The Collegiate Association for the Research of Principles (CARP) is about building authentic relationships with a community that will support your personal growth. CARP strives to help its members solidify their beliefs and broaden their perspectives. Through sincere dialogue and community impact events, your local CARP chapter can help you develop real relationships with your peers.
Irina Miller (Chabot Community College, CA)

“Hi! My name is Irina Miller. I am from Sheboygan, WI but now live in San Leandro, CA and am a freshman at Chabot Community College. I’m very grateful for the renewed vision of CARP and what it has to offer! I think it’s important to remember that our value IS something that we inherit, not something we are made to work for. It takes time and healing to let go of all our other value systems, but when we do we can live and act from a deeper place- one of love.”

Eamon Pickard (Hunter College, NY)

“My name’s Eamon. I’m 22 years old and a super senior at Hunter College in Manhattan, finishing a B.A./M.A. in physics, a B.A. in Music, and a minor in math with an education track. I’m the type of person who does it all at once- mostly because that’s how I work best. I love people so I try to help out in any way I can in my spare time. I also want to have an impact in my campus so I got involved with CARP and am also the College Senate Vice-Chair to help make great new policies.”

Rachel “Boz” Boothby (West Virginia University, WV)

“Hi! My name is Boz Boothby and I am from Annapolis Maryland. I am working towards a dual degree in Civil Engineering and Mining Engineering at West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV. Starting and leading CARP on campus at WVU is important to me because I want to create a club on campus where students can learn about key life principles, listen to one another, and eventually change the culture of WVU. Fun fact: I smile frequently and shamelessly.”

David Young (Ohio State University, OH)

“Hi, my name is David Young. A few months ago I attended the National CARP Training and got involved because I believe in the vision of CARP and I’m an advocate for breaking out of the stereotypical college student mold. Living authentically and powerfully is something you don’t have to wait for. CARP proves that college students can be awesome, authentic, and skilled leaders.”
