Student Turning Point Society's roots began in the fall of 1998 when the University Relations and Development office recognized the need to have a select group of students attend the Endowed Chair Banquet in the new Veale Center. After calling together a group of 15 undergraduate leaders for the event, it became clear that there was a great need for a group of this caliber to serve as a link between the University and its distinguished guests. By winter break, the student leaders decided to formally create a new student group to serve this purpose.

Statement of Mission

We aim to act as ambassadors with the Alumni, Friends, and Community of Case Western Reserve University to work towards maintaining and creating traditions that are valuable to the advancement of the University and its reputation.


The Student Turning Point Society is an honored group of undergraduate student leaders committed to promoting the vision of Case Western Reserve University and dedicated to the ideal that students are responsible for leaving the University a better place than they found it.

In the belief that the University’s interests are advanced by maintaining close ties to its alumni and friends, this Society aims to create opportunities for students who have demonstrated leadership and commitment to the University to provide these constituencies with a perspective on today’s campus.
