I know on Cleveland's city data page, that the crime levels seem high. I'm wondering how the crime levels are in the areas of the Cuyahoga Community College and the Case Western Reserve University? If I moved up there I'd probably go to the community college and transfer to Case Western the last two years. Just wondering how safe this area is because from what I've read the colleges seem really good. Thanks

The three main college campuses in the city (Tri-C, Cleveland State, and Case) are all well policed and very safe. Keep in mind that they are in an urban area and ALL urban areas are prone to the typical riff-raff. It's not just Cleveland. However, you shouldn't have problems if you have a little street sense. I'd be more selective about where I was to live. There are definite positives and negatives within the city limits with regards to living arrangements. The schools are all fine.

I'm not sure. Whichever one it is that has the Dietitian Technician degree.

I assumed that you were referring to the metro (downtown) campus. The east and west side campuses are both suburban and near very nice communities. FYI -- Most of the science and medical related programs are either at the metro or eastern campuses.

I graduated from Case Western in 1988. There were several rapes, including a homosexual one, 3 murders, countless muggings and carjackings in University Circle within my first semester there. All the victims were students. The campus is surrounded by Kinsman, Hough and East Cleveland, the worst ghettos in the area. The only neighboring adjacent area that was not ghetto was Little Italy, but it wasn't safe if you weren't white. I recall a black CWRU law student got beaten up by some of the locals there when he walked out of Mama Santa's.

A few years ago, CWRU commissioned it's own university police force, converting many of the non-sworn unarmed security officers to armed, sworn campus police. Since then, crime has declined. Prior to that, the only armed LE presence was the sparsely staffed University Circle Incorporated Police.

I ended up renting an apartment in Cleveland Heights, which was much safer and just up the road outside the city limits. There's no way I'd live on campus or in any of the immediately surrounding neighborhoods.

There's more crime on Ohio State Campus than CWRU campus.

The dorms are waaaaaaay safer than they were 20 years ago. I'm not sure what it was like two decades ago, but there are three police forces that patrol now -- Cleveland PD, University Circle PD, and CWRU PD. Plus, did you know they built new dorms 5 years ago? And new housing all around University Circle?? I'm talking $300,000 places that are selling out. PLUS, University Circle is about to break ground on "Uptown," tons of apartments from Mayfield road to E.118.

That's a lot of $$$ just in residental...

Yeah, this isn't 1988! Dear lord..........a lot, a ton changes in 22 years. If this was 1988 i'd be riding rides at Kiddie Park and shopping at Higbees for barbie dolls. The flats went from the place to be 10 or 15 years ago to nothing now, nothing ever stays the same.

Default Kiddie Park

Hi Cortland , Do u mean no Kiddie Park because ur not a kid anymore ?
or Think it is closed ? The place was to close , when the Drive- In across the street was bought by a local Co. Kiddie Park buyer's was a trucking Co. (Next door to it ), because of the things the trucking firm
decided not to expand, So to all ,the place is still open , so all with kids
keep this in mind if u want something to do with ur kids this summer
