College Student

Off-Campus Housing: i dont live off campus but i know a lot of people that do and the food is cheaper and its a lot more convienent

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: there are a lot of options but if you dont have a car you have to walk which sucks

4 College Student

Administration: honestly only idiots get caught drinking in the dorm i know kids who play beer pong in the dorms and dont get caught or they drink with ras its not that bad just make sure a good ra is on duty

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Being a freshman, I am not sure what the off-campus housing is like. There are a few houses that are owned by the school that the house owns that students can live in, but other than that, I am not sure the cost, quality, etc. of off-campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I don't go off campus to eat often, but the experience is good. A lot of the options are well known places and chain organizations, but the cost is reasonable and it is still nice to eat food different than the campus has to offer.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I think the policies and the level of strictness here are good. If you follow them and do what you are supposed to do, there are no problems. If you want to have fun and do things that go against the university's rules, going off campus is the best option because the policies here are strict and enforced.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The process of financial aid was very easy to go through and you get a good amount of money, if you need it or deserve it. Having good academics, a history of volunteer and community service, and a financial need help you to receive more aid. Even though you can receive a lot of aid, the cost is still very high and will lead you to graduate with a large amount of debt.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I do not partake in parties and have never gone out, so I would not know where they are at, the impact they have on students, the quality of them, and so on. I have heard stories from friends who go out, but they have been all across the board, from fun and exciting to bad experiences.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Overall, the food here is alright. The Caf always has a good variety, but sometimes the way it is prepared is not the best. Once you get to the spring semester, the food gets old and starts to make you miss home-cooked meals a lot. The InnBetween is always a good option, the food there is different and they have quick and easy options. Einstein's is a good place to go for a good breakfast. The price for food here, no matter where you go, is too high and not worth it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really enjoy living on campus! The rooms are big and spacious, the people here are great, and the overall feel of campus is good. The rooms are all very close to the buildings where classes are, the activities held by the Residence Hall Association are fun, and the process of housing is easy. The only problem would be that it gets a little bit expensive.

1 College Junior

Diversity: Its like someone dumped a bottle of bleach on the school. Its like 98 percent white here. Its awful. Racist undertones are everywhere

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: Zero diversity. Majority of people are racist. Especially when drunk you'll hear lots of crap about the local synagogues and Jewish community as well as the black communities downtown in cleveland

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: Class sizes are small and teachers treat students like high schoolers. Mandatory attendance in every class. You are forced to take some weird waste of time classes often

Scholarships: They give tons of scholarships to get people to go but they are overpriced as it is. They gave me a projected cost but it ended up being way higher when the bill came

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.
