First-Year Students

Throughout your first year at Case Western Reserve University, you’ll take part in events and opportunities to make new friends, meet people who will mentor and inspire you, immerse yourself in university traditions, take part in meaningful conversations, and adjust to campus life and involvement.

The Office of First-Year Experience and Family Programs is here to make sure your first year is awesome. To that end, we organize the orientation process for all undergraduates and a variety of programming throughout your first year. We also help with parent and family resources to help inform parents and family members how to best support you throughout your college experience.
