3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are many options around campus. The hot spots are Little Italy, Hessler, South Overlook, and E 115th.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: With Little Italy, Uptown, and all the newer options located on Euclid, there is a lot of variety and most places are low cost. There are no student discounts I am aware of, however most places accept student payment cards (Case Cash) as payment.

3 College Junior

Administration: It's usually bearable. Most of the administrators and RAs are nice and reasonable as long as you aren't obnoxious and rude.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: There might be something going on about every other weekend. And because parties are so hard to come by, they usually are busted pretty quickly.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Certain majors get certain scholarships which is helpful. There is also a work study option, if you qualify, which allows you to earn money towards financial aid while doing a relatively easier job.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Overall it's alright. The quality can be okay but it definitely is not worth the price or the fact that it is mandatory for the first 2 years of school.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The overall atmosphere of the college is very sheltered and secluded. However, the dorms and professors are generally rather nice and appealing.

College Student

Campus Food: I have not visited yet

College Student

Campus Housing: I have not visited the campus yet.However,from what I have seen the buildings look well structured.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Completely depends on where you live. Uptown is fancy but expensive. There are tons of small but cute and cheap places in Little Italy if you can find them.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Cleveland has a REALLY GREAT dining scene! Many students here fail to check out all that the city has to offer.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I have not directly had a negative interaction with the administration so far

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Personally, I don't really enjoy the whole "frat party" thing. If it is your thing, they're easy enough to find and get into. If not, there are plenty of fun free events and concerts on the weekend evenings. You just have to look for them.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Case gave me a really great merit-based scholarship. If it wasn't for this, I definitely wouldn't be going here.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Dining hall food gets really old after awhile. Its nice to be able to use meal swipes at places like Denny's and Melt, but that's how you gain the dreaded freshman 15 I guess. Some of my favorite places are technically off-campus, although they're still within walking distance. For some you can use case cash (Mitchell's, Chipotle, Subway, Constantino's, etc.) but others don't take it, especially some of the great stuff in Little Italy (Mama Santa's, Presti's, Algebra.. BUT Murray Hill Market and La Pizzeria do take CaseCash. Few people realize this.). I encourage freshman to venture out of NRV and explore the area, or even try the food on South Side if you get sick of the stuff near your dorm.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is generally pretty good. For freshmen, some of the newer dorms like Taft and Tyler are significantly better than the older ones. For sophomores, they're nicer- especially in the buildings with suite style rooms and full kitchens.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't go to parties.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: No one tries, its too cold. Danger of rape theme is pushed way too hard. Girls probably think 12/10 guys are rapists.

Greek Life: Case's Greek community is extremely accepting, and mellow compared to other schools, however this is definitely a positive thing, yet Greek life (supervising body) is relentless in trying to crush any fun Greeks may attempt to have.

Athletics: I'd say less than five percent of students attend athletic events, and IM's have relatively low participation as well. The Hackathon probably draws more people than all athletic events combined.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: You can find very expensive housing, but then also very affordable housing, and some is very close to campus, while other locations are over a mile away. Therefore I'd consider it your average college off housing scenario.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
