Cleveland’s Case Western Reserve University was recently named one of the country’s trendiest colleges by the Huffington Post. Don’t confuse being trendy with being a party school – like Ohio University which is #1 in that category. The Huffington Post based its list on colleges that were highly desirable. Going into the ranking was not just academics, nightlife and campus facilities but importantly application increases. Case has seen a dramatic increase in applications as they have increased their recruitment.
Case Western’s growing popularity along with Cleveland State University renaissance bode well for these Cleveland colleges and the Cleveland area overall. Universities such as these can bring attention, investment and most importantly – people – to the area.
