My name is Dr. Kyle O’Dell, and I am the Senior Director of Student Engagement at John Carroll University. One of my responsibilities is to coordinate Streak Week, a busy schedule of educational programs and social events designed to introduce you to the University and to life as a college student.

You may be wondering why you need to attend Streak Week in addition to the New Student Orientation that you participated in over the summer. There are several reasons for this. Streak Week picks up where summer orientation ended and is designed to provide a more in-depth introduction to the University. Throughout the week, you will attend various educational sessions focused on issues you may encounter during your first year. Some of the sessions focus on the JCU mission, creating a welcoming community, and responsible relationships. During the week, you will also have a chance to meet your SWAT Leader, who will serve as your small group leader for the weekend. In addition, there are several awesome evening activities planned for you. These events are a great opportunity for you to meet your classmates and see what John Carroll has to offer!

Streak Week 2020 officially begins on Wednesday, August 26, at check-in and runs until Sunday, August 30. Classes will begin on Monday, August 31. You can look for more specific details about Streak Week 2020 as it draws closer, but in the meantime please browse the links on this site to find out more!

Please contact the Office of Student Engagement if you have questions about Streak Week. You can call our office at 216.397.4288 or contact the office by email at Streak Week is one of John Carroll’s many traditions and we look forward to you sharing in it! Go Blue Streaks!
