3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The tuition is very expensive, and it is going up even higher next year (by $2000), but the fund is very limited. My work-study has been lowered and even if I appeal, I do not get much more scholarship.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Because the Case Western Reserve University offers an excellent health care program, we do not have to worry about making appointments or going to the emergency room. However, I do feel unsafe walking around the campus alone at night. Some of my friends actually got robbed or got hit by strangers.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The school enforces very strict rules on the plagiarism. Students immediately fail the course when the school catch them plagiarizing.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The school provides many shuttles that go to different parts of the campus. Also, later in the night, we can call a "safe ride" which drops you off in front of you place. They wait until you go into your place. Everything does not cost anything for students.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The school recently replaced all the computers in the library. However, the technology lab only has old computers with Windows 7. Also, the school adopted a new printing system, which became more complicated than before. We have to go through many steps before finally getting the printed papers.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I do not think there is any peer pressure for the drugs. Because not many activities happen around the school, people tend to drink more. Alcohol and drugs are prohibited at the dorm because the first and second year students are under age.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Since my school is a music conservatory, everyone is very liberal and unique. Even the way that people dress differs greatly from one individual to the other. Some people likes exposing their skin a lot, while other do not care about their look at all.

Because my school is such a small school compare to the regular universities, the kind of relationships that people can have is very limited. There is not much of a privacy for anyone.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I am leaving off-campus, so I cannot say much about on-campus housing. However, my friends have told me that the cost is extremely high for its worth. However, it is literally right beside the school, so it must be very convenient for them to go back and forth.

2 College Sophomore

Weather: Cleveland has very extreme weather. It is very cold and snows a lot during the winter, and it is very hot and humid during the summer.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: My school has students from all over the world, from Asia to Europe, America, and Africa. Because we have a large variety of ethnic groups, everyone is friendly toward each other and I do not sense much of any discrimination.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of local restaurants with diverse ethnic food. The price is not too bad, except for a few high end restaurants. However, most of these restaurants are not within the walking distance.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The newly built Mixon Concert Hall looks beautiful from the outside and has amazing acoustics. The University Circle - combined with Case Western Reserve University campus- offers awesome experiences for the students, such as free admission to the Cleveland Museum of Art (has amazing collections) and Botanical Garden. However, there are not that many places to eat around school and it is a bit dangerous to walk around the school during the night.

3 College Junior

Parking: It's expenisve and no more convenient than parking off campus in neighborhoods and walking.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: House parties are the main event, though grad students tend to go to nearby bars more often than not.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The process was easy, but the amount was not. It is a very expensive school to attend, and the scholarships/avaiable work study amounts aren't great.

2 College Junior

Computers: There is one computer lab. But, as we are a music school, it isn't used often. Which is good, because it is very small. IT is non-existant, though that is a personell issue at the moment. We get a lot of tech support from CWRU, including our wireless, which is spotty in the music school.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Plenty to choose from, low prices, but you get what you pay for. Nothing terribly nice, but it's all livable. Some areas are not great if you're living alone, and too close to CWRU feels like a frat house with noise and drunk students on weekends.

College Junior

Athletics: I go to a conservatory, which does not have athletic teams

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Cleveland is a decent city, there just isn't a ton right around campu. Tuition includes bus passes, which helps to get to other parts of the city. You just don't want to be on it too late at night. Having a car is better than not, though not having one doesn't make things impossible. Home to miltiple professional sports teams and a nice restaurant scene, it is easy to find things to do here.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus and am unable to comment on housing

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There is constant security in the building as well as Cleveland police around frequently. It is, however, a city. Walking in certain areas alone and/or at not is ill-advised, but in the building there are rarely problems.

College Junior

Campus Dining: I don't eat on campus, I am a graduate student attending a conservatory

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Cleveland is a city and the campus is near a major medical center. There are many different kinds of resaurants, including Little Italy, all within walking distance. If they give discounts or have specials for students, it is for Case Western Reserve University undergrads, who are also in the imediate area.

College Junior

Campus Strictness: My undergraduate school was a wet campus with a wonderful honor code. They treated us like adults but in return expected us to rise to the standards. Alcohol was always around, but you were expected to obey the law and not drink if you were underage and not to serve to underage students. Tests were administered without the professors in the room or as take homes, under the honor code. When the honor code was broken, however, punishments could be severe.

I know very little about my current school, as I am a graduate student living off campus. I know that deadlines are taken seriously, and failure to meet them may result in fines.

2 College Freshman

Weather: Cloudy most of the time. Very cold and lots of snow.
