

Twice a term the Center for Faith and Spirituality hosts this favorite event for students. It is just what it says it is: Just Lunch. A fresh hot lunch is available in the front lobby of Siebert Chapel and can be enjoyed at one of the tables in the lobby or in Ehrler Hospitality Center. Students are greeted by CFS student staff and invited to free lunch. Watch The Bridge for upcoming events. 

On Purpose - Fall, J-term and Spring reflection program

On Purposeis a program that invites the Carthage community to explore big questions about who we are and what our lives are calling us to do. Through self-reflection, intentional thinking and conversations, and opportunities to take action, students grow into their vocations and build purposeful, meaningful lives - not by chance, but by design, On Purpose.   Information and registration will be posted on The Bridge.  Contact Holly Hess at
