College Sophomore

Nightlife: you have to fend for yourself if you actually want to have a good time

you're good to go if you have a group of friends with access to alcohol and a suite or off campus housing

the frat parties are either uneventful and boring or very grimy

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: a lot of students end up here just because of how much merit scholarship they've received

2 College Sophomore

Weather: it's rarely not grey outside

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: same as every other topic of rating - it' just okay

it's relatively pricey, especially if you get easily tired of Bon Appetit

almost nothing is open past 10pm (including weekends) except for Denny's and a bar or two

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: campus tries to make things safer and more comfortable but is kind of failing

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: whoever is interested in participating is welcome to

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: very cramped

feels more like a hostel than a college dorm or suite

no air conditioning makes the beginning and end of the school year very uncomfortable

but could be worse I guess

3 College Sophomore

Academics: mostly hit or miss

a lot depends on if you're lucky enough to get a good professor, whether or not you do well in large lecture settings, and your particular major

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received wonderful scholarship and grant offers, but the tuition is also more than when I started, so I have to keep working towards paying off what I can.

4 College Freshman

Weather: I love the variety. It gets very cold, sometimes unexpectedly, but there are places in the north that are always that bad. I like getting to experience all the seasons, sometimes in the matter of a few days. We get cold storms and blazing sun, and everything in between. Doesn't feel like we miss out on anything. When a nice day comes, everywhere, especially the Metroparks, are just gorgeous. I love living here.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The shuttles and buses in the city aren't perfect, but people learn how to manage them. The shuttle helps when I have to go far from where I park my car to get to class.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live at home, and I have only been a part time guest in the campus residence halls.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I just know there are a lot of nice Greek folk that are very open toward the community, but I can't personally rate Greek life myself.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The wifi is spotty, and the printer cloud has some issues, but availability is usually not an issue. There are several lab programs that you can get for your computer, so that helps. Overall, we have some smart cookies that can help you out. The aging equipment in some rooms needs to be replaced, of course, but there are some fancy new rooms worked into education

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: The most important thing is the community. I'm about spending time with people you know and establishing relationships with new people. Who cares about going out when you have something to be a part of? There are multiple events for students to connect.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The Disability Center helped me when I broke my arm to be able to get through the semester. So thankful.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I love Cleveland. This is my hometown, and it just gets better when I share it with newcomers. It is such a diverse environment, full of new things to experience and new people to meet.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not had a chance to do an internship yet. There are many professors connected with local business, though, so I know I have many resources on hand.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am excited for my program. There are great resources and wonderful people to be connected with. I am learning things I can apply to projects, Like working with Engineers Without Borders internationally. A lot of what my major requires is on-hands learning, so this is a good pairing.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I spend most of my time eating off campus. As a commuter, I have the experience of the flavors of Cleveland, and I love exploring new places. There are so many I still don't know. But it's harder if you don't have a car, but on campus students should make friends with local-based students.

4 College Freshman

Academics: CWRU is considered to be on the entry level of ivy league for a reason. It is distinguished for academics, especially in connection to research positions.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The school has some policies on who can visit dorms, which I understand. But I sometimes can't get into a school building when I have to, so this is confusing. They are very good at fighting against abuses, like sexual misconduct, related to alcohol and drug use.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: We are not very well known for our team sports, but it's nice to know we have a presence. It's good to see that our research and academic levels overshadow the sports.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live with my family, so I don't think this really counts towards the questions, since the situation is different for every commuter, but I absolutely love living at home. It is easy to get to school, and I have saved so much money.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I have spent so much in time dialogue with friends and teachers from different backgrounds and different perspectives on faith, life, and the world, but we have grown in community through it.

Case is best-suited for self-motivated, goal-oriented students with a firm grasp on reality. Most students have professional aspirations and a solid idea where they want to be in 10 years. Students tend to be very content with the level of academics and research and learning opportunity. The largest amount of concern from students comes from issues such as social atmosphere and male-female ratio. Students are mostly very happy with their professors and the facilities and resources available for students.

People are wired and "connected," but often very out-of-touch at the same time. It is often interesting to speculate about what cultural analysts from the future would say about the culture on the Case campus. Few students questioned expressed a concern for the amount of student involvement in University or students development or described any need for change in the relationship between departments or between students of different schools within Case. The Case campus offers freedom, and the city of Cleveland affords opportunities; students have the option to carve out their own niche. Case can be a school to fit the plans and aspirations of any ambitious and intelligent student in virtually any field. Its reputation as a place of endless research and learning opportunity is duly owned.
