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:

Join the Graduate Student Council

Groups of students on a Relay for Life team

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.

As a graduate student you are automatically subscribed to The GSC Newsletter disseminated once a week with pertinent information about upcoming events or campus news specific for the graduate student community.

Follow GSC on Facebook and Instagram

Get Involved in a Student Organization

There are over 100 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.

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.

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.
