I write to you today with hope and optimism. This past weekend, the Class of 2025 moved into their dorms. Due to current COVID protocols, the move-in was different than probably what many of you remember. Nonetheless, they are moved in and ready for the fall semester.
And with the fall semester comes Homecoming. For the last six months, the Case Western Reserve University Alumni Association staff, as well as our colleagues in the schools and units across campus, have been meeting to plan for Homecoming—scheduled this year for the weekend of Oct. 21- 24. The registration went live earlier today and I encourage you to browse the schedule.
Of course, all of us at CWRU want an in-person weekend to happen and are closely monitoring the latest COVID-19 information. If we have to make difficult decisions, we will do so in the best interests of our alumni, students, faculty and staff. As we move closer to the fall, we ask for your continued patience and understanding.
While we have some uncertainty about alumni in-person events this fall, we are certain of the upcoming virtual Town Halls with CWRU President Eric W. Kaler. The events will take place over three days: Tuesday, Aug. 31 at noon ET; Wednesday, Sept.1 @ 7 p.m. ET; and Thursday, Sept. 2 at 9 a.m. Please register to attend here. I hope you will take this opportunity to meet and hear from the university's 11th president.
