Staying Involved in Campus Life and Culture
Students who attend graduate school at Case Western Reserve have a variety of ways to stay
involved on campus:
1. Join the Graduate Student Council
The Graduate Student Council (GSC) is the governing body for all graduate students at CWRU. GSC serves as the voice of the students and is committed to enriching graduate students' experience through advocacy, social events, support of student organizations, professional development opportunities, health and wellness resources, and much more. Within each school, there are governments that serve as the conduit to the GSC with respect to sharing of pertinent issues and social events.
Follow GSC on Facebook. Posts provide information on events, like GSC Happy Hour, community events, public forums and more. You can also post questions about events or discussions to poll the graduate community. As a graduate student you are automatically subscribed to "The GSC Review", a newsletter disseminated once a week with pertinent information about upcoming events or campus news specific for the graduate student community.
2. Get Involved in a Student Organization
There are over 50 graduate student groups that are recognized by GSC and can be found on CampusGroups. GSC encourages students who would like to start a new group to submit a request to start a new organization. As long as it meets the eligibility requirements, GSC will recognize the group which enables them to apply for funding and take advantage of various services afforded to registered student organizations.
3. Read the Daily
The Daily is Case Western Reserve University's internal communications outlet, distributed every weekday via an e-newsletter to all faculty, staff and students.
4. Stay Connected to Campus and the Cleveland Area
Visit the Center for Civic Engagement & Learning to get involved in community service in and around the city of Cleveland and stay connected by subscribing to their newsletter on the right-hand column of their website. There are wonderful stories about how graduate students are assisting the elderly, building homes in developing countries, assisting communities that have been impacted by crisis and teaching young children to read. These are often posted in The Daily, newsletters and school publications.
