3 College Freshman

Athletics: I play football which is fun and intramural basketball.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Through my first semester of John Carroll I feel like I have experienced all it has to offer. The reason my rating is so high is that through football I've met a lot of friends that I think that will last a lifetime. However, there are many aspects of this school that I do not like. The first is the caf is terrible. I like the buffet style, but the lack of variety means I eat the same thing almost every day. Next is that there is nothing in the area. There is no food places besides the Pizzaz strip that no one goes to. Off campus housing is too far away and the parties are cramped. Other than that playing football and pickup basketball keeps me busy.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus but I never let my guard down- you can never be to careful.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Just for the same reason a house is a home only because of the family that lives there, the same goes for JCU- the professors that teach here have become my extended family.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I feel that my time here so far and years to come at JCU is and will definitely be worthwhile. JCU has a great reputation and I am very blessed to be part of a great school for the professors who are preparing me for future, looking forward to the networking of the alumni and gaining so much knowledge during my time here.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I've been very happy with the dorm options, and have just made do with the community bathrooms. I love living on campus and plan to do so my junior hear in the Spring since I am planning on studying abroad in the Fall as well as living on campus my senior year.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I myself am not part of a sorority. I had planned to join one before attending College but after choosing a smaller school I decided against it. Greek Life do a lot of charitable work within the community.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We are a small school D3 but our facilities are very nice considering that the school does not revolve around the sports. I attend some of the games. I do participate in club sports.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like the small classes and the opportunities that are avIable to me. I would definitely pick my school again.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There are a few places to go to and there are alot of Carroll kids that go to them. Tuesdays and Thursdays are big nights to go off campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never felt unsafe at any point. Being aware of your surroundings is important anywhere but I have never felt uncomfortable or scared.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses are great. The Professors are all accomodating and helpful. There are a wide vairety and there is something for every one.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Career service center is very helpful. The Business school specifically has alot of oppertunities for internships and career postings. They are also actively involved in making sure each student is professional. There is a great alumni network as well.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Campion so there is a lot of space in the rooms. They remain fairly clean. The heat is broken alot. Paccelli and Dolan are not as nice as Campion.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: They can be fairly cliquey. I don't know anything about the fraternities. More of the social life in this campus revolves around the sports teams.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I do not think that the facilities are that great. My public high school had nicer weight rooms. I do not play any sports so it does not matter to me that much.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far, I have enjoyed all of my professors as well as the classes. I have grown as a writer and a student in general in this first semester. The advisers are very knowledgeable and are easy to talk to.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is aged but it adds character to the campus. All furniture and appliances are brand spankin' new and in good condition!

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is fair and helpful. Definitely each is suitable to the personality of each individual who wishes to do so.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: In need of more availability for first aid to the general public

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: John Carroll University is a wonderful school when proper planning has taken place.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: No one pays attention to varsity athletics other than basketball.

1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: John Carroll was not a good experience for me. The scheduling process was super difficult, food is awful, housing needs to be updated, technology needs to be updated, kids were very cliquey, and there wasn't much to do on weekends. Freshman orientation and scheduling needs to be changed, lot's of facilities and on-campus technology need to be updated, sports have absolutely no following, and there needs to be more for students to do on the weekends. Overall, I would not recommend John Carroll University and that's why I am transferring for the spring 2016 semester to a different institution.

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.
