From Case Western Reserve University

From the moment students become part of the Case Western Reserve University community, they are immersed in and are integral to a culture of ambition and achievement. An entire team of faculty and staff is in place to help you discover opportunities and experiences that move you purposefully toward your career and educational goals. Your peers will inspire you with their curiosity and clever application of what they are learning. You will inspire others by the questions you ask, the risks you take and your desire to make your world better. While we tackle projects and problems—and solve them—in a way that makes us seem like a much larger university, you will find our community of 5,200 undergraduates to be incredibly friendly, kind and encouraging.

Students have broad access to the curriculum across our four schools and colleges: Case School of Engineering, College of Arts and Sciences, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing and Weatherhead School of Management.
