Located just 10 miles from Cleveland, John Carroll University sits on 63 acres of University Heights, OH. Close to Lake Erie, students at the Jesuit Catholic 4-year private school enjoy lakefront living and all that goes with it. The school was founded in 1886 as St. Ignatius College; it was renamed in 1923 in honor of the first Archbishop of the Catholic Church in the U.S. The compact campus features traditional gothic architecture and the campus enjoys open green spaces, too. Its proximity to Cleveland offers many opportunities for leisure and ministry in one of the Midwest’s largest cities.
