Overall Experience: Neither a bad experience nor a good experience quite equal.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I have nothing to say about the sporting events held here at John Carroll.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: 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.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have heard from both faculty and external sources that JCU grads are highly valued and actively sought out by employers. The level of performance demanded from us is quite high and thus fosters academic excellence across the board. I absolutely have no worries securing a job after graduation. Internships are mandatory at John Carroll and students are often offered full time positions straight after graduation.

Greek Life: To be completely honest, I don't know much about Greek life because I am a commuter, however I haven't heard any complaints regarding them.

3 College Junior

Athletics: John Carroll is a division 3 school so athletics aren't really stressed as much as academics. That being said, athletics are still supported and recognized.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel very prepared to enter the work force upon graduation. Internships are both encouraged and mandatory, forcing us to gain real life experience within our field. Diversity is few and far in between but organizations exist to foster growth in this arena.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics are fun, we could use more fan support

Overall Experience: Staff to student ratio is almost 1:1, which is amazing because each student has a mentor, or someone out there who vouches for them or guides them into a supportive environment and will not give up one the students.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
