Alum becomes first CWRU graduate to be a Schwarzman Scholar
Jeremy Rodrigues (CWR ‘21; GRS ‘21, military ethics) made history as the first graduate of Case Western Reserve University to be named a Schwarzman Scholar.
The highly competitive leadership program takes place at Schwarzman College on the campus of Tsinghua University in Beijing. Through the fellowship, Rodrigues will earn a Master of Global Affairs degree.

Cleveland Humanities Festival
Beginning March 1, virtual and in-person events
The 2022 Cleveland Humanities Festival offers public programming exploring the theme of “Discourse” through a variety of humanistic perspectives.
Coordinated by the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities of Case Western Reserve University, the festival partners with Cleveland and Northeast Ohio’s major museums, educational institutions and arts organizations. This year it aims to address how we communicate with one another, including the dialogue within and between local communities, cultural institutions, corporations, and other key sites of social exchange.
Taking place the last Saturday of the spring semester, Springfest is a student-planned event that celebrates CWRU and fosters campus unity.
Beginning in 1910, the Hudson Relays was created to commemorate the campus move from Hudson, Ohio to Cleveland, Ohio. Each class's best runners are put to the test in a 26-mile relay around campus. As per tradition, if the same class wins four years in a row, they are treated to a steak and champagne dinner, courtesy of the president and provost. To date, only three classes have ever achieved this goal!
During Legacy week various university departments, offices, student organizations, staff, faculty and students host programs and events to celebrate the history of Case Western Reserve University.
