Awards and Events

Whether you’re the graduating student or a parent of a graduate, these pages give you all the latest information on Commencement events and traditions.  As part of the John Carroll tradition, we offer many unique events and opportunities to our graduating seniors.

We celebrate the Class of 2018, as well as their family and friends, at the Baccalaureate Mass.

Two unique honors for two graduating seniors are the Beaudry Award and the Millor Orator.

Every graduate will need to pick up their Cap and Gown prior to the ceremony.

Our ROTC cadets finish their time as cadets at JCU with a Commissioning ceremony, which serves as their transition to a military career.

Achievement award recipients in both the College of Arts and Sciences and the Boler School of Business are honored at a Senior Awards Ceremony during Commencement Weekend.

Graduating seniors should be particularly interested in the Senior Checklist and Senior Week pages. The checklist will help the student to ensure his or her place in the Class of 2018, while the Senior Week schedule outlines the celebrations for our newest alumni.
