The Frank N. and Jocelyne K. Linsalata Alumni Center of Case Western Reserve University provides a home away from home for CWRU alumni and the university community. Whether enjoying a cup of coffee by the fireplace or holding meetings in the conference room, the Alumni Center is designed to accommodate all business, social and networking needs. From intimate areas to the 3,500-square-foot Foster-Castele Great Hall, the Linsalata Alumni Center also has the capacity to accommodate events. Built in Georgian-style architecture, this state-of-the art facility offers convenient access, two kitchens and the audio/visual capabilities to enhance any occassion. The Alumni Center is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and as needed for special events.
The Linsalata Alumni Center, named in honor of Frank (CIT ’63) and Jocelyne Linsalata, was dedicated on February 17, 2017. Completed for the dedication, the Foster-Castele Great Hall was built to honor alumni Ted Castele (ADL ‘51, MED ‘57) and Don Foster (ADL ‘50). The original alumni space on campus, consisting of a house built in 1910, was established in 2007. Today, the original house remains as part of the Linsalata Alumni Center.
