Apartments Near Case Western Reserve University Apartments in Cleveland
Best university, best value, why, as a Cleveland apartment-ite, that's the school for you! Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland is rated as one of the best national universities and among the best value schools in the special section "America's Best Colleges 2009," a report by the magazine U.S. News & World Report. Established 1836, the university offers boundless opportunities for motivated students, with more than 60 majors and many choices of minors in four undergraduate colleges. The colleges of arts and sciences, engineering, management and nursing provide an excellent faculty who balance challenge and support to help students flourish. A school of Law and a school of Medicine, along with a host of graduate programs add to Case Western's prominence and excellence in higher education. In addition, the university partners with world-class cultural, educational and scientific leaders and institutions to ensure that students' education extends beyond the classroom.
While Case is not necessarily a large university, it surely can be regarded as such. The resources, breadth of programs, and opportunities of a large university are specified with a student population of only 4,300 and a 9:1 student-to-faculty ratio. Small seminars, faculty mentoring and hands-on learning are what distinguish Case. The environment is of a small college where meaningful relationships are built with professors and fellow students. As a major research university (Case is in the top 15 among private universities in federal funding for research), the faculty serves as scholars as well as teachers.
Opportunities abound for the undecided freshman student at Case. The school provides a single-door admission policy that means when you're admitted to Case, you're admitted to all of the majors (except music, to account for quality control). And, this allows students to easily double major or choose very different majors and minors. It also means that undecided students have complete flexibility in finding their passion.
There's the College of Arts and Sciences, with all the typical majors under this category such as English, Mathematics and Physics, plus several foreign languages including French, German and Spanish, and international studies of Asia, France, Germany and Japan. The Case School of Engineering with majors in Aerospace, Chemical, Computer and Mechanical engineering, as well as others. The Weatherhead School of Management gives major degrees in Accounting, Economics and Business. A BS in Nursing is offered at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing.
Case offers incredible Combined Undergraduate and Graduate Programs in business, engineering, medicine, dental medicine, social work and law. In the business school, you can pursue a B.S and an M.S. on a five year program that will prepare you for employment in much higher demand, or for a doctoral program. If you are admitted to a Case professional school, nursing, medicine, dentistry or social sciences, by the end of your junior year when you're living in your Cleveland apartment, you may be able to shorten your undergraduate course work by one year through their program called Senior Year in Professional Studies, by working in the professional arena at that time.
