Campus Fun Facts
For the first time in our program’s history, two of Case Western’s mock trial teams qualified for the Opening Round Championships (ORCs), thanks to a 4th and 5th place finish at the Dayton Regionals. Although we narrowly lost out on a bid to Nationals in a 6-way tie, three of our members won individual awards at ORCs, with senior Kyle Parker winning a perfect 20 ranks as a prosecution attorney.
Fun fact – Flora Stone Mather – namesake for the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women on campus - built Guilford House (originally a dormitory called Guilford Cottage) to honor her former teacher Linda T. Guilford. She also contributed funds toward the construction of Hayden Hall and Amasa Stone Chapel. She left her mark on campus and on us!
