Summer on the Cuyahoga (SOTC) is open to students of Case Western Reserve University, Colgate University, Cornell University, Denison University, Oberlin, Ohio Wesleyan University, Smith College and University of Chicago. The program brings together 50 - 70 students for an intensive summer immersion program designed to help interns explore the professional, civic and social offerings of the Cleveland area. In partnership with employers and community leaders, the program showcases the region's abundant opportunities to the student participants. The goal is to attract talented graduates for full-time positions in the region. More about Summer on the Cuyahoga
Provide short-term housing for interns (Homestay)
Provide temporary housing to SOTC CWRU interns at the beginning and/or ending of the SOTC program. Students live in Cleveland State University dorms for most of the summer. However, some internships are longer than the period when dorms are available. Housing needs would be in May and August.
Mentor an Intern (Alumni Host)
Match with a SOTC CWRU intern to serve as a professional mentor and connection to the Cleveland community. Attend SOTC opening and closing ceremonies and other events open to hosts. Meet with your intern occasionally over the summer for coffee, lunch or even a home cooked meal.
Host an Event for SOTC CWRU Interns
Host a casual cookout or other event at your home or a discussion about your career/industry, graduate school experience, etc.
