About Carthage College

Carthage College became the lead institution for the Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium in August 2014.

Founded in 1847, Carthage College combines an environment of reflection and self-discovery with a culture of high expectation, so that our students uncover and ignite their true potential. As a four-year private liberal arts college with roots in the Lutheran tradition, we place a strong emphasis on both moral and intellectual values. Our prime location in Kenosha, Wisconsin, midway between Chicago and Milwaukee, allows students the opportunity to learn in a professional context. Our beautiful campus, an 80-acre arboretum on the shore of Lake Michigan, is home to 150 scholars, 2,600 full-time students, and 200 part-time students. Our rich academic experience equips students with foundational knowledge and skill, preparing graduates to be lifelong learners and lead meaningful, productive lives.
