3 ways you can celebrate CWRU during Legacy Week

From making history in the medical field to providing resources to those in need and helping to change lives, today’s students at Case Western Reserve University are impressive. Their efforts build upon those of the generations of students to come before them, each of whom made a lasting impact on CWRU’s history.  

Legacy Week exists to celebrate those contributions, past and present. Organized each spring by the Office of Student Activities and Leadership and the Student Presidents’ Roundtable, the week involves programming and traditions that honor facets of the university’s extensive history—both on campus and beyond—no matter how big or small. 

Whether you’re a first-year student or pursuing your graduate degree, there are many ways you can celebrate CWRU’s ever-evolving story during Legacy Week, which will run from April 24-29. Check out three of our suggestions.

Participate in various week-long programs and events

From trivia contests and bouquet creations to donuts with deans in the Office of Student Affairs, there are plenty of chances for everyone to get involved. And, be sure to keep an eye open for surprise giveaways throughout the week for the chance to win free CWRU swag.

Travel back in time with historical exhibits and displays across campus
