The University is a private, small but high-quality research university with excellent reputation in research and academics.  Today's campus is based upon the 1967 merger of a renowned Tech School, the Case Institute of Technology (famous for Engineering and Applied Sciences, founded 1880), and the Western Reserve University (reputed for Medicine, Arts & Sciences, founded 1826).  

Case has 16 Nobel Prize winners - a remarkable record given its small size - this includes Albert Michelson who became the first American to win a Nobel Prize in science. 

The university campus is the center of the intellectually stimulating University Circle environment (with neighbors including the Cleveland Clinic, the University Hospitals of Cleveland, the Louis Stokes Cleveland Department of Veteran's Affairs Medical Center, Cleveland Institute of Music, the Cleveland Hearing & Speech Center, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, the Severance Hall, and the Cleveland Play House), located in the beautiful east suburb of Cleveland, near Lake Erie, in northeast Ohio.
