I registered to live on campus, but the dorms were filled. I had to live in a apartment owned by Case Western Reserve named The Noble, which is MUCH more cozier than the dorms, which looks like a empty, white, art studio with four beds and two bathrooms. The dorms dies have a personal gym, laundromat, and student ID access doors, but were infested with flies when I moved in from the noble. The noble is my favorite, very cozy, has ovens, and quainter, despite the mice!

Review Your College
Cia has some great professors! But over all they are cutting every thing to save money. (This includes closing the now one building to have party's to make money) it feels like a rats nest because everyone is in one area that is not big enough. This is really bad when you have 3-4 classes happening at once. They are taking away computer labs and turning it in to a art zoo were ppl can come look at the artist and take pictures for a fee.
Classes size are small which gives you more opportunity to know your classmates and professors. Some of the class style are fit for the subject matter you are learning or doing. Other students or classmates are generally helpfully and friendly towards one another. Campus is small enough to get around and get to class very easily. Some courses are very helpfully in improving your artwork or finding your artwork style. Some courses gives you a lot of insight of how create or use different materials, as well create or use different tools for your artwork. Some professors are helpfully on giving you insight but are usually there to give the assignment and just stand around.
