Sunday, Feb. 15, and Sunday, April 19

Our Junior Open House serves as a wonderful opportunity to become familiar with John Carroll University and learn more about the college search process. We know that most families are willing to spend approximately 4 hours on campus during an open house; therefore, we have intentionally designed our schedule to fit those parameters. Come ready to discover for yourself what type of education and experience John Carroll will provide you. We look forward to your visit!

Visitors have the option to attend a 9 a.m. Catholic Mass at the Church of the Gesu, a family and community parish located across from campus. For those who wish to attend Mass, please plan on arriving to JCU between 8:30-8:45 a.m. For those who do not wish to attend Mass, please plan on arriving to JCU by 10 a.m.
