4 College Freshman

Athletics: Being a varsity athlete myself I think the athletics as well as the facilities are great on our campus. Many students whether varsity athletes or not are involved in athletics. Whether playing or just cheering our student involvement and the universities involvement as a whole is big!

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Student opinions vary on the importance and participation in club and varsity sports. Some say that varsity sports are a big part of campus life, even if everything doesn't revolve around them. While sporting events are attended, they aren't a huge aspect of the University. The same can be said for popular club and intramural sports on campus. While club and intramural sports may not be incredibly popular, there are many options available, and they are a great way to meet people, get involved, and stay fit. Additionally, John Carroll's recreation facilities are decent and meet students' needs, but they could use a little more. There is talk of future plans to remodel the student center and the athletic facilities.

The athletic program at John Carroll is well respected, whether the University has good teams or teams in which most students have lost faith. Men's basketball is an example of one of the University's best teams. School spirit is good at times, but never excellent. Most students attend basketball games, volleyball games, swim meets, and football games.

School Spirit
John Carroll's school spirit can be high, but it really depends on the sport. Recently, a new organization on campus called "The Carroll Crazies" has been recruiting students to dress up with school spirit attire and attend athletic events. This organization has great advertising. Plus, they give out T-shirts and water bottles! Who doesn't love free stuff?
Getting Tickets
For most sports events, if not all, John Carroll students get in for free with their Carroll Card (student ID), and this includes the football games. This means that you never have to worry about getting tickets for these events, and if you bring a friend along, tickets are inexpensive and easy to get.
Best Place to Take a Walk
The neighborhood around John Carroll in University Heights is a beautiful, quiet neighborhood where students can take a walk or run. There is a beautiful park called Horseshoe Lake Park that is about 10 to 15 minutes from John Carroll; this park has a pond and areas to sit or explore. Also, Legacy Village, which is a slightly upscale outdoor shopping plaza, is a great place to walk around; they often have events at night, such as bands playing or ice sculptures in the winter.
