Studying in Cleveland

Visitors to Cleveland quickly realize what the 2.5 million residents of Greater Cleveland already know- that this is an amazing place to live, work, play and learn! Cleveland is located in northeastern Ohio on the southern shore of Lake Erie, approximately 60 miles west of the Pennsylvania border. It is part of the Great Lakes Region, the country’s largest fresh water source.

Cleveland was founded in 1796 near the mouth of the Cuyahoga River, originally as a manufacturing center owing to its location at the head of numerous canals and railroad lines. Cleveland is now noted for its health care institutions, the arts, research and technology, and its association with rock music; the city is home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Residents of Cleveland are usually referred to as “Clevelanders.” Nicknames used for the city include “The Forest City” and “C-Town.”

What are some of the aspects of Cleveland that Ursuline students enjoy? 
Beachwood Place, Legacy Village, Eton and La Place Center: Shopping, shopping, shopping! What more could you ask for with three malls- one indoor and two outdoor – all about 5 minutes from the Ursuline College campus! These locations include a full food court and nineteen restaurants serving sushi, steak, smoothies, stir-fry and much more!

Chagrin Falls: Downtown Chagrin Falls has a nostalgic feel to it. You can walk around and view the waterfalls with your ice cream after visiting the Chagrin Falls Popcorn Shop or sit down and eat lunch or dinner at Yours Truly, a family-run diner. There are also spas, salons, clothing, antique and gift shops. Every year Chagrin Falls hosts the Blossom Time Balloon Festival, a magnificent display of hot air balloons.

Coventry Village: Coventry Village is a trendy area just off Cedar Road about 7 miles from campus. There you will find the Grog Shop- a venue for many popular musicians, Tommy’s Restaurant (vegetarian selections and the best milkshakes in town), Big Fun (named recently in a national publication as “one of the 20 coolest stores in all of America”), Coventry Park, and many other restaurants and shops to hold your interest!

Metroparks: The Cleveland Metroparks is a ring of parks surrounding the Cleveland suburbs totaling over 20,000 acres, making it the largest public park system of any metropolitan area in the United States. Often referred to as the Emerald Necklace, the Metroparks offer hiking and biking trails, golf, fishing, polo fields, tobogganing, swimming and horseback riding. The South Chagrin Reservation is about 10 minutes from campus. You can visit Squaw Rock, cook out, view a polo match or visit the Arboretum.

University Circle: Just nine miles east of Ursuline, University Circle is an urban oasis where more than 20 artistic and cultural venues may be found. These include the Cleveland Botanical Garden, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, the Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art, the Cleveland Orchestra, and the Western Reserve Historical Society.
