  • In Their Words: Hear From Faculty, Alumni, and Current Students — Is Carthage Worth It? — Carthage College
    growth of their students Alumni Isa Fritz 10 Physics Alumna Orbit Dynamics Researcher and Engineer At Carthage I learned really awesome tools of the trade for aerospace engineering specifically in systems engineering When I went for interviews with companies they seemed really impressed by the amount of stuff that s usable on my undergraduate resume They would ask You did that in your physics program You did that in your undergrad Isaac Rothenbaum 11 Computer Science Alumnus Software Engineer In graduate school at Carnegie Mellon Isaac s fellow students came from Princeton MIT and other well known institutions He soon came to realize that the education he received at Carthage was on par or better than the prestigious schools his peers attended It didn t take long for me to realize that I knew as much as they did he said It was refreshing to realize that my education could compete with the best of them Amber Petersen 08 Biology Alumna Graduate Student Carthage gave Ms Petersen the foundation for her to succeed in graduate school she said She believes small class sizes and the emphasis on lab work in biology and chemistry gave her an advantage More importantly the instructors at Carthage proved to be outstanding mentors who were always willing to work with me outside of classes so I could follow my interests and develop a passion for research science Kathryn Lamberton Boero 77 Education Alumna Head of the Primary School at The Prairie School in Racine Wis I loved and continue to love the small personal learning community environment at Carthage Mrs Boero said I feel each time I take a class at Carthage creativity and individuality are nurtured in combination with a strong dedication to learning best practices for educating children which I draw on daily Leah Stuhlmacher Steger 04 German Business Administration and Marketing Alumna Director of Marketing Person to Person at Jockey International I was ingrained in a community that offered so much academically athletically and socially Mrs Steger says Carthage brought out an academic quality in me that I didn t know I had Professors and staff were always approachable and always had open doors even without an appointment Current Students Ann O Leary 14 Biology and neuroscience double major To have a professor write a letter of recommendation is one thing but when a professor is able to talk about your character drive and personality that makes their letter that much stronger As I begin to apply for graduate schools I am so thankful for the connections I have created while here at Carthage and the experiences that have been available to me Alex Nelson 14 Biology and music double major Carthage s SURE program is extremely beneficial for students who plan to attend graduate school or medical school as research experience stands out on applications and shows that those students can apply what they learn in the classroom to real life scientific research experiments Not many other small liberal arts colleges
