Helping Make CWRU Your Home

As an international student at Case Western Reserve University, we want to ensure you have a quality educational experience—and that our campus community learns and benefits from you and your cultural experiences.

We can assist you with:

  • Immigration matters
  • Intercultural exchange opportunities
  • Connecting to CWRU resources
  • Understanding the social and academic culture at CWRU and in the U.S.
