  • You are only in the dorms the first year, so it's not bad if it's not for you....its only one year! The only issue is that there is no air…

  • NEW DORMS! Brand new dorms for the 2014 Foundation class, and every room has a bathroom en suite. Can't ask for more than that!…

    You are able to have what's called Case Cash here and it allows you to get groceries and eat anywhere that takes it on Euclid.

    For the first year, they make you live on campus and get a meal plan with Case. There's not many vegan options at all (which is bad for me) but I'll work it out.

    There campus dining hall is huge. Three floors, buffet style kitchen, lots of ice cream and plenty of options to choose from. But there are better places to go. You are right next door to Little Italy. A dozen Italian bistros line the streets, all original recipes and incredible atmosphere. Parks, outdoor dining, bars( if you're old enough) and probably the best pizza place in Cleveland, Mama Santas. Mm. Old clay oven baked, not too greasy, lots of cheese, and a dozen slices. If Italian isn't your thing, there are other options. University Circle is another hot spot for food, and it isn't lacking in options. Sushi can be enjoyed at the new arrival Accent, and Chipotlle and Qdoba have all your taco and burrito cravings covered. Coffee shops are plentiful, as are sandwich shops like Subway and Jimmy Johns. And that's just between E117 and Mayfield Road.

    The school is located in a great area where there are a variety of dining options. Plus, for residential student, CIA and CWRU share the dining hall that is definitely the best college dining hall I've ever been in. There's just so much to choose from and it's all pretty close to the buildings.

    Well as a commuter, I always had to go get my own food, but I had friends in the dorms, so they shared their points with me, and I love the dorms here. Very interesting.

    It's okay. There are places to eat, but the cafe isn't great. Just be smart about your budget and you can cook for yourself!

    The food is really good, and there is a huge selection! You should really try and figure out how much you need to eat during the day/week though, because your meal plan will be really expensive and a waste of resources if you get a plan that is too big for how much you actually eat.

    It exists, but in a roundabout way. CIA only has about 500 students at any given time. So our greek life is piggybacked onto CASE's. We are allowed to join any one of them.

    CIA doesnt have fraternitys or sororitys..... if you want to go to greek parties there are plenty of oppurtunites to meet greek members and attend, but at CIA everyone is on the same boat. In a way we are a collection of all of the high school misfits and outcasts, and that is what unites us. Because we are not normal, it makes us normal within our community.
