“Every college will promise to prepare you for a career, and John Carroll definitely will too. But that’s where most of them stop. JCU, on the other hand, won’t just make you more employable; it will help you become a better person."

“I reached out to a John Carroll alum at my first choice for graduate school. He gave me some pointers before my interview, and then advice on how to succeed once I was accepted! I hope I can return the favor to a future Blue Streak one day when I am out in the field.”

Mara Esber '16, Doctoral candidate in Clinical Psychology, Roosevelt University, Chicago
