Congratulations!! You did it!! Despite the uncertainty of the times we're in, there's still a lot to be grateful for- family and friends that supported (and still support ) you through these years; new friends you made along the way, a world-class education that no one, NOT even this pandemic, can take away!! and much more.

Hey 2020 Blue Streaks, congratulations!  Its sad you won't have the ceremony, but when this pandemic is over your reunion party will be epic!  Start the planning now. Keep in touch with your classmates.  Best of luck to each of you.

Congratulations Class of 2020. What we often refer to as your “real life” is now beginning. But because of the COVID 19 virus, it is beginning in totally unexpected ways, with totally new challenges.. The classes you’ve taken  at JCU have prepared you for what was expected. But it’s the underlying values  JCU  promotes that  will  prepare you for the unexpected. The ability and willingness to hear other points of  view; the ability to think critically: and the ability to live your  lives in faith, hope, and love for God, and with care for one another - these are the lessons that  will prepare you for making this strange new world a better place. Best wishes to all of you.

Congratulations to the Class of 2020!

Regretfully, Covid 19 prevents you from enjoying the tradition of walking across the stage to receive your diploma.  I extend a virtual cheer and applause in recognition of earning your degree.
I welcome you to Alumni Association and encourage your to become an active member in your local City Chapter. A special welcome to the Class of 2020 from the Detroit City Chapter.  We look forward to seeing you at one of our future Alumni events.

Dear Class of 2020, 

Your time at John Carroll was meaningful and no doubt went by to quickly. Although you won’t have a physical graduation, please make sure to take advantage of every Reunion opportunity. Your time spent together at Reunions, and they are first-rate events, will be all the more precious for your class. Stay in contact with each other over the years. You have a unique bonding experience. Make the most of your historic circumstances to come together in a special way whenever possible. I wish you all the best! 

Ann (Geiger) Healey '82

Cheers, Congratulations and Blessings to the Class of 2020!  This test of endurance, fortitude and sacrifice cannot detract from your future success and happiness.  Class of 2006 shares in your sadness (we also did not get to graduate on the Quad), but Carroll will ever be in your heart, as it is ours.  The alumni community welcomes you with open arms!

Bethany (Glassbrenner) Beal '06
