“Case may not be a "party school" orQuite BrightUndecided
Case may not be a "party school" or a brand name Ivy, but it truly has several great attributes: it's a smaller university, so you are a person here and can actually easily get into contact with whomever you need to, there are sooo many resources available- for everything from resume writing offices to the writing resource center to personal librarians- and the people themselves possess none of the snobbiness that might come out of attending a high-level school. People are very friendly and kind; if you need help, they will genuinely help you instead of prank you. Students are hardworking and humble. There is a downside, however: There are very few people here who aren't majoring in some kind of professional area, and if you're not, expect to find it more difficult to get your social niche or people who like what you do if your interests are in that area. That being said, no one is going to hold it against you.
I graduated from Case in 2008 with a sociology degree and graduated with a civil engineering degree from Case in 2011. I attended Case for 5 and half years, completed published research, a engineering co-op, and dual degrees. I also become involved in greek life and become a commissioned officer through the ROTC program. I stayed very busy while in school, Case is not for the faint of heart or party driven individuals. It is challanging and chalk full of over-achievers as students and facualty. It is not overly friendly school, its full of nerds, but I found many friends I still keep in touch with. Go to Case knowing you will be challanged and pay top dollar for it. I have zero regret having attended Case and strangely, I love Cleveland.
