4 College Junior

Academics: The small classroom style really helps get to know professors, though some can be sub-par. The business school and communications department are well known.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Life at JCU is very level headed and not too wild.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: There are some options on and around campus at times, but once you're 21, more options open up.

3 College Junior

Computers: The wireless network crashes a lot, but most people have their own laptops

3 College Junior

Diversity: It is not a very diverse campus by any means, but is very accepting to those who are.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It's better than eating on campus, but it's easier if you have a car.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I'd say being close enough to Cleveland has its perks.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The worst residence hall has been renovated, vastly improving campus housing.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: It's pretty good, but people binge drink. Sometimes there is domestic violence.

3 College Junior

Transportation: There are always options. If you need to get to the station, just get a ride with a friend.

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drug users are documented and punished. It is not accepted here, though it still happens of course.

3 College Junior

Parking: For the limited size of campus, the lack of parking available makes sense.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The school supports the varsity athletics, but the students don't show too much interest. The intramurals are acceptable.

2 College Junior

Weather: Cleveland's weather is not something to be excited about. It is either raining or snowing. Every once in a while, you'll have a nice day, but the next day is just more of the same.

4 College Junior

Majors: It is a rigorous program and requires a high GPA.

3 College Junior

Majors: It is respected, but the new professors are poor.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: You see the same people all the time

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There's not much to do. It's such a small campus in a very small town.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Carroll crazies are trying to push school spirit again and it's good.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: There's a lot to do with friends. I usually hang out in the library but for weekends and late nights you kind of have to come up with your own plans.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: The business school is great and we have a great entrepreneurship program

College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't know anything about Greek life

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Overall, students love being students at John Carroll, but it is important to remember that there are always things that could be better—no matter the university. However, most John Carroll students said that they would pick JCU again if they had the chance to do it all over. The close community at John Carroll is really one of the University's biggest pluses. You will never love everything about the school that you choose, but it is important to pick a school based on what is important to you.  

A lot of students tell freshmen that if they don't get involved in things on campus, they will miss out on a lot of great opportunities, fun times, and wonderful people. This is true. College is mostly what you make it. It is about meeting new people, growing as a person, and taking advantage of experiences and opportunities that are readily available to you. John Carroll will become your home and your friends will become your family. It is a wonderful feeling to be at what you feel is "the right school" for you.
