    CWRU is a good school with good study programs and research opportunities. Most of the professors are nice and always willing to help. However, the weather in Cleveland during winter is terrible.

    A very academically focused school, with both significant Greek Life and Nerd cultures. Overall, the campus is pretty, the weather leaves something to be desired and the people are nice. Coursework and Academics are excellent, almost all professors are full time and have both academic and professional experience.

    If you're a bit on the geeky side, but would rather enjoy yourself than spend all your time studying, Case Western is perfect for you. Our school is focused on academics, but having a thriving social life is not hard, and the friends you make here will help you through all of your quarter-life crises. Sometimes you get lost in the mire of work, but when all is said and done, this school is great.

    Case is a great place for people who feel the need to produce something tangible. Whether you're in the classroom or with extracurricular activities, there are many opportunities to shine. Some people get caught up in this, but it turns out alright if you find a community.

    CWRU is a great school. Of course, it's not perfect, but one thing that really distinguishes Case is the amount of opportunities students here have. If you are interested in a school that truly cares about you, Case is the place to be.

    Case Western Reserve University can be described in short by three things I personally hold with utmost importance: respect, ambition, and a place to call home. When you just as simply mention the name of this school to people, the atmosphere of your conversation can change. Imagine what power can be associated with someone who holds a degree earned from CWRU. It is no surprise that this school is respected because of the quality of education that can be received here. One must have ambition to succeed at Case, but as your travel along your journey here you will gain even more ambition than ever thought possible. Lastly, Case Western Reserve is made up of around 5,500 undergraduate students. The campus spans beautiful parts of Cleveland, Ohio and although you can be sure to see at least 10 people you know on your walk to class, each time you attend a new event you'll be sure to see an unfamiliar face. Case is my home away from home.

    CWRU has become my new home, and I couldn't imagine myself anywhere else. While the academics are challenging, they aren't impossible and there are always professors and students willing to help. The social life, despite the 'nerdy' reputation Case gets, is actually pretty good; there seems to always be something going on and you'll even see familiar faces if you attend events.

    Case Western Reserve University is a conglomeration of the most devoted yet personable students along with some of the best educated and experienced faculty in the country. Right in the heart of University Circle (and not far from downtown Cleveland), CWRU provides more opportunity to not only go out for a night on the town, but also stay close to home and still get a great meal. Case provides a great network that employers hold in very high regards.
