The tradition of Tower Time began in the Fall of 2021 out of a desire to strengthen one of the most treasured aspects of the John Carroll experience – a deep sense of community and belonging. Each Wednesday during the academic year, our faculty, staff, and students take a break from their daily routines at 1:50 p.m. to enjoy Connection, Conversation, and Community in a relaxed atmosphere.
