Light the Campus

Each year, Case Western Reserve University lights a part of campus to remember community members or their loved ones who have passed away. Students, faculty and staff can submit names to be read during the ceremony. 

The Light the Campus ceremony will be held in-person Monday, Feb. 27, at 5 p.m. on KSL Oval; masking and social distancing protocols will be followed. 

In addition to lighting the trees during the ceremony, students, faculty and staff can pick-up a battery-powered light in Thwing Center after the ceremony to display in their office, dorm or home window throughout the month of March. Candles need to be picked-up in person the day of the ceremony.

Volunteers are needed to assist with reading names and distributing candles during the event.

Submit a name, order a candle or sign up to volunteer.
