John Carroll University Reviews
During my first year at John Carroll, I struggled a little bit adjusting. However, I quickly fell in love after I started getting involved on campus. I became a part of service programs, immersion trips, and retreats. I made friends through both students and faculty that will last a lifetime. John Carroll is a close-knit community that cares for each other; everyone is family. The campus is beautiful, the academics are top-notch, and the athletics teams are always exciting to watch!
John Carroll University is a small scale Jesuit school with beautiful old style buildings. Definitely could use updates on interior. Can be a rewarding experience if you get involved. There's plenty of opportunity to do mission and volunteer work. JCU sports are very successful and sporting events are fun to attend. The party scene is decent because house parties are broken up by cops constantly because students live in family neighborhoods. Great location to get to downtown Cleveland with a short Uber or Lyft ride!
JCU is a highly esteemed university with a huge alumni network all throughout the world. The fact that it is a jesuit institution draws many in. Unfortunately, the university itself is just not that diverse. I know it is a small school, and the hands on / small classroom learning experience has been great. Aside from this, I feel like a larger school would be better for someone looking to really branch out, meet people from around the world, and join active organizations. I have found the communication at JCU to be fairly poor - many departments do not seem to have an understanding of the others. I feel like I am always searching for information that I wish would be more clearly communicated.
