4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience has been very good. Case Western Reserve University's nursing program is the only school in the country that starts clinicals there freshman year. I have thoroughly enjoyed that. I like the urban setting the campus is in and use the RTA transportation pass quite often. I would still choose this University given another opportunity to do so.

Overall Experience: My experience at CWRU has been absolutely amazing so far. I love the student community and the resources Case provides to its students.

Overall Experience: The school is in a very nice setting right near the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Botanical Gardens, and the Cleveland Orchestra. Most instructors are available to talk and have an open door policy. Cost is very high and although some scholarship is offered, it is not enough to cover the full tuition, so a supplement is needed.

Overall Experience: I spent my freshman year at case western before transferring out the following year. While there, I enjoyed the fact that I was living on my own away from my parents. Case was unique in the fact that it was a really small private school, located in a metropolitan area, that had the resources of a larger institution. The campus was located in the University Circle, a region with several tourists attractions including museums, a botanical garden and the cleveland orchestra. The school offers pretty good financial aid to those who need it. I personally would not have gone to case if I had a chance to do things over again. The school was a little too small for my liking and there were large divides between students. The large international population usually stayed amongst themselves. Also there isn't much support for athletics which I enjoy

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have enjoyed my time at Case Western Reserve University. I have learned so much through my graduate program and the experience that I have gotten through real life applications is like none other. Although the name if the university has great pull all over the world but the price you pay is unbearable and makes it impossible to make ends meet.

Scholarships: After filling out the FAFSA forms there was a mistake and it took 4 weeks before i was notified and corrected the mistake. The mistake was due to unclear instructions.

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.

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.
