What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you want to go do med school, engineering, or the hard sciences, then it's the school for you, otherwise, give it a passing thought. The freshman dorms aren't the greatest, the on-campus food is decent at best, and the neighborhood around is full of over-priced merchandise and dangerous. The kids here are alright, some of them are great, but a lot of them that I've met either act like crackheads or are crackheads. Honestly, if you haven't found your group of friends within the the first two months, you'll have a hard time finding them since it's not a big undergrad class. To be completely honest, the only thing keeping me here right now is the fact that it's a top 50 school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CWRU is an excellent school if you’re looking for smart, responsible students. The faculty is very helpful and is almost always available to help if you’re looking for tips to studying. It’s very easy to make friends since there are so many clubs. It’s right outside of Cleveland, so traveling for a night out only takes 16 minutes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The first month I came to case I absolutely regretted it. I wanted to transfer and actually filled out applications to do so. The social life from my freshman perspective was non existent, and school was kicking my a**. HOWEVER, all these people who claim case has no social scene and isn’t a party school have one reason for saying it. They do not know enough people. After about my 3rd month on campus and beginning to socialize more especially with Greek life I found myself going to parties/bars every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I never had a problem finding something to do. As for the academics they still are super hard but I’ve learned to adapt to them. By the end of the year I LOVED case. Your time here will be what you make it. I promise case will prepare you for the real world and you’ll have a ton of fun doing it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Case Western Reserve University is very positive. After my school year at CWRU, some of the aspects of the university I rave about the most are the professors, resources, and student life. At CWRU, professors are required to partake in research and hold office hours, making them incredibly accessible and easy to develop a relationship with, even in larger lecture hall classes. In regard to resources on campus, plenty of options such as peer tutoring, SI sessions, and TA office hours enable students to find extra help outside of the classroom. Other offices are available for counseling, finding research, preparing for study abroad, discussing post graduate-planning, and so on. Additionally, I absolutely love the students on campus. CWRU students are collectively friendly and driven, making it a great environment to feel included and learn. However, students on campus also love to explore, and we take advantage of the many on-campus events, extracurriculars, and Cleveland-area activities around us. I feel like I truly belong at CWRU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

CWRU has resources and potential to be a top 20 university without a doubt. It has some of the best pre-med connections in the world (on par with Hopkins), qualified professors, and smart students. The academics are extremely rigorous and severely underrated because of some fundamental issues revolving around the school: 1) campus safety has some flaws due to the campus being integrated within the city rather than it being a separate entity (closed off like Northwestern for example) 2) Name. Maybe a dumb reason at face value but the name of a university means a lot in terms of marketing and branding. CWRU's marketing and branding team is poor to say the least. 3) biggest reason by far is the unwilling nature for administrators to form many partnerships with companies to help students gain internships and jobs. Schools like Harvard have great ties with Deloitte and pursue companies into becoming major recruiters. Case does not pursue this cause as fervently as it should. 4) Honestly, the humanities here are nearly nonexistent. Perhaps they should adopt a structure like a tech school (which it was before as Case Institute of Technology) and devote its resources to STEM fields first (CWRU's clear strength). MIT is a tech school but still offers some humanities majors as well, yet the majority of their resources goes to developing STEM labs etc. CWRU should make STEM the main priority and become a tech school like it once was.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A rigorous and academically fulfilling university that prepares it's students exceptionally well for the real world. I think it has the potential to be a top 30, even top 20, school, if the school revamped some of the academic facilities, housing, and dining options on campus. Incredible strides have been made in the renaissance of the University Circle neighborhood, but more student-centric options would make the campus even more appealing, such as a small movie house and a place which could foster more of an inclusive, in-person on campus experience. The internet and connectivity is incredible, but I wish this could also be extended to the in person assistance a student might want to receive should they inquire about it. The study abroad options and programs are phenomenal and better than most ivy league schools in my opinion. Creating more of a unification between arts and STEAM students would also help create a stronger overall school spirit and campus identity. I really think the sky is the limit for this university and the promising additions in infrastructure they have in the upcoming years should make this institution more prestigious than it already is.

Case Western Reserve is a beautiful campus. There are many career opportunities once you leave Case Western and even some while you are there. I thought it was interesting that they have a work room for everyone on campus to come and even off campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Case Western Reserve University is essentially two things: a community and a home. CWRU is a place to grow and experience, to love and be loved by faculty and peers and 'Landers – all in the truest sense of the word. Case Western Reserve is a corpus of academics, a school with a vision and a student body with full range of ideas and perspectives. Every school has a nice library and a few good professors, but CWRU stands out as the place where conversations carry on into the night and words provoke real action. There may not be a lot of school spirit around our [really good] sports teams, but there is an undying pride nearly every student shares to be at the forefront of so much of the world's most important research endeavors. This is a school for the inspired and the adventurous; any less of a leader will find themselves struggling to find a place amongst the biggest fish in the lake.
