“As a native of New York City, living in the Midwest never crossed my mind. But shortly after moving here, I fell for Cleveland’s charm. The city has something for everyone’s social preferences – you just have to find the right crew and you’re good to go! Over the last year, I have had the chance to check out some of Cleveland’s best restaurants and patios, see some of my favorite artists in concert, and watch Lebron’s last games as a Cleveland Cavalier. Most importantly, Cleveland is a place where I have made some lifelong friendships. I am truly thankful for the experiences that I have had thus far and look forward to making more memories!.”
– Michele Acheampong
“As someone who was born and raised in Michigan and attended the University of Michigan for graduate school, I was never supposed to like Ohio. I moved to Cleveland 5 years ago to serve as an Administrative Fellow for the organization and couldn’t see myself leaving until I had the opportunity to join our Cleveland Clinic London team and further our mission internationally. Having lived in Central London for a few months, I am enjoying it to the fullest yet missing all of the friendships, activities, scenery, and entertainment that Cleveland afforded me during my time there. Cleveland is an incredibly energetic and thriving city to start one’s career. There are countless restaurants, parks, breweries, sporting activities and night life. I look forward to one day relocating back to the city that has given me so much!”
– David Oliphant

Life in Cleveland
Once a haven for immigrants and a powerhouse of industry, Cleveland's cultural identity springs from its past and includes a vibrant mix of families, young professionals, entrepreneurs and college students – all with different ethnicities and backgrounds.
Historically, Cleveland has been roughly broken into two parts, the east and west, split by the Cuyahoga River. The West side is home to the Gordon Square Arts District and attractions like the popular Great Lakes Brewing Company, while the East side houses the trendy East Bank Flats waterfront district and Progressive Field, home to the Cleveland Indians baseball team.
In recent years, Cleveland has been enjoying a renaissance. Today, this metro area on the banks of Lake Erie is experiencing growth and revitalization. With continued development, opportunities abound for construction workers and electricians, as well as for professionals in the medical and IT sectors.
