    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    CARTHAGE IS PRETTY ALRIGHT

    The location is beautiful, close connection with faculty, small student base and thus small class sizes to facilitate personalized learning, a promise for large amounts of opportunities postgraduate.


    Course Curriculum - 

    There are only a few truly unnecessary classes, and those are specifics regarding the prerequisites of higher-level courses in my field particularly, mostly due to redundancy (i.e Ecology after already taking Environmental science, etc). It's otherwise very well curated.
