FYI Newsletter

Students spell out CWRU on DiSanto Field as part of CWRU's Tradition event

This is the home of the First-Year Information newsletter, or as we like to call it, FYI. We’ll be in touch with you each week to keep you in-the-know about important deadlines, fun events and other must-have info. (Parents and guardians: You’ll be copied, too, so you’ll know what’s happening on campus throughout your student’s first college year.)

Keep an eye on your inbox each Thursday evening to catch the latest edition.
