After John Carroll University

I love Carroll! I was a little hesitant to attend a Jesuit (Catholic) school at first, but the things I have learned have enlightened me so much. Everyone is nice and even though we have around 3000+ students you rarely see the same people all the time. John Carroll is accepting of everyone's rave and faith and there are few problems on campus. They tend to student suggestions and complaints and try to fix them. I wouldn't trade the John Carroll experience for any other universitiy.

As with anything, you have to take advantage of the opportunities given. There is plenty of opportunity to join clubs, get involved on campus and attend events. Students are kept informed regularly through email alerts detailing current events on campus and general need-to-know info. Professors (in my experience) are more that willing to help if reached out to. The curriculum in general is rigorous and aimed to make us as well rounded as possible. This often means that along with core classes pertaining to one's major, other humanities classes and electives are mandatory. This is sometimes annoying because some of these courses don't always feel relevant. That being said, JCU is a good school. Employers actively seek out JCU graduates, having faith in the academic excellence that JCU prides itself in. The alumni community is also very involved in the school and are willing to help students through networking in securing internships, jobs and scholarships. I have personally received a scholarship donation from an alum.

I'm not an RA and will never be but I enforce policies more than others do. As a maintenance worker on campus, I have more power than the RAs do at times, which makes me more respected as a minority. But dang these people need to learn to respect the property! We've had walls break, beer spills, burning hoverboards and more. And I'm the one supervising furniture moving this summer. And we host housing for the Republican National Convention this summer.
