Party Scene

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not really a party person.

2 College Student

Party Scene: there are literally no parties sometimes there is a good one around but it always gets busted and there are never any during sports seasons

1 College Junior

Party Scene: If getting beer poured on you by nasty white boys is your thing then go for it. Parties are small. Always busted around 12. Occasionally one good party will spring up but a majority involve sitting and standing around some guys playing pong

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Tech at JCU is getting better every year. The biggest issue I see with everything (WiFi, printers, etc.) is the reliability. WiFi can be shotty, which is a shame since it is actually excellent Internet when you are connected. I have gotten download speeds of up to 70 mbps, which is incredible for such a large network. Classrooms all have a projector or large screen TV for presenting. There is supposed to be some color printing, but they never work. Hopefully as that ages it will get better.

THE BIGGEST ISSUE is that you can't use WiFi for any game console or Smart TV. Absolutely ridiculous that we have to rely on ethernet cables in 2015. Most every school has a separate network for this type of thing, yet JCU just lags behind. Hopefully Student Union can make something happen, because I know the Administration sure won't.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't really party much.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

John Carroll is located pretty close to Cleveland, and for that reason, there are many places to go at night. Most JCU students stick to a few places in particular, and most go out on Thursdays for "College ID Night" and on Fridays and Saturdays, as well. There is a bus driver called Cabbie D who drives students to bars and clubs for $5 each way. It's quite an adventure going on his bus, but not always the safest. Some students take cars, but most don't. Students usually go to BarRoom, City and East, Bounce, Jake's, Panini's, and McNulty's, just to name a few. There are lots of places to go, and the area called Coventry is usually a big hot spot.

Besides bars and clubs, a lot of students go to house parties. Since most people know each other on campus, it usually isn't difficult to find a house party to go to, sometimes even on a Monday or Wednesday night. Underage students can get into some clubs, including City and East and BarRoom on Thursdays, but other than that, they usually hang out in dorm rooms or go to house parties.

Organization Parties
Certain clubs and sports teams have parties. Usually, they are for the people involved in those activities, but sometimes they open it up to other people. The swim team and the soccer team are known for having parties; the band and the Carroll News also have their own parties. Generally, most organizations on campus have parties every once in a while.
