What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior there are so many things I would tell myself. The first thing I would tell myself is to worry about me first, not anybody else. I would tell myself to relax more and just have fun and take it one day at a time. Worrying too much about the future will cause me to miss things in the present, that I should savor everything I have when I have it because nothing lasts forever. I would tell myself not to get to down when things don't go as planned because still nothing lasts forever, and things will get better eventually.

What's unique about your campus?

I really like the location. It's in a safe and beautiful area, it's not in the city but Cleveland is close enough that it's an easy drive if you wanna get off campus and find something to do. There are also a lot of activities sponsored by the school so you never have to be bored. There are a lot of clubs and activities for those who want to get involved, and there are also intramural, varsity and club sports.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

There are a lot of great aspects of John Carroll. The camous is beautiful and it's in a great area. The school has a good reputation and the classes are challenging. I love the people here, they are all very friendly and the school is a good size, none of the classes are too big, you don't have to worry about getting lost in the crowd. If you are ever struggling the professors are more than willing to help you succeed.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Be sure to take your student to as many colleges as you can, but be sure that you only guide their choice, rather than force a school. They need to enjoy the enviornment and have the opportunity for great academics. Be open with the your student and let THEM talk, find out what they want most out of life and what type of enviornment they see themselves in (ie. big greek life, city atmosphere, big/small, etc). Allow your child to experience college while they can, but be sure they don't ruin their grades. Emphasize the importance of traveling abroad and potentially studying abroad. The influence we as Americans have on the world is important, but we need to let the world show our youth who they are, and let them appreciate what the history of the world east of us has to offer.

What's unique about your campus?

You learn a lot in the small classes, and although you have to go to class and work pretty hard, it's worthwhile. Meeting people at the beginning of freshman year is very easy, so take advantage and be sure to stay in contact with those you have a connection with.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Attempting to find a job with the career center and the administration and the way they handle the student body.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't worry about reputation or the prestige of the school. CAREFULLY choose what fits students/parents best according student's interests and where they can succeed best academically, but who can offer them the best well-rounded college experience - one where they leave with confidence in themselves academically, but have great memories to cheris - but most importantly- have matured into a more - well rounded young adult and have been given the tools to succeed in the workplace, in graduate school, and beyond - without breaking the bank!

What's unique about your campus?

Job placement, reputation, easy access to professors (most but DEFINITELY not all).

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you visit the campus numerous times and meet with students who are not paid to be hosts and guests. They will only tell you what they want you to hear and not what you need to. Get to know other students and professors before making any decissions. Also ask what plans the school is planning in the near future that may change the cost of tuition in the near future or during the time you would be attending.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Those who are struggling econoically or want to do anything in regards to multimedia, film, or animataion.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

Costs too much and was not overly friendly. The professors knew nothign of my desired subjects and topics and I was forced to teach myself and them since they have no experience in the field, mainly animation.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

This school has a great brick campus with a lot of tradition. Its big for a "small school" and has a great reputation. If you want a good school academically with a good reputation, but still want to have a social life and have fun, this is a great choice. It also offers a good religious environment thats not overwhelming. Cleveland is close by and theres plenty to do in the surrounding area.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't just look at the credentials of the school but also take a look at the type of students on campus and type of students it attracts. If your looking at playing a sport in college, make sure you like the school first as a lot of students at small schools stop playing after a year or two of sports.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To parents, as a current college senior who has been through many ups and downs in my college career, I offer you the following advice. When helping your child decide, encourage him or her to choose the school where they know they will be motivated to take all the necessary steps to succeed like, showing up every morning, homework every night, and handing work in on-time. Choosing a school is difficult, but finding a school that meets the needs of a student is relatively easy as long as positive motivation is attached.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have known the importance of showing up every day for class; not just physically being there, but mentally as well. It is very important to go into each day knowing that it is important and that each day impacts the final result.

What kind of person should attend this school?

If you want to attend this school, you must be a person who is open to new ideas and ways of learning. You have to be willing to work hard every night to ensure your success at the end of each semester.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would say to make sure you really research the schools you are looking at. Be sure to see if it matches your ideas about the types of people you want to go to school with, the overall mission of the school, and academic focus.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wants a variety of experiences and people

John Carroll has a great Business program. It also has great programs for Science majors.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you visit the campus and make sure you feel really comfortable on campus. You'll be spending a lot of time there, and college becomes your home away from home, so you really want to feel safe and accepted for the person you are.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The people are clicky and they exclude others that are different from them. The dorms are also old and not at all cozy. They (the dorms) definitely need updating and more amenities. The food service could also be improved. It's overpriced and unhealthy.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Visit as many schools as possible and try to get a feel for the area and the people that are at the schools you visit. Do not go to a school because your friends are or because you want to play a certain sport, go to a college that you like and that offers your intended major, because friends come and go and you never know what can happen to you in a sport.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Nothing. During my visits before coming to this school they were honest about everything, so there is nothing that I wish to have known before hand.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

How good of a school it is. The professors are willing to work with everyone and are friendly, the student body is friendly, just an overall great place to be.
