The class sizes is small, which is great becuase the professor gets to know the students on a personal and professional way. All of the professors care about the students development, if they're getting the work done correctly and making sure we are stretching ourselves to learn more. Each professor is different but they know how to explain the material in multiple ways so that all students will be able to follow along with them. It is all difficult work but that is expected. If extra help is needed, we have tutors in Ritter and online! Pretty much everything is flexible.

With taking the rapid downtown (5 minute drive and 20 minute ride), you can go to Playhouse Square (the biggest theatre district in the US outside of NYC), the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, and see the Cleveland Indians, the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Cleveland Browns, and the Lake Erie Monsters (hockey). The campus also has Bach Festival, which is the oldest collegiate Bach fest in the country and Beatles Fest, where students perform the works of the Beatles. The music theatre program is also one of the best in the country: with a free ticket as a student, you get to see a Broadway quality show!

The food itself is not that great, and it's unhealthy and overpriced. But, as already mentioned in the living on campus section, their payment plan is the best! I'll just repost it here.
I love their meal plan. It's a declining balance card with about 2000 dollars allotted per semester, and whatever you don't use, you get back to use on tuition, in the bookstore, or whatever. And it's all a la carte. You pay for what you buy, and that's it. It's really great. You can use that card on everything on campus- vending machines, bookstore, candy counter, you name it. And did I mention you get back what you don't use? That's so unlike most campuses. Use your money wisely and you will save A LOT of money.
