Arts and Culture

University Circle is the cultural district in Cleveland, and home to nationally recognized arts institutions just steps from students' residence halls and classrooms, giving students extraordinary access to opportunities for academic pursuits and personal satisfaction. 

Further down Euclid Avenue is PlayhouseSquare, home to the country's largest performing arts center outside New York; and on the shores of Lake Erie sits the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a treasure trove of musical history.

Even for those whose academic leanings skew more left-brain than right, Case Western Reserve's cultural offerings add depth to technical studies. For the creative among them, University Circle, one of the nation's most culturally dense square miles, is a wonderland.

This unbeatable combination of a leading research university and one of the country's most comprehensive arts and cultural districts gives CWRU students a chance to see the world from a new perspective and develop cultural and intellectual capital for success
