Student Organizations are a great way to get involved on campus within your particular area of interest. At John Carroll University we have student organizations representing a variety of interests and categories such as : service, social, fraternities/sororities, cultural, academic and more! If you do not see an organization you are interested in, then start your own. It is quick and easy! Also make plans to attend the Student Involvement Fair in the fall each year to meet student organization leaders in person!




There are four fraternities and five sororities at JCU. Throughout the college experience at John Carroll University, the friendships that our members make within their chapters lasts a lifetime. Whether you come to college not knowing a single person or you come with friends, the opportunity to be a part of a national fraternity or sorority can transcend your JCU college experience.
