Now I’m not really a museum-kinda-gal; I would much rather learn about the culture of a place through experience rather than reading about it behind a piece of glass. BUT! a) I’m definitely a bit late in time to experience life in ancient Egypt and b) The Cleveland Museum of Art has such a reputation for being outstanding, I simply had to go.

Within the first 2 days of arriving to Case, all the new transfer/exchange students had a day long orientation tour. During this, we had those standard health and safety talks, including being told about ‘safe ride’ which is a school-run lift service that you can contact if ever you feel unsafe around campus after dark (which I thought was pretty handy).
