A weekly conversation between your campus Marketing gals Brittney & Becca. TGIF!
After taking a “Good Friday” break last week, we are talking Cleveland: Why Becca loves her hometown and how Britt is growing to feel the same about her new home. We had the opportunity to grab lunch in Ohio City with the blogger behind I Heart Cleveland, Charity D’Amato – aka, a fabulous resource for all things Cleveland! Below is the first installment of our two-part series featuring Charity. Part two to come soon!
Today is the official start of spring! (We know it doesn’t feel like it, but, promise, spring has arrived!) To get you in a warm weather mood, we’ve drafted a “Cleveland spring checklist.” Please share your favorite spring to-do’s with us on social media #SpringtimeinCle.
Have you ever asked yourself, what is college in Cleveland like? The Marketing Department recently went on a road trip to find out. Our goal is to showcase Cleveland and the Northeast Ohio area – on a student’s budget. After spending most of the day on the Eastside in Chagrin Falls and Little Italy, we headed west for Cleveland’s Artisan Neighborhood, Ohio City.
Ohio City strives to develop, preserve and promote the diverse, historic, urban community. One of Cleveland’s older neighborhoods, redevelopment and rediscovery has attracted projects focusing on commercial development, including expanded storefront renovation and a multi-million dollar renovation of the West Side Market. Newly constructed condominiums and townhouses throughout the neighborhood, as well as a thriving retail and restaurant scene, have added vitality to the popular Cleveland neighborhood.
Check out our notes and photos from our evening in Ohio City!
