Alumni immersion trip postponed
Since the printing of the winter edition of John Carroll magazine, we’ve learned our partner organization in Haiti is unable to host us this spring because of the health and political concerns in the country. We’re exploring other sites for an alumni immersion trip this fall. If you’re interested in participating in an alumni immersion experience, contact Theresa Spada ’04 at or 216-397-3014.

The Office of Alumni Relations, along with JCU’s president, Robert L. Niehoff, S.J., hosted several receptions the past few months in Cleveland, Atlanta, Los Angeles, and Miami. Here’s a look.
