What Students Are Saying

3.99 Average Rating
Study really hard and apply for tons of scholarships and you'll work yourself to a degree that'll be from a school with an excellent reputation!
Meaghan from Harrah, OK
Make a list of what you look for in a school. The weather in Cleveland is very cold and windy during the winter which can make it difficult to motivate yourself to go to class at times. The education is great but the social life can be slower than a lot of other schools as a result of the workload.
Josh from Kettering, OH
Don't be afraid to check out Case Greek life. It doesn't fit the normal stereotype, and you will meet a lot of great friends.
Go to the book swap for super cheap used textbooks.
AND develop time management skills early freshman year. If your GPA starts high, then you never have to pull it back up.
Brittany from Macungie, PA
If you are planning to attend Case Western Reserve University be prepared to spend most nights staying in and studying. Being a student here demands tremendous time management skills, as well as knowing how to study. Tips for future students include learning your best study techniques before you actually attend, not only this university, but any college. This will help you so much in the long run so you won't be spending your first semester fumbling through you classes because you never learned what study habits work best for you. Another tip; join any club you can. This is a great way to meet new people outside of your dorm and your major. Its a great way to learn how to network as well.
Sarah from MEDINA, OH
Case is a great school if you like a somewhat small student environment. You tend to recognize faces after a short time, but its big enough that not everyone can know everyone. Make sure you have an idea of what you want to do before coming to Case.
Prospective students should consider the type of school they wish to attend. CWRU is unique in that the graduate school is larger than the undergraduate school. This means there is usually a lot of opportunity to complete research and attend graduate schools. The biggest help, is to perform well in high school and research the many schools you are interested in.
PF from Cleveland, OH
Winter is coming Make sure you bring a winter coat and snowboots because the lovely Cleveland winters will surely come. Also, don't head in to Case making the assumption that you are the smartest person in the world. (We already have enough of those sorts)
Chill Murray
Do your research. CWRU excels in the sciences, especially with the research and internship opportunities offered by the school and nearby hospitals. A lot of the students here are planning on careers in engineering or the medical fields, so that should send up some flags if you're an English major. The breadth is great for exploring, but make sure CWRU has strong programs in what you're interested in pursuing.
Christy from Boise, ID
If you don't know how to study yet because you never had to in high school, really try to learn how to do that. I didn't learn until my junior year, and my GPA suffered a bit from that. Don't be afraid to study, because studying is almost like a contest here! But also be sure to SLEEP; it'll make your studying more effective, you'll feel great, and everyone will be jealous if you manage to get 7 hours a night. Decide what kind of activities interest you, and when you come in, go to the student activites fair and get information from a few campus groups! I promise, there is SOMETHING here that you will enjoy.
Maria from Cleveland, OH
Check out everything. It's not just a STEM school. It has a joint program with CIM and CIA, stellar English faculty, and a fabulous business school. Come visit, and meet with professors; they're great to talk to. If you like sports, contact the coach. In my experience, they are always willing to discuss logistics with you. Really get a feel for it.
