Welcome to our sixth annual Legacy Week! This week, we celebrate the history of Case Western Reserve University and we gather as a community in a celebration of campus pride and school spirit.
Legacy Week stands as a testament to our remarkable birth as an institution and as a summation of our own story. Legacy Week reminds us that we are a grand federation of many institutions, and that the place we inhabit today is a reflection of the best parts of each one. And this year is no different.
This Legacy Week, we invite you to celebrate your place in the history of our university, and to reflect on the moments that brought you here. We also hope you will take part in the many offerings hosted by the Division of Student Affairs, such as:
Celebrate Flora Stone Mather. Visit Guilford House, the yellow cottage named for Flora Stone Mather’s favorite teacher, that served as the first residence hall for women on campus. Grab a potted plant and learn more about the namesake’s legacy.
Embrace “The Ark.” The Ark was an informal gathering place for the early Cleveland intelligentsia which led to the establishment of many of the city’s cultural institutions. Join a fieldtrip to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History Museum to see its exhibit on The Ark, and then explore live animals, gems, rocks and dinosaurs.
Take Part in the Oldest Campus Tradition. Since 1910, the Hudson Relays have commemorated the 26-mile campus move from Hudson to Cleveland. Celebrate the annual tradition, back and in-person! Visit the Division of Student Affairs website for full details.
