  • In Their Words: Sohayla Horani — Is Carthage Worth It? — Carthage College
    even with a rigorous workload I could still be a student athlete The second factor that made Carthage appealing was the small class sizes After sitting in on a small class I realized that such an environment was exactly what I wanted for my college experience All the students in the class knew each other by name and everybody participated in the professor s lecture It was the exact opposite of the stereotypical college lecture with a hall full of uninterested students and it really exemplified the college experience I was after Because education is so paramount to what I want to do I knew that whichever undergraduate institution I selected it would be the foundation for the rest of my life With Carthage I recognized that the small class sizes would allow me to really grasp any subject I was studying since the professors would be able to guide me whenever I sought help Now after three semesters at Carthage I know I made the right decision Not only have I developed close bonds with a lot of my professors but I also know that they are just as invested in my education as I am When I need help on assignments they are more than willing to help me and that kind of individual attention is quite possibly the most valuable thing Carthage can offer I can t stress enough how reassuring it is to know that my professors are literally just down the street and have the time and commitment to help me thoroughly understand various topics Furthermore the way most professors here teach I feel like I m not merely memorizing my way through college but getting the chance to thoroughly understand and analyze what I m learning In addition to expanding my knowledge in my

  • New Science Center — Classroom Innovation — New Science Center — Features — Carthage College
    Kevin Crosby chair of the Division of Natural Sciences This new building provides us with a way to re envision our curriculum around these societal challenges Our integrated sciences initiative focuses in part on resource studies including freshwater and its ecosystems Prof Crosby continued What better place to study these than on the shores of the second largest body of freshwater in the world Focus Students Architects met extensively with natural sciences faculty to determine the facility s goals and priorities Faculty emphasized the importance of a student focused building said Prof Deanna Byrnes assistant professor of biology Faculty wanted to have more interactive space in which to work with students on research projects and homework assignments and spaces where students could work together outside of class The new center features 12 laboratories for research in such leading areas as material science cellular and molecular biology biochemistry and space and atmospheric sciences There will be collaborative learning areas on every floor complete with frosted glass surfaces for sketching out ideas as inspiration strikes A glass walled learning commons will serve as a tutoring center and student gathering spot Open social spaces are surrounded by faculty offices We re creating an environment that encourages and enhances faculty student interaction Provost Rivera said It s going to be a second home for science students said Associate Vice President for Business Bill Hoare who oversees all campus construction Here students develop a relationship with the academic department that really exceeds the traditional four walls of teaching mentality That s why we re paying very close attention to this building s interactive zones to where teaching continues outside the classroom and where students will be at all hours of the day and night Focus Innovative Instruction Classroom and laboratory space increases by 40 percent in the new science center and the lines between classroom and lab are blurred Prof Crosby said In the new building we re broadly adopting studio style integrated laboratory classroom spaces that allow us to switch smoothly from hands on investigation to discussion and lecture That s exciting Mr Hoare said I m very interested in the instructional technology that s going to go into this building Our faculty are breaking away from the Sage on a Stage type of classroom presentation and moving toward a teacher as facilitator teaching style which causes all kinds of changes to how these classrooms are designed I can see myself teaching in new ways in the new science center and that s an amazing opportunity said Prof Kristopher Koudelka assistant professor of chemistry and biology Focus Science on Display In addition to giving faculty new ways to educate the new science center will provide both faculty and students with new opportunities to share the results of their work The center s two story glass Integrated Sciences Pavilion will provide a striking new area for poster sessions exhibits and other presentations Glass walled classrooms and laboratories will allow students and visitors to see science
