The writing of JCU alumnus Tim Russert ’72 in his book, “Big Russ and Me,” was the most defining piece of influence in my college decision. There are sections of the book in which he discusses his experience as a student at John Carroll. Being from Massachusetts, I was not at all familiar with Cleveland, but the way in which Mr. Russert had written about JCU is what led me to check it out. I finally came to visit JCU in April of my senior year during the Accepted Student Celebration, and the way in which I was received here, on the John Carroll campus, was wonderful. I had never felt so welcomed in a place so far from home. I knew that day that John Carroll was the place for me. And it is my hope to bring that feeling to more students and families visiting John Carroll.
