Tuition is extremely expensive, but the education is good. Most professors/lecturers are passionate about their subject areas.

Great mix of people from around the world. Difficult academics, but wonderful preparation for the real world.

CWRU is a very academically inclined school; the students care about their studies and put them first, but find ways to have fun and enjoy their college experience. As a biomedical engineering student, I have very rigorous classes, but joining clubs, a sorority, and getting an undergraduate research position have made my overall experience unforgettable.
