As we head toward the holiday season, we’re moving closer to a busy time of year at Case Western Reserve University. Soon, we’ll be wrapping up classes, students will be getting ready for finals and we'll be preparing for our annual winter break.
And so, moving into this Thanksgiving break, I hope you will take some time to be kind to yourself, to take a break, and to engage in those things that make you happy. I also want to express my gratitude to our students—and our entire campus community—who have made this fall such a wonderful and inspiring time at CWRU. I know I’ll be taking some extra time this Thanksgiving to reflect on our successes, and think of all we have to be grateful for.
In just a few short weeks you’ll be finishing up the semester and preparing for finals—as you work through these last several weeks, remember that there are many people on campus who are eager to help:
- University Health and Counseling Services, who can provide medical, mental health and wellness services during a stressful time of year;
- a wide variety of academic resources and helpful staff in Student Success who can offer tutoring, workshops and academic guidance;
- Your Navigators, your RAs, the Dean of Students Office and the rest of the division’s staff who are all here to help you succeed.
Thank you, Spartans, for continuing to stand together while prioritizing safety, self-care and care of others. I wish each of you a very happy Thanksgiving! I hope you enjoy the upcoming holidays, and make the most of the rest of our fall semester.
