A Message from the Interim VP for Student Affairs

This is a busy time of year at Case Western Reserve University—students are preparing for finals and we’re all preparing for our annual winter break. I know this can be a stressful time of year, but I hope  your semester ends strong with the last of your final exams, and that you’ll focus on your successes this year and think of all you have accomplished. 

As we head toward the end of year—and a well deserved break—take some time to be kind to yourself, to relax 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 semester such a wonderful and inspiring time at CWRU. 

As you work through these last couple weeks, remember that there are many people on campus who are eager to help: 

For our students who are staying on campus over the winter break, please check the student life website for various activities, support resources and facility access that will be available to you while you’re here.

Best wishes for the winter break with my hope that you get to do whatever you want—rest, adventure and/or time with friends and family. I look forward to seeing you when classes begin on Jan. 16.

Finally, congratulations to those of you graduating after this semester. I wish you all a safe and restful winter break.


Peter Whiting
Interim Vice President for Student Affairs
