Why Come to Cleveland?

We'll admit it. Cleveland hasn't always had the best reputation. But take it from Clevelanders: we love it here and so will you!

Let us explain: Ranked as one of the country's most livable cities and home to more than 2 million people, Cleveland and the surrounding metropolitan area are nestled on the lovely shores of Lake Erie. It's a mid-sized city with great potential for young professionals (and their families) and it's in the midst of a nationally-recognized revival in all of its major industries: manufacturing, finance, healthcare, and biomedicine. We have four distinct seasons, year-round outdoor activities, and summers full of fairs, markets, and festivals. And outside of Cleveland, the story is spreading that our prime waterfront location, innovative and hot new food scene, active green spaces, and diverse cultural and arts centers are worth your attention.

Case Western Reserve University is located on 550 park-like acres in one of Cleveland's most exciting urban areas: University Circle, just five miles east of Downtown. From campus, you are just a 10 minute walk to some of the city's most outstanding attractions (the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra and a literal circle of museums. And that's just a taste of what Cleveland can offer!
