John Carroll is located pretty close to Cleveland, and for that reason, there are many places to go at night. Most JCU students stick to a few places in particular, and most go out on Thursdays for "College ID Night" and on Fridays and Saturdays, as well. There is a bus driver called Cabbie D who drives students to bars and clubs for $5 each way. It's quite an adventure going on his bus, but not always the safest. Some students take cars, but most don't. Students usually go to BarRoom, City and East, Bounce, Jake's, Panini's, and McNulty's, just to name a few. There are lots of places to go, and the area called Coventry is usually a big hot spot.
Besides bars and clubs, a lot of students go to house parties. Since most people know each other on campus, it usually isn't difficult to find a house party to go to, sometimes even on a Monday or Wednesday night. Underage students can get into some clubs, including City and East and BarRoom on Thursdays, but other than that, they usually hang out in dorm rooms or go to house parties.
