John Carroll a university with a commitment to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment. Please ensure that your students show the same respect to our students, faculty, and staff.

Students and chaperones should not talk or text on their phones, listen to music, or be engaged in other activities that take their attention away from the professional enrollment staff member or student tour guide.
