Welcome to the Case Western Reserve University community! 

The Office of First-Year Experience and Family Programs is here to make sure your student's first year is awesome. To that end, we organize the orientation process for all undergraduates and a variety of programming throughout the first year. We also organize resources for parents and families to help you support your student throughout their college experience.

Resources for Parents and Families

We've compiled important information and resources for you as you support your student throughout their CWRU experience. Topics range from campus details, health and safety, academics and more!

Homecoming and Parents Weekend

At CWRU, we celebrate Homecoming as a family... that means you, too! Homecoming & Parents Weekend gives you a chance each fall to spend a few days on campus, checking out your student’s classrooms, visiting their favorite hangouts, and getting to know some of their friends, classmates and teammates.
