2 College Junior

Scholarships: I have to apply to Financial Aid every semester for school and I run into problems/issues every time without fail. It is always a very long stressful process that requires multiple phone calls and meetings with people that eventually help me in getting the FAFSA I need which is very much appreciated in the end. I wish the whole financial aid process was a lot easier and ran a lot more smoothly for me though I must say.

Athletics: Athletics are a huge part of Carthage College. Close to 50% of the students participate in a sport and therefore the fan support is outstanding. Carthage also always tends to make it excel in a particular sport during every season and the student body does a great job of coming together and supporting every team. The amazing sporting facilities also adds to the great experience athletics bring to Carthage.

Campus Housing: The on campus dorm rooms are not bad at all, it is very easy to socialize with the surrounding students, get homework done if you do not wish to go to the library, and rely on the Resident Assistants if you need help with anything. Cost is the only downside in my opinion to on campus living, FAFSA does not always cover on campus housing for me and therefore makes it very difficult for me to come up with the adequate funds to cover my total bill.

Greek Life: I personally attempted to join a sorority and actually got in but after the first meeting I went to I decided that Greek life was not for me. My personal opinion after attending that first meeting and observing other Greek life organizations on campus was that Greek life can be a very exclusive group of people who tend to stick to their own kind while judging others who are not apart of their org. I also think that Greek life has some perks to it tho, you are able to form life long bond with people all over the world as well as put yourself out there and get involved in the College activities.

Campus Dining: Carthage College unfortunately has only a few on campus dining options. A positive to our on campus dining is that there is a wide variety of food to choose from whether that be tacos, burgers, subs, bagels, frozen yogurt, or the all encompassing cafeteria food. The meal plan that our college offers tends to raise some issues because most students find that they do not have enough meal points to get them through the week and therefore are forced to go off campus and eat or spend money at a grocery store and eat in their own dorm room.

Off-Campus Dining: Carthage College is slightly secluded from all the great restaurants that Kenosha, WI has to offer. This can be looked at as a negative but it does not stop us Carthage students from hopping in out cars and driving a little out of our way for a good meal. Since there is such a wide variety of places to eat cost and variety is never a harsh factor in the decision making process. There is only one restaurant in all of Kenosha that I know of that gives you a student discount which is upsetting to me because there are so many other options in the large town of Kenosha as well as multiple other colleges that you would think more restaurants would advertise and offer student discounts.

College Freshman

Diversity: Don't start til Aug 2014

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I haven't started yet until August 2014.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Kenosha doesn't have many nightlife options but when you get a good group together every once in awhile, it is a lot of fun.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The cafeteria food is alright, it gets pretty old. But they have other options in the student union that are always good and open late.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I like the Greek Life at Carthage because it isn't what I thought a typical Frat or Sorority was. They have academic and volunteering greek houses. They are very social and don't seem to be very cliquey

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus and the campus security is always roaming around and very visible

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is very friendly and outgoing. Of course you have some conflict between peers but nothing majorly dramatic

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The cost of living is proportionate to the living space.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They are very strict if you don't have a parking permit or are creating a disturbance

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I love the scenery. The school is located right on the lake but as for a local town, I come from Chicago and they are very different, even fro Chicago suburbs

1 College Junior

Campus Dining: It's disgusting what food they offer and how it's handled. The only time there is a good quality of food is if it is a tour day.

2 College Junior

Campus Strictness: It's always unfair. Athletes get out of most punishments if they have some sort of connection. Whereas straight A students can't find a way out of trouble if they get caught one time.

1 College Junior

Campus Housing: It is disgusting. For example, my sophomore year for the majority of the school year the bathroom above my floor leaked into the hallway. My dad is plumber and let me tell you I know for a fact how disgusting that is. The laundry is nearly inaccessible and the bathrooms are gross and outdated. Carthage needs to step it up before they build a new science building.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: We don't have greek housing and we have very unsuccessful greek weeks. The recruitment and pledging processes are continually overlooked and need more attention.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I am still living on campus.
