4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Diversity is very great at John Carroll. Lots of religious and ethnic groups. Most people are wealthy republicans when it comes to socioeconomic status.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Campus police is decent. They usually don't interfere with anything unless needed, except parking tickets are absurd.

3 Recent Alumnus

Computers: There weren't many problems with computers besides the poor printing quality.. a lot of the printers were broken often.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Improvements are being made so it will be great in the future.

2 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Cleveland weather sucks and the university never closes.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Good variety of classes and small class sizes.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Wealth of topics to explore and very friendly and helpful faculty.

1 Recent Alumnus

Parking: Never any free parking that's less than a mile away from where you're going, especially when you pay for a parking pass ($350/year).

5 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greek life is very open to outside activities and outside members. They are very involved on campus and there is no hazing. Lots of fun activities planned.

5 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: There is a great variety of things to do for anyone, no matter what their enjoyments/hobbies.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: UH is such a homey city with lots of friendly families and babysitting opportunities.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Dining: It was decent. I wished there was more variety of places to use our meal plan because the cafeteria got old and Einsteins/Inn-between were expensive.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: The FAFSA was a long process each year but it ended up helping. I expected to receive more so I was a bit disappointed but it was still helpful.

Recent Alumnus

Majors: I never had an internship because my major did not require one, but all of my friends did and said they were wonderful. Most ended up receiving full time jobs at their internship site and are very happy.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I enjoyed my program a lot personally. Career-wise, I was forced to go to graduate school to pursue the career I wanted but my undergrad was a definite stepping stone in helping gain experience and knowledge.

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

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school allows you to build some great relationships and join multiple organizations to prepare you for the real world.

Scholarships: One of the big reasons I went to JCU was its financial aid.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: They are strict where they need to be and lenient in the same respect.

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.

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.
