4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Much better than eating in the dining halls, quality wise. Chipotle is probably the closest and most popular option, so it gets very crowded and slow.

Administration: The only experience I have had with administration was about a cat that someone was hiding on my floor. The owner didn't get punished, except that he had to get rid of the cat.

Campus Housing: If your dorm is on northside, which is where all freshmen, some upperclassmen, and some greek houses are, its is a 15 minute walk to the main quad where most classes are. It is about a 5 minute walk to the quad from southside. The rooms are small in freshman dorms and even smaller on southside. The Village (upperclassmen housing) is actually pretty nice, but has occasional water issues. Overall, the dorms aren't great and are a little expensive, but it's somewhere to live and keep your stuff.

Scholarships: Case is an expensive school, but most people decent scholarship. There seem to be plenty of work-study jobs, so that helps. Most people I know have university scholarships, except for international students.

Campus Food: You won't starve if you're not picky. The main entrees at the dining halls are pretty good sometimes, but when they try to get complicated it gets ugly. My favorite dish they've served was barbeque chicken with mashed potatoes. When they try doing more cultural things, it's usually pretty bad.

Campus Food: Leutner is food, and become tiring after awhile because of the lack of spices and flavor.

Off-Campus Dining: It's awesome food, just a bit too far away for me to get to very often.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: In the end the Campus food areas know their jobs. Bag it is quick baggy snacks. Dining Halls serve staples. More specialized restaurants focus on their specialties and tastes.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: Very far away from campus and classes. Good food choices.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: not a lot of variety

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It is a city with some shady places but most people go four years without incident and if something does happen the facilities to deal with it are there and readily available

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's expensive but the dorms are pretty nice and the housing setup is optimized so that you meet tons of cool people all the time. My floor freshman year has one of the best collections of people I have ever met, and a lot of other floors have close bonds like that too.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
