Expect crowds next Monday for prospective student open house

crowded campus sidewalkRecently, the university announced applications to the Class of 2017 grew more than 25 percent over last year and 150 percent over five years ago. Now, those applicants are about to get an up-close view of campus when they visit for a President’s Day open house.

On Monday, Feb. 18, the Office of Undergraduate Admission will welcome more than 1,000 extra guests—prospective students and their families—to campus. While we’re thrilled so many bright high school seniors want to see us in person, it does mean the rest of the campus community should expect lines for parking, coffee, meals and more.

Please welcome the visitors to campus with warm smiles and helpful attitudes—and, of course, let them know about the wonderful campus that is Case Western Reserve.

The Office of Undergraduate Admission thanks you in advance for your patience.
