John Carroll University Reviews
Review John Carroll University
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!
John Carroll is truly a home away from home. It is a small campus that allows for smaller class sizes which allows for better relationships with professors. The faculty here really care about you and your academic experience. An example of this is when I was struggling in a class, I went to my professor's office hours and she was so accommodating, even letting me do extra work to boost my grade. The students are very welcoming as well. Everyone holds the doors open for you, people will say hi even if you don't know them, and it is an overall positive community. Lastly, it's proximity to the city of Cleveland allows for a lot of school-sponsored outings to sporting events, local restaurants, and festivals. Overall, John Carroll is a place that makes me feel welcome and safe and I can't imagine attending any other school.
